PARENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
“Our Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor has provided excellent academic support to my 7th grade son. Last year we had battles and tears over homework. This year with Jerry’s weekly tutoring, not only has my son’s resistance to homework and studying decreased, his grades have gotten better and better with Jerry’s help and guidance. He has an ability to relate to my child that somehow engages and challenges him to think at the same time. He never tells my son what the answers should be, but asks good questions, turns learning into something fun and provides clear academic structures and support all at the same time. He is easy to work with and a delight to have found. I’m happy that my son is so agreeable to working with him and I, for one, couldn’t be happier with the services we have received from Y3K. Everything from science lab reports, to math and writing Jerry seems to have a way to help both my son and me through the homework and demands of 7th grade.”
