Darlene Allen Nichols

“The students have been such a blessing to me. When they have an ‘aha moment,’ I am simply overjoyed! It has been rewarding to see the positive impact I am able to provide.”

Region 1 Tutor | Burnham Elementary

"I would HIGHLY recommend. This needs to be implemented everywhere! Not only do the kids take something away from it, but the teachers too. I think that teachers will see such an exciting difference in their students. Parents will see more confidence in their learners. I can't rave about it enough."

"There is nothing comparable to the cheerfulness and creativity of how kids see the world. As adults, we lose some of this feeling, so it is great to be around kids and enjoy their occurrences while teaching them. It has also helped me to think creatively to discover the best way to get through to them on several occasions!"

"My students' self-confidence has increased tremendously. They went from not wanting to read out loud or work a math problem, to asking to read out loud and going to the board to add a column of numbers before the class."
