All of the students were at risk of failure in public school, however, they all were able to turn their education around and rise to at least grade level or well above grade level by year's end, as evidenced by their standardized test results. All were below or well below grade level at the outset.

My expertise is in identifying my students' strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles to enable me to quickly tailor my lessons to suit their needs. Thus, time is not wasted, and my studen" less...
