“I started tutoring thinking I wasn’t smart or capable. Tutoring gave me the push I needed—and my tutor made it fun as well, with careful steps and mental pictures that helped me remember details. Inspiration Education has raised my standards, my grades, my confidence, my motivation—and my view on my potential. It has transformed me into a risk taker and a ‘do-er.’”
