from TAS Students
“I’ve been with my tutor for about one year. You wouldn’t believe how far I’ve come from when I started. I was having trouble with math and science, and I was considering changing my college major as a result.
” – Maya Harridass
“I’ll admit it was scary thinking about graduating to middle school, but TAS made the transition very easy! My tutor was easy-going and encouraging to not only myself but everyone in the class, and I’m excited to make new friends and apply my new skills next year.”
” – Anna Kvizkov
