“[Our Study Buddy has been] AWESOME for my younger son. She's simply amazing! She has been totally staying on top of everything, also a great communicator. My son enjoys every and each session he has with [his Study Buddy] and tells me how [much more] effective she is than me. We all look forward to her session every time. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done!”
