At first I didn't want my parents to hire a tutor because I didn’t want to spend extra time doing work. When I thought of tutoring I figured it would be boring, but now I look forward to meeting with Brea because our meetings are interactive and she lets me decide what topics I’m interested in. My writing has improved and I enjoy our meetings.
Age 12, Enrichment
I've learned that there is no such thing as a perfect parent. Moms make mistakes but we also learn from them. There is always something to learn...Programs like this [are] always a good idea.
Age 21, School-based parenting group
"The training was great! Well balanced between presentation and audience engagement with surveys and response. Unstressful - you didn't call on people that may not wanted to speak out. Asking for volunteers and whole group response was great! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!" - "LOVE the plan. Love that there was action and not so much lecturing on what needs to be done." - "I liked the inclusion of trauma; trauma-informed work is becoming more salient. Appreciated the holistic approach, activities were great!"

My individual meetings help me because they help me express how I feel about something or someone. I will change how I respond to someone when they're talking to me in a way I don't want to be talked to.

Staff feedback, Trauma training
Brea is a great tutor - she helped me prepare for the ACT. During our time together she has been helpful, accommodating, and patient. She has the right qualities I wanted in a tutor, and I am glad that I met her when I was first searching.

I spent a quality time learning English thanks to Brea. She was a competent and patient teacher with professional skills. Because of my occupation she always took time for me and my lessons whenever I wanted or needed.
