“When my son started at a new school and found himself failing math, I called Nancy. She immediately met with him for two half-hour sessions, instituted a daily check-in system via text, and within three weeks he has raised his grade to a B! Sometimes she even takes him rock climbing or to the gym. He now wakes up excited on the days he knows he’s going to see her. The improvement in his level of self-confidence is incredible.”
