Testimonial specific to SAT preparation:
JUST MATH worked with my son, a high school senior, to prepare him for the SAT. The highest math class my son took in high school was Trigonometry, during his junior year (He earned a "D" in Trigonometry). After three sessions at JUST MATH, my son beat both the national and state averages on the math section of the SAT. *It was his 1st time taking the SAT!
Testimonial specific to summer programs:
"We'd like to schedule another summer math program with you for XXXXXXX to prepare him for eighth grade Algebra. XXXXXXX has been doing exceptionally well this year in Pre-Algebra -- I don't know exactly what or how you taught him to "Think Math" but it worked and we'd like him to have the same jump start for 8th grade as he did for 7th grade "

He can’t wait to come back next week, and has a completely different attitude from when we left to come to see you tonight. Good hunch on the “small group” work with him, it made the world of difference. He didn’t get bored at all, and really enjoyed it. Sometimes all it takes is just an attitude adjustment and some additional confidence to really excel at something. This may just really be the key we were looking for with him! Thanks again, and we will see you next week.”
