“There are no words to express my gratitude for Counsel Academy! Nivideta took the time to get to know my child and matched him with a perfect resource. But the service doesn’t stop there. She continues to check in, making sure that the tutor and my child are connecting and getting results. Our tutor, Larry has been an amazing fit and identified the areas in the curriculum where my son had deficiencies. He was able to get him up to speed in pre-calc and AP exam ready in AP Chem! We are thrilled with Counsel Academy and can’t recommend them enough!” Erica Weiner, Parent of 10th Grade Student
