My 5th grade son, Jonathan was struggling terribly with reading and writing skills, which included fluency, comprehension, spelling, sentence structure and writing paragraphs/essays. He was very frustrated and unmotivated about going to school and doing any kind of academic work, just at the point where he didn't even want to try (at school or at home). It was a constant struggle and battle at home after school during homework/study. Not only was my son frustrated, I was too, day after day, week after week. After contacting Club Z and meeting with the area director in my home, I still was not sure what to expect. During the first tutoring session, Jonathan immediately clicked with his tutor. I couldn't believe it! His tutor was very patient and understanding and was also like a mentor/role model for him; he was able to get Jonathan to work. The tutor combined Jonathan's school curriculum and his own lessons based on Jonathan's learning needs and was successful in helping my son retrieve the reading and writing skills that had been lost along the way. Jonathan's teacher has noticed such a positive difference since we implemented after school and Saturday tutoring and called to tell me how impressed she was. Our friends and family also noticed the difference in Jonathan's overall attitude! Not only does Jonathan look forward to going to class, he is even excited about going middle school next school year. We will definitely acquire the services of our Club Z tutor, if/when any future academic needs arise. I truly mean it when I say Jonathan's tutor was a god-send and my family appreciates him more than words can ever describe! The addition of a tutor made our lives so much better! Thank you so much Club Z!
