“Our daughter needed help in math and reading. She was already benefitting from the smaller class sizes, but we were able to tailor her support in the classroom. Additionally, she receives consistent, one-on-one instruction in an environment favorable to her learning style. She looks forward to her time with the ADC teacher and definitely feels more confident in the classroom because of the private instruction. The ADC staff helps her with organizational and time management strategies that will have long-term benefits.”
