quoted textWorking with my tutor at Morrissey-Compton has helped me get better grades and fully understand what is being taught in my biology class. I meet with her once a week, and she always makes sure that I understand everything that I learn in class. We might review a topic that was taught in class, start studying for an upcoming test that I might have, or she might answer my questions on some concepts that I didn't fully understand. I am now able to understand topics in my biology class that I know I wouldn't have been able to understand on my own."

We are very grateful to our tutor for giving her time and energy to our son so that might improve, day-by-day, his writing and reading."

quoted textMorrissey-Compton Educational Center has helped me and my family greatly. In my home, our first language is Spanish. I have two younger brothers who received scholarships for tutoring. Before they started getting help, they were falling behind in their schoolwork. Once they started getting help, after eight months I saw a tremendous improvement. I would like to really thank all the staff members for their hard work and dedication."
