My 9-year-old son has been struggling with reading and writing since he was young. We were fortunate enough to get him into New Horizons Society and he comes twice a week. Since coming we have seen a huge boost in his confidence and he was able to write out a letter to Santa and READ it back to us, for the first time ever!
We have a 12-year-old daughter decided to homeschool this year, and despite her report cards she had almost zero concept of basic math. New Horizons Society has a tutor working with her once a week and the one-on-one time is exactly what she needed! She has almost fully caught up to grade level in a few short weeks! Amazing staff that really cater to the kids needs!
