Meet and Greet for Math

On Saturday we held a 'meet and greet' for parents and student s of Math-E-Zee tutoring centre. Feedback was very positive from children and parents, all of whom said the Math scorers had improved. Some, of course have a way to go. But one Mom, a teacher, told us her boy went from 30% to 68% . A boy who has just finished HS spoke eloquently of his work in Math and said he thinks it will have made a difference of 20 marks in his National exam. I don't think they would have bothered to attend if they did not see value in the program. We are still not quite breaking even but think that word of mouth will boost our numbers.

After the meeting and a quick soda, the instructors went right back to work.
