"I have ALWAYS had the goal of overcoming my time-management problems, since they have been a burden on me throughout my entire life. Imagine feeling as if you were trapped underwater, with a chain around your ankle connected to a heavy weight. Your whole life, you've been struggling to break the chain and swim to the surface so that you can breathe. Finally, you gather enough strength to break off the chain and break the surface of the water, filling your lungs with oxygen. That feeling of relief, as if your life was just saved, is how I feel now after my experience with my success coach." - Julia, Class of 2011
"I have gotten A's on all of the tests that I went to my Peer Educator for, when I felt completely lost before meeting with him. Thank you so much for all of the help."
"The Peer Educator has helped break down complicated concepts into simpler, more understandable concepts. His use of illustrations on the board as well as step-by-step descriptions have been extremely helpful. He has made me feel more confident with the material presented on class. His sessions are extremely helpful, especially in terms of preparing for exams. He really knows what he is talking about and how to relate that to students who are struggling with complicated concepts."
