"I was always challenged in school when it came to taking tests. Everything else clicked, but I had terrible tests scores. I took a few test preparations classes and my scores have really improved. Thanks for working with me."

John McCoist

"I was impressed with the wide variety of classes offered at the Learning Center. I don't have to drive across town after work to go to school. I just go home and jump online. This made going back to school easier than I expected.. I'm glad a friend recommended this."
