“Brody has been attending Oxford Learning for 5 months. He was incredibly nervous and shy at the beginning. The teachers have been amazing at helping Brody come out of his shell and have created a safe and welcoming environment for him to learn at his own pace. Over 5 months the teachers at Brody's school have commented on his overall improvement in reading and language comprehension. Brody is in turn more confident in his abilities and doesn't fear asking for help. He is going to continue attending Oxford Learning for the long term. It's a special "club" that he is a part of and now enjoys learning more than ever.”
