I would like to thank you for what Oxford Learnig has done for my son. Sammy started the Little Readers as a shy three-year old who didn’t speak a word of English. Today, just a year and a half later, he not only speaks the language fluently, he is reading and writing! Your centre has taught my son so much more than the ABCs and One-Two-Threes…His level of confidence, communication, and social skills wouldn’t be where they are not if it wasn’t for Oxford Learning!
Beyond the progress made academically, we have seen unbelievable improvements in Bria’s selfconfidence and self esteem. I think that the biggest gain that Bria has made this year is how she handles the unexpected. Oxford Learning has provided a safe environment for Bria to further develop her coping skills for when things don’t go according to plan. Thank you so much for being such a positive influence on my daughter!
Advantage High School Success
This is the first time that my son has ever actually looked forward to June finals. He’s now using all the strategies that you’ve taught him. He’s organized, manages his time, and he studies more. We used to have an ordeal every time a test came along. Now he just seems to handle everything so much better.
Thank you so much!
