Parent Testimonials
“We highly recommend iAchieve learning! Our daughter, Sarah, struggles with Math and was placed with a teacher that did a great deal of independent learning which did not work well for her.  The tutor Sarah was amazing and really helped our Sarah gain the confidence and skills to succeed in Geometry! Sarah also tutored our Sarah for her first ACT this month and while we don’t know the results just yet, she went into the test with knowledge and confidence that really made those sessions worth it! “- Carrie

“Our daughter was preparing for the ACT exam this last fall, so we reached out to iAchieve for guidence. They matched us with an excellent tutor, communicated clearly and effectively, worked with our schedule and help her to increase her score from the initial test exam to her first ACT exam. The assistance received also helped her work on areas that were going to be covered later in the year – making it easier when the “new material” was presented. We highly recommend iAchieve to anyone looking to supplement learning or prepare for the SAT / ACT exams.” – Paul, parent

“My son was really struggling with executive functioning skills and I just didn’t know what to do.  I would spend hours with him each week trying to organize his assignments which ended up in arguments in the long-run.  We hired an Academic Coach from iAchieve Learning and I cannot believe what a difference it has made!  My son now has a regular routine that he follows each week and he has not missed turning in an assignment in months!  Thank you!” – parent from Park Ridge

“My 7th grade son has really been struggling with math and we didn’t know where to turn.  One of my neighbors suggested contacting iAchieve Learning so that he can work with a tutor.  They were so helpful and accommodating and within the past couple of months his grade has really gone up.  He really enjoys the one-on-one sessions.”  – Mary, parent from Park Ridge

“I have a son who was having a hard time making the transition from elementary to middle school. He’s in the accelerated courses, but was getting lost with the added responsibility expected. By the time we figured it out, he had pulled a C- in math, which was probably a gift from the teacher. Not only was he falling behind in assignments, but now had missed some crucial learning. I looked for a tutor.  Sarah at iAchieve hooked us up with a weekly tutor. The tutor and my son hit it off (both bookish guys and fond of math theory). Before long, my son was caught up. Now he comprehends all the lessons and instead of almost getting kicked out of the accelerated program, he’s pulling a solid B, and may even pull off the A by the end of the year.
Sarah runs a tight ship, very professional. All around it was exactly what we needed to get the most out of our boy. Thanks!” – Mel, parent

“My daughter has been taking piano lessons with iAchieve Learning for a little over a year now.  She has progressed so much and her confidence is really building up.  She puts on little shows at home for the family and is getting very excited to perform in the spring recital!  We would highly recommend iAchieve Learning.” – Lisa, parent

“I contacted I Achieve Learning over a year ago to find a math tutor for my daughter who was entering the eighth-grade double accelerated math program.  Vanessa had worked with different tutors from other tutoring agencies, but iAchieve Learning exceeded her and our expectations.  The quality of the tutoring is exceptional! Therefore, we hired a math tutor for our younger daughter. Both tutors have worked hard and kept both of our daughters engaged in learning. At the same time our daughters have had a wonderful experience and amazing test results.  We are thankful to have the help from iAchieve Learning. When we think about our daughter’s education, we don’t worry because we know they will be well prepared for their ACT and other tests.” – Parents of a freshman at Glenbrook South High School and 6th grader at Field Middle School
