“… I had failing grades. [After joining First Serve], whenever my parents were not able to help me with math and science, I was able to put a smile on my face because I looked forward to tutoring. I felt relief and the stress soon fade away. My scores were getting higher in each class and I had a chance of confidence in my classes. I was able to raise my hand to answer the problem loud and proud.”
