Student and Volunteer Success Stories

" I have vever had any one to stick with me or help me like you have"
This was a quote form a college student that Array tutored. He was recruited in college for his skills in football. He attended college and played football for awhile and deceided he did not want to play anymore. He decided to join the band and played on the drumline as a symbol player. He noticed his grades were declining no matter how hard he studied or tryed. He had a slight mental disability along with writing and reading comprehension. This made it extremely difficult understanding what he heard and read. He was ready to give up, due to his grades where unacceptable on a collegiate level. He and his mom reached out to Array for help. Array scheduled meetings with the Dean and his professors. There were decisions mad collectively that best suited his needs so that he would not drop out of college. Through days, weeks and two and half years of tutoring and mentoring him, he was able to graduate from collge with a bachelor degree in Computer Science. He graduatled and was asssited with gaining employment in his major.
