I thank God for people like Pastor and Mrs. Humphrey. I commend them on running a top-notch professional tutoring program, which has afforded my son [Dawson Wilson] and now my daughter [Peyton Herrin] an opportunity to excel in their school studies all at no charge. As a single working parent this program has helped me tremendously. If I'm working late, not only am I free from worries that homework is being completed I also know my children will receive a healthy snack to hold them over. If you are looking for an establishment to assist you with your child's success I would honestly recommend this particular program. My son is now a High School graduate and has gone on to attend College. The help he received from the staff here helped to give him the extra push he needed. The tutors are not your ‘Regular Joes’, many of them are currently schoolteachers and college professors giving back to their community and I am one proud parent who appreciates their efforts.
