Diya J.

Diya told us she really enjoys classes at A Grade Ahead, and she’s gotten to experience both our math and English curriculums! She noted that A Grade Ahead classes have helped her complete schoolwork and  improve her grades. Specifically, Diya is grateful for A Grade Ahead’s help with testing in school: along with the invention convention, her proudest moments are feeling accomplished on tests at school (thanks to the help of A Grade Ahead)!

“I like doing [numericals], and in reading, I like learning about this topic we’re learning right now which is commas and quotation marks, and it’s kind of challenging for me, and I like challenges…With things in reading, like other words, things I don’t know the meaning of, there’s like some words, the vocabulary words, and then [they come up] in my tests, and I’m like ‘oh! I know them now.”

We loved hearing how much Diya felt like A Grade Ahead has helped her, including the specific help she got during her product testing stages.

Her Mother, Monika commented, “She was part of a different program before coming here, and a lot of it had to do with the style of how you teach and what material is presented… I thought, when I looked at the material, that there was a lot more critical thinking as opposed to sitting there and memorizing a lot of the stuff, or just recalling math problems…Children grow, they memorize – they’re like sponges, you know. They’re able to just soak up all the information but [it’s important to] be able to translate that into understanding and to comprehend it, and to be able to verbalize that. I felt that when I came here and looked at the material, [it] would help her down the road, as opposed to where she was before.”
