When tutoring became ineffective, student reached her goals with one-on-one brain training
Name: Josie Attardo
LearningRx Center: Chattanooga, TN
Chief Concerns: lack of confidence with school, homework, and tests, poor strategies for studying and homework, average grades
Real-life Improvements: Increased confidence, improved grades, stronger studying and homework skills
LearningRx would like to give a huge “shout out” to national Student of the Year finalist and first runner up, Josie Attardo from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Before LearningRx, Josie lacked confidence in school: she struggled with tests, homework, and participating in class. Prior to LearningRx Josie had tried a lot of tutoring programs, but none of them were able to make lasting improvements. Her mom noticed that the tutor would be able to help in one or two areas, but that she would still struggle overall. Josie’s mom and dad weren’t sure where to turn. Her confidence was low and she found schooltime to be very stressful. Josie enrolled in a LearningRx brain training program and finally had the help she needed to succeed! Check out her video to hear more about her amazing results.
Josie’s trainer Jamelia nominated her for Student of the Year. She says, “Since day one of training, Josie showed determination and has achieved so many goals… On her final report card, she brought all her grades up to A’s. Through her excitement and astonishment, she shared this was her first time making all A’s on her report card.
“Josie had been attending LearningRx for four months before her training completely changed during the pandemic. She went from being in the center, face-to-face with her trainer 3 days a week to only being able to see her trainer via Zoom. Even though this change offered new difficulties for all LearningRx’s students, she did not shy away from the challenge. Regardless of her training being conducted in the center or from home, her effort remained great and she continued to notice many improvements.
“Working with Josie has been an extremely pleasant experience. She has not been anything less than a delight. I have enjoyed getting to know her and about her family, her school experiences, and her goals and aspirations. I am very proud of all her hard work and accomplishments and I know that she is proud of herself for the same reasons.”
Congratulations, Josie! We are so proud of you.
