I have been at LDA - London Region for 3 years now and I have improved immensely. I was always the kid that struggled with school work and received 50’s-60’s with a few of 70’s. After all this progress, I am now earning grades that range between 70’s and 90’s. I have learned new study strategies, I’ve improved my writing skills and I have a better understanding of math concepts thanks to tutoring services here at LDA. I feel more confident in my learning.
