Student shares how her Check & Connect mentor helped her prepare for and pass her math and reading tests


"In eighth grade, I didn’t pass my reading or math, so I had to take it in high school. And because of her helping me, it supported me, and I passed both of them. She helped me a lot. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have passed. Nobody was willing to help me, or, like – I didn’t seek for help, and help didn’t come to me. But then because of Check & Connect and being connected with her, she helped me review the math test, she helped me with my writing skills, and she helped me with my reading. So in my sophomore year I passed both of them, and I was really happy, because of her help."
