from Yukon High School
I was worried it may have been boring, but I've never laughed, cried so hard and learned at the same time in a fun way. I liked how you incorporated your family in with it. It made it more real. It gave me that little push of inspiration to get involved and help others too.

Steve Glazier
from Northern Oklahoma College Enid, OK
It has been my experience adults can tell students to study, take a practice test blah blah blah. Without motivation they don't take it seriously. You not only give good ideas, but also the motivation/enthusiasm needed to begin studying. To keep (290) high school Juniors and Seniors attention without any trouble/commotion is without a doubt impress

from Seminole State College Seminole, OK
