  Transcript:

When we first called Quantum Prep we thought we'd be getting very targeted math tutoring but we've ended up with a life coach in a way for Jacob. I feel like there's someone who's a friend and almost like a big brother and a motivator and a teacher simultaneously.

My name is Patricia Berman and I'm the mother of Jacob Engelstad who's 17 years old and attends Prospect Hill Academy Charter School in Cambridge Massachusetts.

He'd been struggling for a few years with numbers and with some other small aspects of his learning. He began to see himself as someone incapable of learning math and sort of gave up on trying. At this point I think that the outside help that we've sought from Quantum Prep isn't so much to fill in a gap, but to enhance him as a learner.

He himself wanted to have math tutoring toward the sats because he didn't like the score he got on his psat’s, it was quite low. It didn't seem to reflect his capacities. But were more interested frankly in helping him to develop himself as somebody who actually is a math learner, to think deeply, to think in complex ways about the disciplines where hes been struggling.

So Jacob's been working with Quantum Prep for about half a year, it was really the entire spring semester, the outcome I think has been terrific, the benchmark was to increase his math score by a factor of x which he did do, but moreover he really enjoys learning.

Quantum Prep offers not just a targeted way of tutoring, but an entry into a intellectual universe that's very high level, very broad, and that's something that has really cultivated Jacob. We see nothing but improvement and really really positive outcomes at this point.
