The Stern Center means a lot to me. It is because of the work they do that I am a reader today. Before going to the Stern Center, I struggled with reading and my mind was focused on the fact that I couldn't do it- that it was impossible. Being tutored at the Stern Center not only improved my reading skills tremendously but it also changed that mindset. With the help of my incredible tutor, I was able to build confidence in my learning.
