Learning Partners

"The Learning Partners program was an amazing resource for our entire family. It provided the structure and guidance to assist Matt in forming study habits that adapted to his learning style, not the other way around. Learning Partners was the perfect blend of adaptability and advice our son needed to help him become the successful student he is today."

Sharon Bryson, College Trustee, with son Matt '16, now enrolled at East Carolina in Business
