My granddaughter has a learning challenge and although she has an IEP, we felt like her school was not sufficiently meeting her needs.  We heard about Challenging Opportunity Tutorial Services, from a member of our church and decided to give it a try.  From the first day, we could see Dr. Pertilla and her team, was going to be invested in our child's outcome, both academically and personally.  Her method of positivity really allowed our child to shine, with each session her confidence grew.  In just a couple of weeks we could see improvement in her work and her self-esteem. We are looking forward to being able to bring our child back.
