It all started with a knock on my door in the evening this last summer. My husband and I were trying to help my son Tyler with his math in summer school. This young lady named Erin started telling me about these new books that could help my children in school.
I let her in and said she came at a good time because we were trying to help my son and could not figure out this math problem.
She came to the table and showed us the math books and how they worked. She even helped my son find the right page for what he was doing.
I was immediately hooked. My husband and I have struggled to help my son for the past year with little cooperation from teachers and tutors. My husband and I were great students in school and were just blown away at the way things are different today. We would stay up late trying to help him with his homework, just to walk away frustrated that we could not help. My son had to go to summer school to even pass the 7th grade. It was very disheartening to watch him struggle. I had turned myself inside out taking my son back up to school for help after hours and getting him tutors, just to have him fail anyway. I thought there was nothing that could be done. That my son’s future was sealed. That he was going to fail and there was nothing I could do about it.
Since buying the math books, my son has an A- in the class. He likes math and has had no problems doing his work. He doesn't even ask me to help him anymore. If he does have a question, we pull out the book, find the right page, and he follows the steps and can do the work on his own. WHAT A RELIEF.
Having these books has given him the confidence he didn't have before. There is no more arguing that we are telling him the wrong way and no more frustration trying to find someone to help him. I love it. This has made my home a more pleasant place in the evenings when homework is done. I'm so grateful I was home that night to open my door to Erin. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH SOUTHWESTERN ADVANTAGE.
