“Thank you, Sheila. I am very impressed that within such a short period of time, you two have connected so well and all things are moving in the right direction. I also heard the good news that he did well on the ACT in his first attempt without any preparation. J is very proud of himself. Thank you for your recommendation and encouragement. More importantly, really appreciate you boosting his confidence and make him happy about what he can do. Once again, thank you, Sheila!”
