Thank you very much. The girls really enjoyed the week of learning, Empowered Learning with the electives in Anime and Drama really worked for my kids. By the end of the week they learned some wonderful study skills and organizational skills that have not been taught to them in school previously. Teresa and Mary both are re-arranging their rooms to fit their desks according to the guidelines you suggested to them. Apparently the great idea I had had a long time ago of having their desks under a window in our busy living room wasn't too conducive to studying!
They are organizing it all by themselves and come home armed with a lot of ideas. RC was wonderful with both girls, Mary Grace took a special liking to him and learned a lot from his anime class. He taught her a lot about drawing techniques. Ryan was also really good with the girls and they learned a lot from him as well.
Our children are enrolled in Summer '08 at Rockville Campus for Small Group Tutoring They were very vocal about quality of Mr. Colin's Math tutoring. The younger one said "Gosh, I never knew I could learn so much. This is way faster compared to the speed at school." The older one said "Compared to Johns Hopkins's CTY I would like to learn from Mr. Colin. Teaching here is very customized, based on your needs and speed.
YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did the distance--feel reallygood about it!
Hannah and Miya had a great time with RC yesterday and Hannah was actually trying to get out of going to her tennis camp this afternoon so she and Miya could work more with him!
Thank you so much for accommodating Hannah and for recognizing that she and Miya would like to do activities together. I very much appreciate your efforts on their behalf.
My name is Jannifer and I am writing this letter of appreciation to Dr. Pat Webbink and the instructors at the Enrichment Centers, Inc. because I appreciate all of the support that my family has received from them over the last six years. I am a mother with six children; four of my children decided to pursue a college education after high school. Since 2002, three of those children have been under the tutelage of the Enrichment Centers, Inc. The oldest of the four children would have sought instruction from the Center had I known of its existence when the child needed it in 2000 and 2001.
Fortunately, I learned of the Enrichment Centers, Inc. in time for the 2nd child to benefit while in college. My children have had tutoring sessions in the subjects of Algebra, Calculus, and Biology over the last six years. In each every case, the tutors provided were knowledgeable in their field of study, extremely capable in the art of teaching, flexible in the dates, hours and places where they could meet for the tutoring sessions, and reasonable in their prices. The tutors met with my children at the Center’s Hyattsville location, at the library in my neighborhood in Prince Georges County Maryland, at a library located in Montgomery County, and in one of my child’s dormitory on the campus of University of Maryland. The level of service and quality of instruction has been exemplary. The Center has always been available and willing to help me whenever I called upon it. Once again, I want to thank Dr. Webbink and her staff for the wonderful support that I have received from the Enrichment Center. I look forward to continuing to call upon the Enrichment Center and ensure all of my children complete their college education.
I would like to commend you and your team for the work that you do. You are great people and I want to thank you for sending me AFRAH ADIM to be my son’s tutor. She is working with my son in just about every subject and is absolutely wonderful. She is also very professional. A definite plus is that she speaks Arabic which makes it much easier for me to communicate with her in regards to my son. Afrah is great!! Thank you. I really appreciate all of you.
My daughter had a great time at The Enrichment Centers. Your teaching staff is very pleasant and did an excellent job at educating her. She had lots of laughs and the teacher did great science experiments with the kids. You team is very pleasant to meet and greet.
I wanted to let you know that your Anime & Manga class was very well received by our students. One mother would like her daughter to continue with the class privately. Many thanks.
I am writing to commend you on the excellent tutoring services my 9th grade son is receiving.
After a successful week of tutoring this summer, my son’s math aptitude had increased from 5th to 9th grade level. This is due to the dedication and commitment to service demonstrated by Mr. Tim Gutman, his personal tutor. Recently, my son was given the opportunity to work with the Enrichment Center again this school year through the Maryland Choices program. The amazing thing is my son requested Tim, and he was available.
Since, my son has increased his Math test scores and is receiving an A this quarter. Tim’s easy going nature and love of the content subject area is evident in the way he presents himself. He is very personable and capable of teaching shortcuts for solving difficult equations. My son developed a genuine regard for Tim and is enjoying Math.
In closing, I simply want to thank this team for a job well done!
I have nothing but positive feedback from the students and the parents. Genell was wonderful. She came to each class prepared and ready for this large group. She made the class interesting and modified where needed for all ages 5-11. She was a pleasure to work with.
Thank you Enrichment Centers!
I look forward to working with you again.
My son, Conor, and all the kids in the class absolutely love Japanese in our after-school class at North Bethesda!
Erica was very happy and expressed a desire to come back next summer. Every summer it is my intent to work with Erica with Math and Reading and it never happens -- I was especially satisfied that she worked on math, reading and writing skills.
We have experienced several math camps throughout the years, and unfortunately our experience has been less than satisfactory. Armen was simply a pleasure, as were all of the college students with whom she interacted. It was a joy to see the smile on my daughter's face everyday when I picked her up and the confidence in her voice when we reviewed what topics she had covered that day. She enjoyed her teachers so much that it was very important to her that we bring doughnuts on the last day for her teachers, Krispy Creme.
Your flexibility regarding payment is reflective of teachers that interacted with my daughter. And let me say that she had a wonderful experience. She found the tutors to be both friendly and intelligent, and she feels that she benefited from attendance. I look forward to enrolling her next year.
Thank you for providing my princess with a truly enriching math experience.
I want to thank you for working with me with regard to special arrangements. Your flexibility is reflective of teachers that interacted with Briaun. And let me say that she had a wonderful experience. She found the tutors to be both friendly and intelligent, and she feels that she benefited from attendance. I look forward to enrolling her next year. Thank you again for your cooperation and understanding.
I was very excited to find the Enrichment Centers' Creative Arts program for my granddaughters this summer. Twelve-year old T and ten-year old C were spending several weeks with me and although they wanted it to be all "free time," I insisted they sign up for some program for part of their visit. Neither child wanted to go to a typical day camp or athletic program, but they were interested in doing dance, drama, art, and similar activities.
When I enrolled them, T indicated on her application that she wanted to learn hip-hop dance and to have an opportunity to be a counselor-in-training. C also was interested in dance and drama as well as creative writing.
On the first day, both girls were shy and apprehensive, but they came home at the end of the day bursting with enthusiasm! After several days, both of them began asking me to extend their enrollment. When I hesitated, C actually offered to give up some of the new school clothes I normally buy her in exchange for additional time at the Enrichment Centers' program.
Both girls got all of what they asked for and more. T was thrilled to spend lots of time doing hip-hop as well as being assigned to help with younger children. C got more instruction and practice on flute in a few weeks than what she got in the entire last school year. And both of them learned lots of new things without even realizing it.
What made this program especially good for them was that it was small, had lots of excellent and enthusiastic staff, and it was designed to work with each child's individual interests, talents and needs. T and C are already talking about returning next summer, for as many weeks as possible. I am so glad that I found the Enrichment Centers for my granddaughters.
Both girls continue to be very excited and enthusiastic about their programs, and both I and their mother are very happy that they are getting so much from it and that they're enjoying it at the Rockville center. The girls love your program.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her teachers and the time spent learning old and new things! Again thank you.
This letter will provide you with the information gathered at the Supplemental Education Services (SES) site visit conducted at Lewisdale Elementary on April 28, 2007. We appreciate the opportunity to review the implementation of The Enrichment Center in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS), including those areas required by the NO Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). During the site visit, both the logistical operation and the implementation of the academic program were observed. Please see the attachment with comprehensive notes from the meeting. The following commendations should be noted:
• Tutor was well prepared and started the lessons promptly or ahead of time. All documentation was available for review and accurate as to requirements listed in RFQ.
• The adults working in the Enrichment Center seemed to care genuinely about the children and the progress they were making.
• Home visits were conducted to communicate with the parents as needed.

My daughter has been partcipating in the Science class on Mondays at Burning Tree Elementary School all year with Dr. Joel Cohen. She has loved it! The class is interesting and topics are broad. Dr. Cohen has done a nice job with such a young-aged group of children to build a life-long interest in science! He began the class with simple concepts and now they are learning the life-cycle of a caterpillar/butterfly. She has come home every week discussing in great detail the topic of the day and has frequently referred to her learnings at a later time.
Thank you to you and the program and a great thanks to Dr. Cohen for keeping the class interesting and fun!
The French instructor is wonderful! Things are going well and the kids are really enjoying the class.

Kudos to Dr. Pat Webbink and all the hard work The Enrichment Centers does to benefit the children at the Oneness-Family School! The Enrichment Center has been providing us with various after school enrichment classes for about two years. We have had the privilege of having Chess, Future Einsteins, and just recently Hip-hop programs at our school. The children adore the wonderful instructors including Holly, the Hip-Hop instructor. The children couldn't stop raving about how wonderful she was! I have personally had the opportunity to observe a few sessions of the different classes. I was impressed by the nurturing quality the instructors had with all the students. We are all looking forward to another great year of classes with The Enrichment Centers!
Finding a remediation program for the summer daytime hours where my daughter can have a social and athletic outlet in addition to academics is the trick. She really enjoyed her weeks with your program last year. I regretted not having enrolled her longer.

You really broke the log jam in his ability to get his thoughts on paper!" My son, Evan, spent a week with you last summer working on his writing skills. This year, he is getting straight As in English (and actually in everything) and his teachers say they now have to sometimes tell him to write less, when his problem had always been not being able to write anything. So thanks!

Thank you, staff of The Enrichment Centers, for your outstanding instructors who have provided innovative classes in our after-school programs at Pyle Middle School and Burning Tree Elementary School. For the past two years, your teachers have been able to engage and keep the interest of 'tweens and teens for clubs such as Jewelry Making, Sign Language, Anime, Art and Drawing, Future Einsteins, and Empowered Learning. The Enrichment Centers has always been attentive to the needs of the children, and we have been pleased to recommend you to many other schools in the area. In addition to serving as a vital participant in our program, we have been able to offer scholarships to some students because of the generosity of the Enrichment Centers. We are hoping to adopt your Magic, Science Alive, and Foreign Language classes in the near future.
Your tutor was very pleasant, and caught Mary up in her Spanish and math just as we needed. I greatly appreciate your sending a tutor under such short notice. Mary is doing well at her new school, and having a tutor at the beginning made a huge difference. I would certainly recommend you to others, and call you in the future if Mary once again needed help.
"I want to thank The Enrichment Centers so much for the tutoring my son received. He was able to increase his SAT math score by 60 points! Laura, his tutor, was wonderful! We were pleased during the process and are certainly pleased with the results. We appreciate the flexibility your center offered in scheduling to make the tutoring sessions fit with our busy schedule. I would recommend your center highly!"
Wanted to let you know that our daughter, Patrique, had a rich one-week experience in your jump start program at the Rockville location. We'llbe back next summer.

I am no longer disturbed by a lack of knowledge in Spanish class. I am able to focus on future successes. I found a Spanish for Dummies 2nd Edition at MLK library. It’s easy to follow along at a graduate pace. Thank you for helping me. I will be in touch soon. “Love to my Tutor.”
