"For the past six years, I have received services from Inner City Youth Tutoring, which has not only helped me academically but my parents financially. The rapport I developed with my Educational Enhancement Coaches (EEC) has improved my self-esteem and ability to advocate and communicate with my teachers. The tutoring I received from ICYT has allowed me to stay on task in class, and in some cases, explain methods in math to struggling classmates who were unable to understand the teacher's approach. Lastly, because of the work and dedication of my EEC's I have been able to maintain Honors and National Honor Society status while obtaining magna cum laude and making the dean's list for my dual enrollment in college courses taken during my last year; in high school."
