This section is one of our favorites. Check out all the amazing things our tutees have done over the semesters! These kids are really important to us and to their tutors, so we make sure they have lots of fun while learning about math, reading, writing, art, geography, current events, the environment, culture and much, much more.
We love to show off the wonderful work our kids have done in strengthening their creative skills. Take a look at some stories in the Author's Corner below!

Alien and Robot Fight
There were aliens and robots on the moon. They both wanted to live on the moon, so the alien king, Catman, challenged the robots to a race. The king picked the fastest alien, Dogman, to represent the aliens because he could pick up eight cars at the same time. The fastest robot, Superman, could pick up seven hundred and seventy seven cars, run faster than five trucks, and jump higher than seven buildings. The race started, but Dogman fell and Superman won. The aliens and robots talked and they got together and lived on the moon for one thousand years.
