    We have been with Task to Success for the last two years and continue to be impressed by the professionalism and quality of services provided by all staff members! I saw dramatic improvement in my child’s reading and confidence level after working with Task for only a few months. I strongly suggest anyone looking for a tutor to try Task to Success. They show a level of caring that you get from family while providing services expected from a well-run business!

    I have been with Desirée for about 4 to 5 years now. I originally came to her for math help in fifth grade. Before Desirée, I had a hard time with math, and continuously struggled to understand in the classroom. Now a freshman in high school, i am doing pretty well in math. I like knowing that i can go to Desirée when the content explained in school is confusing to me. I don’t go to her for just math, we work on any subject i may need help with. I have worked on things like Spanish, English, and World History. I love having designated time in each week where I know i can ask any questions about assignments and get a explanation that i will understand. I love how we will keep working at a problem until we find an answer that i can understand. Desirée is a great tutor and truly cares about your success in school, and your education in the future. She is someone who wants to help you succeed and guide you through the process. Desirée’ has helped me grow not only as a student but also as a person. She is a amazing person and tutor, and i am very happy that i was able to find her.

    After a long search for the best resources for our Son, we are so happy we found Task for Success. We are seeing great improvements in his core subject grades and Task also helped prepare for the ACT Test. We’ve had a great experience due to the staff and educators at Task. Desiree, Barbara, Kara and Zach are wonderful to work with. Thank you Task!
