Tekeshia Williams

Houston, TX

#1 Apr 26, 2010
my name is Tekeshia Williams, a representative of your company visited my home about two months ago.At this time I was in route to a very important doctors appointment when she asked for a moment of my time. I stated that I was in a hurry and she said that it would only take a moment. When she stated that I could get free tutoring for my children, I thought it would be worth my time to listen,so I did.She stated that my kids school was on a her list,and since i was a low income parent that my kids qualified for the program and would be getting the equipment within a month.She also stated that if I didnt recieve it by then that I should call the number..888)316-1903.I have left many messages at this number and have not even recieved a returned call.This upsets me because as I explained to her I was in route to an appointment that I had to end up rescheduling.I thought that atleast it would be worth it if my kids could get the help that they needed.But I have heard nothing nor havemy kids recieved any help,so I am now asking for yor help in this matter.My kids are really struggling in math and science and I feel like someone somewhere is collectng government funding and not doing what they are supposed to be doing with the money because our kids are still struggling,and all these people are doing is waisting our time.I am a very upset parent looking for answers.Please help us

Please call your school district and ask why your child has not been assigned to the provider you requested. I assure you we would be tutoring your child if the district assigned them. Please see our website and call the contact number and ask for me, I will be happy to help you.

Sincerely,

I was thinking of joining and i was reading all of these comments and see that almost everyone is having the same problems. Is it a good idea for me to join or not? When you say that you got dropped did they come and take all of the things away like the phone and laptop or what happened? They said they would come see me every 2 weeks, did they come to you? Please comment back and i will come and check in.
Thank you

I am currently in the program and do far i think it is pretty cool. The tutoring is very easy and i already received my free phone and free laptop. The only problem i am having is that i don't know what to do know or where to go.

I recently transfered my loan to a Check Into Cash title loan on Broadway Houston, Tx in hopes to bring the loan down faster and lowering the interest rate along the way.A good thing yes but you got to read the contract well and ask questions. Some of the terminolgy on the contract is misleading...hard to undertsand, so to get to the point I made the payment late 15 days for personal reasons. Well I explained to the manager the situation and maitained contact.The problem was I failed to notice I would be charged a $175 late fee. the contract says 5% of the payment not the principle (payment/principle) are these the same thing in legal terms? I guess it depends. They were'nt sure themselves. Yet their Texas regioanl manager stands behind their employees lack of knowledge and abilities to convey this information. Do youself a favor think about real hard if you need their services.

Answer:

Hi Tyqauisha: Great to hear you are excited about our program. We are very proud of it because we hear from parents every day how well it works and how much it has helped students improve their grades and test scores. At the moment we provide tutoring only in reading but if you would like to participate please talk with your school counselor or supplemental educational services facilitator.

Hi Velyncia: It looks like you were dropped from our program by your school district for reasons outside of our control. We suggest if you'd like more information that you ask your school counselor or supplemental educational services facilitator. We'd love to have you back.

Hi Happiness and Leo: Not sure why you would have been dropped but please call our customer service team at 1 (888) 316-1903 so that with a little more information we can look up your status and clarify the situation.

Hi Carlos: We care about every student and prospective student. While we help parents complete and submit enrollment forms we depend on school districts to assign students to us so that we can start them in the program. Once a student is assigned to our program we contact them immediately so It sounds like you may not have been assigned to our program by your school district. We suggest if you'd like to know where you are in the process that you ask your school counselor or supplemental educational services facilitator.

Thanks and have a great day,

do i complete the program once i get 200 points or do you keep going? I already finished getting the points over the phone(with the WORKBOOKS) and recieved a tablet e-reader. The paper i was given along with it said that it is used for the second portion of the program but when i log on to "rapid readers"and do lessons, i dont gain power points and stay at the 200 mark.
