WHAT OUR STUDENTS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS SAY ABOUT US

I had low 70’s (in math), and ended up with high 80’s…with the help, I noticed I am not bad at math, I just needed different ways to look at it. At my homeschool, I couldn’t ask certain questions, but people here always explain it until you fully get it. That helped me grow as a person.

My son is a graduate of your program (2019-2020) and currently a top student in his Laurier co-op BBA program. He greatly benefited from the skills developed at Uchenna. His experience at Uchenna was back in the day when you had only a fraction of the resources that you do today. To prospective students/families: take advantage of this opportunity. It seems like the program is vastly improved… and it was already an amazing program years ago. Your student will definitely develop skills that will benefit them years later… a wise investment in their future.

Thanks so much Uchenna Academy.  My son really enjoyed you as teachers. Will keep in touch – he may still need to catch up on a couple of courses & the flexibility you offer works well for him.

LisaMother

I strongly recommend Uchenna Academy.  My teacher was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic & dedicated to her profession as well as the students she taught.  She provided a welcoming & inclusive environment.  In addition, she was very flexible & adapted her teaching methods and made accommodations with the students in mind.

My (university) math course is super easy, essentially review of functions and calculus, you prepared me well! I received 89% in my first year calculus course, I am happy with it!

GeraldUniversity Student (currently completing Business Administration at Laurier)

I began my teaching career at Uchenna Academy after graduating from teacher’s college.  It was at Uchenna that I was able to gain valuable experience in course development and small-group teaching, in a supportive and encouraging professional environment.

My son was quite unimpressed about the tutoring piece when we first signed up, but he has come to look forward to those sessions. They make him feel like he can be successful. Incredibly unlike him to ask for or accept help but you have been so supportive that he feels you both are people he can go to. I cannot thank you enough. Much of his difficulty with schoolwork relates to his relationship (or lack thereof) with his teachers. You have been encouraging, fair, clear in your expectations, positive and sensitive in your approach and he has benefited greatly. Thank you.

StephanieMother

Thank you so much for everything. I really can’t begin to explain how much you have changed me and helped my academic career

You guys helped a lot, I definitely couldn’t have done it without you guys.

Duanestudent (currently completing a teaching degree at York U.)

I must say, I’m impressed. You are absolutely correct. I enjoyed reading this (short story my son wrote) very much. Hats of to you guys. Doing such a wonderful job teaching the kids. I’m very happy with his progress academically. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for sharing this (short story my son wrote).  It made me laugh.  Surprised me actually – I didn’t know he could write so well.
