“I want to help every Scholar realize that they are capable of high achievement in high school, college, and beyond.”

Emmy reflects on her experience tutoring Scholars:

I have really enjoyed getting to know the College Success Academy Scholars, tutoring them, and being somebody they can look up to. Highlights from my CSA experience have been times when I’ve been able to personally connect with Scholars. One moment in particular was when I was tutoring a Scholar who was having trouble with a difficult math concept. It was great to see a difficult concept suddenly become easy for him when everything finally clicked.

Academically, I help reinforce concepts that Scholars learn in school and provide guidance on their daily homework. However, above that, I feel that through CSA I am able to be a person that believes in the potential of each Scholar. The first step to success is to believe that it’s possible, and I want to help every Scholar realize that they are capable of high achievement in high school, college, and beyond.

The College Success Academy provides Scholars with the resources and opportunity to make their dream to go to college a reality. Through CSA’s unique partnership with local colleges and universities, college students work directly with Scholars to provide both academic support and positive influence.
