Dear Academic Approach Families & Colleagues:
We are excited to share some good news. Better Magazine, a Chicagoland publication, has named Academic Approach the BEST Chicagoland tutoring and test-preparation company! It’s an honor to be mentioned along with Northwestern University, Francis W. Parker, The Cove School, Walter Payton College Prep, and other impressive institutions in Better’s ranked catalogue of Chicagoland’s leading education organizations.
This award is the result of a voting process—one that many of you participated in. And so let me first express our gratitude to you. We are so appreciative of our community’s consistent support. Thank you!
This “Best of” award is, essentially, a reflection of our students and their families—specifically, their commitment to academic achievement and unwillingness to quit, especially in the face of age-old and new adversities this past year. We’ve been engaged in this work long enough to know: we are only as successful as our students. And success this year has been a precarious achievement.
We extend our thanks to Better Magazine and, of course, to you–our students, families, and colleagues. This “Best of” award inspires us to work harder for you and to commit, especially during this school year, to the continuous improvement and expansion of our work, our service, and our impact.
Matthew Pietrafetta, Ph.D., Founder & CEO
