Americana Student Center

Success Stories from Satisfied Parents and Students

I received my report card yesterday and was excited to see that I had made first honors. Your efforts are one of the main reasons for my achievement. You showed me how to be more organized and that helped me a lot with my schoolwork. You have given me confidence in my ability to do the class work and pass the tests. Thank you for all you have done. You made the 6th grade a great year for me. - N.S., Garden City


Andy and Kerianne have made tremendous strides forward in both reading and math since they began instruction at Americana Student Center!  I love the proud smiles on their faces when their mastery certificates come home!  I'm confident the progress they've made at Americana Student Center is what keeps them propelled ahead in the classroom! - Mrs. S.I., Oceanside


Thank you so much for all of the help I received at Americana. I took a practice SAT “cold turkey” and didn’t do as well as I could have. After only a few sessions with the English tutor and the math tutor I learned not only how to study effectively for the test, but also how to strategically select the correct answer. From this I was able to raise my score around 300 points. I definitely think this improved score played a part in my acceptance to Vanderbilt University, Boston College and Tulane University.
Thanks again.                   ER, Cold Spring Harbor

Thank you for helping Jonathan prepare for his SAT's. I've enclosed a copy of his test score and analysis for your review. Jonathan's improvement after taking your course was truly remarkable. It exceeded my expectations and needless to say he is quite happy with his score. You can be sure his brother Michael will be seeing you in class! - Mr. A.G., Oceanside

Thank you and the teaching staff for all the help that you have given me over the past several years. I was recently accepted at my first choice, Columbia University, and will be starting there in September. - D.K., Rockville Centre.


It is with pleasure that I tell you that I have been accepted to Chaminade High School, which was the high school of my choice. I am writing to thank you and my tutor. Michele, for your patience and teaching. This was a big help in preparing me to take the Catholic High School Entrance Exam. Because of your help, I was familiar with the material and more confident.
Thank you again, and we will not hesitate to call you if I need additional tutoring.
Sincerely yours,       J.D., East Rockaway


I am writing to thank you and your tutors for the fantastic results with my son Kenny. He scored a 75 on the Math regents and an 80 in the class! I wish I had known about your center during the school year -- when Kenny was struggling with math I would have sent him to you then. September starts Kenny's senior year and if I feel he is having a problem, believe me I will be getting in touch with you! Again, my deepest thanks. - Mrs. A.M., Oceanside

My son is in the math honors class but he found some areas of the math to be very difficult and began to feel "down."  I'm a working mom and it was hard for me to find the time to help him.  Going to Americana Student Center has really smoothed the way for him.  He is much more confident in his math now.  - Mrs. T.K., Baldwin             


My daughter has shown excellent improvement in her reading since she started at Americana Student Center.  She is much more confident and self-assured and is eager to try new words.   She's better able to sound out words phonetically and recognizes many sight words too.  She can actually read short stories to us!  As she says: "It's fun to read!" - Mr. J.G., Oceanside

School has always been a challenge for my son, Andrew, for many reasons.  My challenge was to find a tutoring service that would make him want to learn.  I found that in Americana Student Center.  The adaptive learning environment is conductive to both learning and blowing off steam. Children have the ability to get a right answer and then immediately receive recognition for that success.   That's very important to a child and it makes him want to learn more!  I give my thanks to Nancy and her loving staff every time I go there.  - Mrs. D.L., Rockville Centre


Jimmy loves coming to Americana Student Center! Every day when he gets off his school bus he asks if he's going to Americana after school.  It's been a perfect match for him.  He sees himself improving immensely in his skills and is more eager to read now.  His confidence is way up.  He's sparked!  I'm so thrilled!  D.H., Rockville Centre                 


When we first enrolled the children we weren't sure how they would feel about it.  Now they really enjoy coming, especially as they see themselves advancing, each in their own individual reading program.  They love earning tokens and they especially like the positive and warm environment at Americana Student Center.  It was a very good choice! - Mrs. D.R., Freeport


Our son has advanced in school and has gained so much self-confidence since he started coming to Americana Student Center.  He loves the friendly environment and always says he has so much fun there.  I guess it's true that children learn best when they are having fun.  It certainly is true in Patrick's case!  Mrs. M.H., Valley Stream
