GRADES IMPROVE FROM C’s to A’s
“In previous years my son would complain about going to school. Rayna and her team were able to take the information that he needed to learn and make it relevant and interesting by teaching him in different types of ways; traditional and innovative. My child has become more successful in class, with much higher grades, because the ILC team made learning fun and interesting for my son. Thank you to Rayna and ILC where their passion for learning rubs off on all the kids they teach!”

EMPOWERED STUDENTS = INDEPENDENT LEARNERS
"Our son felt you were very kind and fair. He also felt he was given plenty of room to do his own things while you provided guidance along the way and listened to his ideas. He enjoyed your sense of humor and learning new things from you, which you must have spent a lot of time researching in your own time. As a parent, I felt that you were always positive in your attitude and never showed any discouragement when things were hectic. You always kept an open mind to my suggestions and provided honest opinions of my child."

HIGHER LEARNING: GOOD GRADES AND SO MUCH MORE
"Rayna is an exceptional educator. She has the gift of being able to meet your child at the point they are in their Learning. She does not teach from a script but adapts the delivery of the information so that your child is able to receive the maximum benefit. If your child is unable to demonstrate their Learning in conventional methods, she allows them to show it in a way that the child feels successful and not segregated from the other students. Rayna challenges your child to become the best they can be and your child believes they can. With this belief success is attained. She is a true educator as you can see the joy she gets from seeing children develop and achieve success in their educational journey. I want to thank you so much for the assessment you completed for our son. You have given us a huge gift that will have long lasting positive consequences."

LEARNING ISN’T A DRAG ANYMORE!
“The ILC team helps kids with what they need in school & makes them be able to be their best. They make everything fun. Thanks for really seeing ME! Wish I could take Rayna, with me.”

CHILD COACHING MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!!
“Before I met Rayna I felt bad about myself. I was really nervous when meeting new people, and didn’t know how to act. I worried about saying the wrong things and that people wouldn’t like me. I also thought that I hurt peoples feeling when I didn’t act proper. Sometimes I wouldn’t answer questions or I would turn around when I was spoken to.
After I met Rayna she taught me the importance of body language, how to make eye contact and how to use a louder voice. We went people watching at the mall and saw different body language, I also practiced asking for things in a shop, which I found hard to do. Rayna gave me business cards to help with conversation and I was able to practice with my family. We also talked a lot about all the things that I was good at. I am able to talk to adults much better now and I don’t feel as awkward. I try to remember the tips that Rayna taught me when I’m meeting new people.
The things I did with her were like fun activities; we built things out of Lego, practiced conversation and asking each other questions, watched different videos, made posters and went shopping. I always liked going to see Rayna. Sometimes I would get homework but it wasn’t very hard. Now I feel much better about myself and I know that I’m good at a lot of things.”

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
"I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation the other night on "Unlocking The Secrets of the 21st Century Classroom". I thought that you were so well prepared and very knowledgeable. I walked away feeling more in control of my son's education, and delighted to know that we as parents do have a say as to how our children are being taught. Thank you again for your time and insight. I will definitely recommend you to my friends."

"I'm glad I attended the “Unlocking the Secrets” presentation because it gave me an understanding of what teachers are talking about and I feel like I know how I can support the teacher and my daughter’s learning.”
