Testimonials

“It allows me to learn what I should improve on and how I should improve on it throughout the year. It will help me throughout high school, college, and any other schools. This will also help me grow as a learner and grow as a person throughout my life.”

MARIO LEARNER

“I can attest to the effectiveness of what was implemented in their one-on-one sessions and conferences. My children received personalized, bespoke attention curated to their specific needs. They are applying the tools they learned in their college setting. My children are self-reliant and independently managing their lives and their education.”

PROUD PARENT OF A MARIO LEARNER

“My students have made even more progress and showed greater engagement with their learning. Students have commented that they wish all their teachers could give them a similar structure. Also, the framework provides the often-required data to show student progress, particularly to management and external agencies.”

FRANKIE GARBUTT – MARIO EDUCATOR

“The one-to-one sessions allow for an opening of another perspective into what you are currently going through in life and it really helps.”
