Founder, Executive Director, and Success Coach 

“When I was a first-generation, struggling freshman in college, my tutor became my mentor. I learned ways to receive all A’s at the college level, and I even graduated from college with honors! My tutor, Robin, changed the course of my life. Now that I have an opportunity to help others succeed, I want to pay it forward.”
