## Zeta- Testimonials

“MUS is one of the best things that happened to our family. My son was struggling through math at public school and getting left behind, would cry through homework and in the middle of 4th grade, we quit and brought him home. He finished Delta & ... Epsilon and is all caught up now. He doesn't cry anymore and can answer multiplication and division and fraction questions with ease. When we pulled him out, he couldn't do it at all. This past summer, he visited family back home, and made new friends. One of the new friends commented, "Caleb is so smart in math. He can answer any question". He is in 6th grade now and loving Zeta. Thank you MUS for building his self confidence and math confidence.” — Michelle
