    Our programs are proven to deliver results. We have assisted families since 1985; focused on parental involvement in the educational process. Our Students strive for continued growth and academic excellence. Just a few of the testimonials from past families are shared here:

    "My daughter Melissa found working with Mrs. Pettrone-Keber [Director of A B C Learn With Me] a very rewarding experience.  It gave her insight into many subject areas and has made her and exceptional student. I could go on for hours on how wonderful Melissa has done in school all because of her." - W. Shcneider

    "My daughter and I started working with Karen in 1999 when my daughter was in 1st grade. She had some learning differences and needed extra help to work with them and perform well in public school. Karen showed her and myself how to do this. We stuck with it, and now in fifth grade she is performing at a proficient level in her academics. She knows better how to handle situations in class that may have seemed confusing to her in the past. My experience with Karen and her program has been enlightening, educational for both of us. If you and your child know what to expect and handle it, you are in the best possible position in this ever-changing world. Karen and her programs will do this for you." - M.E. Quinlan

    "I worked with Mrs. Pettrone-Keber in a resource room setting. She is a very devoted teacher. If there was a child that was having trouble in reading, writing or math, she had the ability to make sure they could write or read, add or subtract. She is very creative and gave the children different ways of learning. Many of her students would not need resource room support as they went on in years. I feel very fortunate to work as a teacher aide with Mrs. Pettrone-Keber." - A. Russell

    PLEASE NOTE - an educational consultant acts as a mentor and is not a therapist or school counselor. Our focus is to assist the family with sound ideas for increasing individual, academic, and personal potential.
