Take a look at what our students and tutors are saying about the AARC!
"It was through the AARC that I learned how to make unlikely friends and lasting relationships with tutors, clients and program directors! Because of this, I was able to speak out in classes, go after jobs I wanted and make new acquaintances."
"Both my listening and communication skills have improved substantially over the past year and a half as a result of engaging with my clients."
"Public speaking is no longer as intimidating to me. I am a lot more comfortable in front of a large group of people."

"I know that I am truly never alone here at the AARC."
"What the AARC has taught me goes far beyond any diploma."
"They say the key to living a fulfilling life rests in finding that one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning — that one thing that pushes you to work harder, do more and be happier. For me, that thing is my job as an AARC tutor."
"I have learned the importance of time management, meeting deadlines and realized just how far that in-depth planning can take me."
"I learned to apply the same skills I gained from planning my sessions into planning my life."
"The AARC has forced me to grow in ways I never knew I needed and offered me more than I could ever give back."
