Feedback and Testimonials

The Davis programme really helped me. In a week, it helped me enough that I could get into the school of my dreams!

I am getting much higher scores in my comprehension and writing stories. I am feeling much more confident and enjoying it more. Before, I did not want to do the comprehension but now I do, because it's easier for me.

When I am reading, the words aren't a blank anymore.

When I write stories I can use vivid adjectives and get a more complex story, like this one I wrote recently:


The rain was slashing down spitefully in Max's stinging eyes as he trudged to the wild, overgrown churchyard. Angry Zeus was throwing down vicious bolts of lightning from the bleak clouds above.

Finally he got to the mysterious, dilapidated yard where there was an abundance of sinister graves. Suddenly he heard a bewildering howl and felt petrified. What was it? Was it a wild dog? Was it a vicious wolf?

He calmed his mind and looked above him. What he saw was breathtaking... he saw a cluster of shooting stars flying through the vast ebony sky, and the enormous pearl moon illuminating the barren landscape.

When he stepped into the ancient church the first thing his eager eyes settled on was a torn maroon tapestry which he thought told the story of the Three Wise Men. Out of the corner of his eye he saw a graceful fox creeping up to him. Max felt wary but, unexpectedly, the fox nudged him benevolently.
