Hundreds of 5-star reviews of Parallel's award-winning service

"Success! - My teen's tutor has completely turned math around for him. He went from feeling like a total failure to being a confident student with much better grades. His tutor is relatable, relaxed, and can explain concepts to him in ways that make sense and give my teen a deeper fundamental understanding. The customer service is responsive and helpful."

"I just wanted to send you a quick note and tell you how much I am already enjoying working with Lacey. She has shared SO MANY resources and provided ideas for kiddos I was struggling to plan for.I have never worked with a virtual SLP before and was apprehensive, but, as usual, you have done AN AMAZING job solving problems with the best solution. Thanks for ALL you do!"

"Great overall value! - It was solid psych ed. evaluations work for both of my daughters. The staff was professional. The expectations were clear. The evaluation, follow up and thorough explanation was valuable. We have done this before several years back and doing it this time via Zoom is more efficient and still effective. The cost savings is appreciated as we have big college bills ahead of us. Thank you for the great work!"

Letter from Diana

As young as seven years old, I recognized I was not progressing at the pace of my fellow classmates. I vividly remember one of my peers proclaiming he had finished a Harry Potter novel as I struggled to read a picture book with just one simple sentence per page. This was just the first of many frustrating moments in the classroom growing up. Soon thereafter, I was diagnosed with severe Dyslexia and ADHD.

My parents worked tirelessly to get me the academic support that I needed. I was fortunate enough to have a team of personal cheerleaders helping me to build the skills and courage to overcome my challenges in the classroom. It was their encouragement and constant support that got me to where I am today. It was not until much later in life that I truly understood the significance of my learning difference and learned to advocate for myself.

I am one of the lucky ones.

In the United States, 1 in every 5 students struggle with a learning or thinking difference. Yet, support for these conditions today is confusing, expensive, fragmented and in many cases, inefficient. And that’s why we created Parallel.

On behalf of our team and the broader Parallel community, we welcome you to our family and the future of empowered learning.
