Never Too Old

Everyone at The Tutorial Center believes you’re never too old to learn something new or to try new things. Environmental Science and Arts instructor Jim Gunn illustrated that very attitude at 74 years young when he and his family tandem-parachuted from an airplane over Thanksgiving break. Here are a couple of images of Jim’s leap of faith, from 18,000 feet off the planet!

What we hear...


“[The student] has made significant gains in reading. Her MAP reading score in September was 156 and on the first percentile. We have just finished our spring testing and she is now on the 45th percentile with a score of 188. She is now performing at grade level. All around, she is much happier and confident. Her parents and I can see a big difference in attitude.”
