Dr. Winsome Benet – Founder/CEO
I don’t have enough thanks to give to each and everyone of you for the results I have been seeing in my son’s grades as well as his attitude towards his school work. Finally, he is at the point were he doesn’t mind working because of the grades that he has been receiving.
My son recently shared with me that he is not ashamed to attend classes as he was before. He said he knows the answers and he can participate with the class like the other students. He said to me that Fundamental Tools has that “special touch”.
As a struggling single mother, I recommend Fundamental Tools to anyone. It doesn’t cost me an “arm and a leg” and I’m able to afford it along with my other obligations.
I Recommend Fundamental Tools To Anyone
First, I would like to thank you and your staff of teachers for the magnificent job you have been doing with my daughter, Djahnel. When I presented my case to you I felt “hopeless”. Her grades were not on level and I feared the possibility that she would have to repeat this year. Thanks to her tutor, the flexible schedule and the materials that were used she was able to pull out of a “slump” maintain her grades and is ready to pass to the next grade!
I cannot say enough about Fundamental Tools, Inc. You all have been a blessing to me and my daughter.
I Would Like To Thank
Again, thank you for your advice at the beginning of the summer holiday regarding my son. He worked very hard over the summer with a teacher from his school and a private tutor and with different reading programs. He has now been back in school for 4 weeks and was just tested. He is reading 50 words per minute which puts him at satisfactory minus (less than 50 would give him a needs improvement grade with required family conference). Most people would be upset;

Most people would be upset; I was so excited. This is a seven year old who could literally not read in May. He is continuing to work with his tutor for two days per week and he reads to me for 20 minutes each night and then I read a chapter from The Magic Tree House series (he loves the series) to him. My hope is that by the end of the year that he will have had an enjoyable school year and will feel comfortable with the expectations for the grade level. Again, thank you.
Best regards, Kaye-Ann
I Was So Excited
I received a mailer advertising the services of Fundamental Tools, Inc. a little over a year ago. My son, a high school freshman at that time, was having some trouble in English, particularly with reading comprehension. I figured I’d try the number on the advert and, after speaking with Dr. Bennett, decided to enroll my son in the program. He worked with Dr. Dwyer of Fundamental Tools. Dr. Dwyer is a retired English teacher and is just wonderful. With his help, my son was able to earn an “A” in English for the year and saw his reading comprehension test scores improve. Dr. Dwyer has been much more than just a tutor to my son; he’s been a grandfather figure, mentor, and friend.
My initial experience with Fundamental Tools has been very satisfactory. I presently have two of my boys enrolled there. The tutoring helps and the staff at Fundamental Tools are very accommodating with regards scheduling/timeslots. I cannot recommend them enough.
The Tutoring Helps
My daughter is a high-functioning autistic child. For her, reading is challenging. I knew that Dr. Bennett ran a non-profit that provided capable instructors and a safe venue for practice and learning, so I signed my daughter up for sessions. Malcolm, the tutor to whom my daughter was assigned, worked patiently with my child. My daughter found the material and sessions engaging and was eager to attend class; sometimes going so far as to interrupt my sleep (I work as a night nurse) to ensure that we would be on time. The sessions were beneficial and my child reads a little more easily now and with much more confidence.
Dr. Bennett and her staff at Fundamental Tools, Inc. provide a valuable service to the local community and I would recommend the organization to any parent of a struggling learner in the community.
