I think that any school with this many warning flags about demeaning treatment of teenage students, an instructor placing his appetite over what the students need to be focusing on, and tests being given so that they are easy, rather than challenging, well Longhorn Driving School sounds to be much worse than Mack Brown is as a sideline game day coach of the other Longhorns in Austin who have been messing up big time for two years now.

This is the worst driving school so please dont waste your money. So I had my spouse enrolled for the auto driving training with Mike from this school. This guy is so irresponsible and a huge slacker that for a 4 course driving class for my spouse he has extended the training and its still going on. He will keep on postponing the dates and he is a man full of excuses like

1. Oh today my wife is sick
2. Oh today my someone from my family demised
3. Oh today I lost my cellphone
4. Oh today I am overbooked
5. Oh this day I have to attend a funeral.

These are just few of his excuses that I have faced. He is utterly irresponsible, no jest of teaching and the worst trainer and driving school.

Please please dont waste your money!!!!

My son has been attending Growing Imaginations since he was 2. He is now 5 and will be entering kindergarten in the fall. His father and I have been nothing but happy with this learning center. They are very caring, nurturing and patient with our very rambunctious boy! In fact, I like the staff so much I hire one of the teachers to babysit on the weekends on occasion. The facilities are clean, the prices are moderate and the children always seem happy. I will miss seeing the faces of the staff when my son goes to kindergarten.

My wife and I have two kids in Growing Imaginations - a 2 year old girl, and a 4 year old boy. Both kids like their teachers. The owner runs an efficient Austin day care that doesn't let the kids run wild, or the opposite, too much structure! Before choosing Growing Imaginations daycare in south Austin, my wife and I visited 7 different day care centers. We both liked Growing Imaginations the most. Also we liked that no violations were listed for them with the state of Texas database on day cares. Oh, and our two year girl is speaking various Spanish words. My wife and I are Gringos so she's not picking up the language from us!

My boy went to Town & Country Montessori School when he was four year old. During his short term, he learned so much on being a responsible citizen, how to prep himself for the next level of public education and the love of learning which can be fun too. He truly enjoyed his days at this school. The principal and teachers are caring, polite and always have the children well being first at heart.

My kids have been going to Kids R Kids on Lakeline in Cedar Park and they love it. The teachers are so loving and caring my girls sometimes don't even want to leave at the end of the day. They have learned so much: colors, shapes, respect, patience and many other important tools that I know will help them when they go to kindergarten. I haven't seen one lazy person at this location and the interaction they give my child is nothing but positive. I guess there are just people in this world that are unhappy with everything? Not this parent!

This teacher was the only reason why I passed my Calculus class at UT. I had a 70 on one test, and then a 50 in the next.... before i met Corinne, and I was at a point where I had no hope. But no, Corinne defied my all my expectations for my future hope in calculus. Corinne is not only great with math, but she's great at explaining the problems. So can dominate any word problems(any related rate problems, for you calculus students), anything....maybe because she has a degree in english as well. She also does the problem for you. I find that better personally, because even though she does the problem, she explains it... and if you stop and ask why she did a certain step, she be glad to answer. but all in all, if you have any doubts about asking for a tutor, Corinne is where the money is well spent.

Honestly i was thinking it was a good idea to send my child there because I was able to see them on the camera. Wrong, The teachers are lazy and did not play with my infant. They did not answer my questions when I was asking why she was not engaging with the infants. The direct , MS SUSAN is HORRIBLE. She is fake, Honestly i would have given the school at least 3 stars if it was not for her. She smiles to get the business then when she has your money she does not care. She would not answer my questions nor take my calls. This is the Kids r Kids on N. Lake Line. I have not tried another one , nor will I . I suggest saving your money and finding a great daycare.

I first became acquainted with Corinne when my daughter was struggling with College Algebra. I was given Corinne's contact info by someone who had been tutored by her at UT. Corinne worked with my daughter twice a week for the remainder of the semester, including intense review sessions before tests. My daughter's grade went from a C to an A! And what's more, my daughter now has a firm grasp of the concepts and has applied them in other college math courses. When my son was a sophomore in high school, he was enrolled in AP Geometry, but wanted to get ahead in math so he signed up for Algebra II through UT correspondence. I hired Corinne to teach him the entire course and he made an A! Then, the following year, when he was in AP Pre-Cal, she helped him prepare for tests. She even prepped him for the SAT. Corinne's rates are very reasonable in my opinion and she always tries to accommodate scheduling conflicts. Anyone who wants to fully grasp math and make a good grade, should call Corinne for help. She's the best.

Corinne was able to explain BC in ways my teacher was unable to and she was able to clarify topics in which I had trouble with really easily. She is a great tutor and I strongly recommend her.
