About: About


My son was struggling in his second semester in college and at risk of being placed on academic probation. 

Dr. DiBenedetto provided support, encouragement, understanding, and taught him educational skills necessary to work independently in a college setting. After several sessions we saw a turnaround in our son’s academic work.  His grades began to improve by setting attainable goals and by time management of his studies. Our son continued to improve his grades and graduated from his university with a 3.4 G.P.A. He later went on to earn a master’s degree in business applying the same skills that Dr. DiBenedetto taught him in his undergraduate years. While this is the first time I am writing a testimonial, it is written from the heart. My son is really doing well and I will always be grateful for the work Dr. D. did with him!

Dr. DiBenedetto’s services helped our son learn to succeed!
