    Huy is such a polite and respectful student. He greets me when he comes in every day and also says goodbye before he leaves. He continually thanks me for teaching him.

When Huy is struggling with the calculus material, he attends tutoring to get help, which I respect as an educator. Huy is a quiet student, so he doesn't often get the positive attention that he deserves! He is a joy to teach! - Michelle Nelsen
