“Individual U. is a remarkable institution. Dr. Rudin and the mentors rescued my son when he was suffering terribly at an Independent school. The mentors created a safe environment for him to heal, to learn to take intellectual risks and to celebrate his love of learning. Their flexibility in designing a specific curriculum for his interests , needs and passions combined with the mentors’ incredible patience, compassion and understanding allowed him re-discover the joy in his intellectual pusuits. The sound of his laughter when I pick him up at the end of a session tells me all I need to know.” — Appreciative Mother of an Independent School Student
