Student Success Stories
Tiara, Lone Star College, Green Point, TX
ALEKS changed my attitude towards mathematics. I wish I had it for all of my classes because this program is very effective and efficient. I no longer have to sit through lectures in a traditional classroom setting struggling to understand on the same level as every other student.
Sheila, Austin Community College, TX
I struggled with math all throughout high school. It was tough keeping up with a teacher who taught too quickly for me and who explained the concepts in a way I couldn’t understand. During my sophomore year, I failed my Algebra II math course. I was so frustrated – at that point, I hated math and I managed to avoid advancing in math for the rest of high school.
Jahath, Massasoit Community College, MA
I first started using ALEKS last spring as a youth mentor for Gateway to College. After seeing the amazing results with the students,I decided to enroll in an ALEKS algebra course myself to see if it could improve my abilities. The experience was electrifying; for the first time since elementary school I felt a genuine passion for learning math.
Rachel, Kent State University, OH
In high school I was the type of student who could easily scrape by with As and Bs. These grades rarely required studying outside of class and very little homework. But when I got to college, everything changed. My notions and expectations on what a college learning environment would provide were off and I, like many of my peers, took my time learning to balance my social and academic priorities.
Gloria, Lone Star College, North Harris, TX
I am 53 years old and I’m a college student. Math was so terrifying because so many things had changed from the time I graduated in 1979. Then came ALEKS. When I started to learn how to succeed in ALEKS, I became more confident in not only math, but my other classes as well. ALEKS continues to motivate and inspire me.
Elexia, Austin Community College, TX
I am a college freshman. I’m taking a developmental math course that uses the ALEKS program and I absolutely love it. In high school, I struggled with math and thought that I was always going to be bad at math … ALEKS gives you tools, examples, and never leaves you behind.
