Cameron Loved Science

Before he was a top researcher in neurobiology Cameron was a struggling student.

Cameron was doing great in his 7th-grade in-class science labs, but scoring very poorly on unit tests. Mrs. Nguyen was sure he knew the material, but his test scores just didn’t show it. She really wanted to help Cameron succeed.

Using Ascensus reports, Mrs. Nguyen learned that Cameron was reading at a 5th-grade level. Mrs. Nguyen worked with Cameron and the school’s tutoring center to improve his reading to grade level by the end of the year.
