While we could (and have in the past) have dozens, if not hundreds, of quotes here, we want to be VERY CLEAR! This is NOT ABOUT US!
This is all about our students and their families. We simply helped point them in the right direction and see that they could achieve their goals of success!
Sooooo, we took all but a few of our favorite ones down. If you want more, just let us know. We can send them your way.
WE LOVE WIRED MINDS BECAUSE THEY BUILD CHILDREN'S CONFIDENCE SO THEY CAN WORK TO THEIR HIGHEST POTENTIAL !!! NO ONE TEACHES LIKE WIRED MINDS !!!!! - M.B.

We are so proud of our daughter! Ashley had been carrying a D in Algebra for almost the entire school year. We enrolled her in Wired Minds and can not believe her progress! She has since brought home grades of a 99 and a 102! Not only has she raised her overall grade to a high C, but her confidence is back as well! We are confident she will have a B by the end of the year! We are so proud of her!
Blair had been struggling in math. Her confidence was gone, and she had basically given up on even trying. I enrolled Blair in Wired Minds Tutoring. She went from making "F’s" to making "A's" & "B's". She has seen that she has the ability to do anything. She has confidence now not only in math, but really in all she is doing! - Blair's mom
My son is currently in the 3rd grade. He has been struggling with reading comprehension. I became very concerned about his difficulties when his MAP results indicated that he was reading on a 1st grade level. I knew it was time for additional intervention so I enrolled him for tutoring at Wired Minds in January 2012. My son was initially apprehensive about have to go to a tutor but when he met Brook and Barry they immediately put him at ease and made reading fun for him. My son loves the environment and he does not want to leave when his hour is up.Today I received a call from my son's teacher. She surprised me with the news that my son's spring reading MAP scores had increased by 30 points. She also shared with me that other subject areas had improved. Brook, Barry and Barry's father I want to say thank you for a job well done. My son has gained confidence in reading. I have and will continue to recommend Wired Minds to parents who have kids who need additional academic assistance. You have truly helped my son. This is only the beginning to unlocking my son's potentials. I am so grateful for the work you have done thus far.

....AFTER 1 SESSION WORKING ON ALGEBRA 2 WITH AYAONA, MY DAUGHTER, WHO'S LAST TEST SCORE WAS A 16, HAS IMPROVED GREATLY; IN TWO DAYS SHE HAS MADE AN 80 AND THEN A 90 ON MAKEUP MATH TEST!!!!
WOW! PRAISE GOD!!!!!!" - ELIZABETH'S MOM
"The incredible difference that [Wired Minds Tutoring] has made in my son's improvement and confidence in his mathematical skills and his self-esteem is phenomenal. My son has been tutored at other tutoring programs through the years. The one-on-one program which involves the student, parent, tutor and teacher is by far the best program available! Wired Minds is the BEST value for the tutoring dollar---but---please don't raise our rates :) I wish that Wired Minds had existed years ago! Thank you Barry for creating Wired Minds. Children can learn, they need someone like Wired Minds to give them the confidence to try!"

Mr. Barry, I have been meaning to thank you since August for the great summer we had a Wired Minds! George loved the variety of classes and had a blast learning new things in a fun and exciting way! Thank you so much for the special attention you gave him. He is doing great in 2nd grade and we will be in touch if we need anything from you. He would love to do summer camp again next year!!
- George's mom
"Wired Minds has been so helpful to my child. She was having some difficulty in geometry but since attending the sessions with Ayana she seems to have a better understanding of the process and has more confidence. We plan to organize a study group with Wired Minds for the AP Human Geography exam in the spring. We are sold on Wired Minds and would refer any of our friends who may be having difficulties with their studies. Thank You Barry & Ayana!"
- Taylor's mom
Rebecca has developed confidence with herself that she desperately needed before the beginning of this school year. Her attitude toward math has changed dramatically and it is reflected in her grades.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to those you help! - Rebecca's mom
"Wired Minds has been a great experience for my family. Barry and his team are very personable and make learning fun! My child's grades have improved over the past 4 months; however, what I like even more is that she is "understanding" what she is learning! Schools lately are under staffed and are not able to provide the one-on-one teaching that some students need. Wired Minds has proven that the full hour my child attends; is a full hour of tutoring. They make it fun, but at the same time your child learns! Thank you Wired Minds for making such a great impression on a young mind. You have made her feel special and confident in herself." - Vicki Bell
"Did you hear that Annalena got a 90 on her test!!? I was so impressed!" - Annalena's principal
WIRED MINDS IS GREAT. KAYTLIN NOT ONLY LEARNS BUT ALSO HAS A FUN TIME. I AM SO GREATFUL THAT WE FOUND YOU GUYS.
- Kaytlin's mom
Wired Minds Tutoring raised my daughter's grade from a failing grade to a 90 after one session. Awesome! Thank you so much for your professionalism, intelligence, and down to earth personality. Now we are back for help in Spanish. We love Wired Minds.... - S. Palmer
"Barry - Thanks so much for helping Courtney today! She really had a great time, and is already talking about next week!" - Courtney's mom
"Hi Barry, Things are really going great with Dyonte' He brought home another 100% on Friday! I am so proud of him. Thanks for helping Dyonte view math in a totally different manner!"
Hi Barry, we have been extremely pleased with Wired Minds. Our daughter has made great progress and has a much better understanding and grasp of Algebra now and we owe all the credit to you and your staff. Thanks so much again for all the hard work and attention you've given her.
Bill & Tina
"When I visited, you had a lot of good advice. I couldn't get the tutoring for my son at the time but your advice led to a much happier math student...and more successful."
- H. W.
Fantastic. I highly recommend them. They have a brand new building. The price is a little high but it’s worth it. This is a very professional tutoring company. Their goal is to build the children’s self-esteem while they’re tutoring them. When they’re struggling in school it’s tough. It’s very unique teaching but they build up their self-esteem and they can do it.
While my child has never had a big problem with math. She did encounter a stumbling block. Her grade dropped from an A to a B. This does not sound bad but it was a 10 point drop and it killed her confidence. She started attending Wired Minds and her confidence has soared. And her grade followed.
Thanks so much for the PHENOMENAL job you've done teaching my daughter multiplication and fractions. Unlike other programs, Wired Minds makes math fun and exciting. Your creative learning methods ensure that kids truly understand the techniques and not just practice rote memorization. My daughter believes that math is fun. She is truly excited about learning and is more confident than ever!
Thanks for making a difference.
A Very Delighted Third Grade Mom!"
Hello Barry! Here are some of the responses I got from that survey of some of your clients I had to do for my marketing class!
The question was "would you use the facility again and if so, why?":
Absolutely, Barry & his staff are top notch.
Yes. we had a great experience with Barry and Wired Minds. My child improved on his test scores.
Yes - my child responded very positively to the company and wanted to return. That was enough for me!
YES! because the teachers are great!!
Yes I would. We had great results and I am proud to promote Wired Minds without hesitation or reservation.
Yes because my child enjoys time there and has shown definite improvement
AMAZING! I have seen my daughter understand, retain and successfully apply math concepts for about 4 weeks now! Sarah had been struggling to keep up in Algebra 2H. She has always been a strong student and over the course of the first semester became frustrated and disappointed with her lack of understanding and ability to apply what little she did comprehend. When the first semester grades came out, I realized it was time to get Sarah a tutor. I walked into Wired Minds and spoke with Barry. I immediately knew Sarah was going to come away successful. Barry was too passionate about math to allow Sarah to continue to flounder! Wired Minds' Barry Horst, has helped Sarah not only understand Algebra, but like it!!!! She has brought her grade up to a 94% and now has the confidence to continue to tackle even the toughest problems. Success on all levels is what Wired Minds has brought to my daughter! I recommend Wired Minds every chance I get!…
Hi Barry! I just thought of a silly and cute saying about what Wired Minds does! Thought I'd send it on to you!
You have taught them that it's Cool to go to school, but it's even better to get the highest Letter!"
Gabriel loved his session today and said his brain didn't hurt like it does when doing math at school. It was nice to see him having fun with math! - T. Moody
"Drew got a 93 on both a quiz and a test in Math yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Drew's mom
I wanted to thank you for being proactive in helping Hollie in the eleventh hour of her school year. You could have said that it is too late. Hollie passed by the skin of her teeth with a final grade of 70 in Language Arts and 71 in Social Studies. In fact, I got a call today saying that she needed to take both of those courses in both sessions of summer school to get promoted to the 9th grade. I questioned it, and the lady went back and checked and saw that she had passed. I guess the school administration had written her off too.
It's one thing to be compensated, but another to be appreciated, and I do appreciate it.
James’ school grades have dramatically increased! James only started with you guys in November but his enthusiasm for learning and doing well in school is amazing! We're so proud of him!
I can't express to you how much you have made a difference in Blair's math grade, she has went from making an "F" to making all "A's" and "B's" on her tests. She had no confidence and had given up on even trying. Now not only does she feel more confident but believes in herself and believes that with hard work and great people behind her, motivating and supporting her she( such as yourself) she has the ability to do anything. So not only have you helped her in Math but in all that she is doing. Thank you for what you have done in Blair's grades and in her life. - Blair's Mom
We used Wired Minds Tutoring for summer camp last summer. My daughter had problems with math but when she started eighth grade she was more than ready because we had her going to Wired Minds during the summer!
Nick really enjoyed working with George last year in Spanish. George made the lessons fun not the same old boring repetition. - Nick's mom
Excited to see what you are going to do for Chris. He is so "pumped".
- P. H.
"Last summer we enrolled both of our children at Wired Minds for math tutoring over the summer with the hope that over the summer months they wouldn't forget what they had learned in school. One went willingly and the other under protest. I am pleased to report that after the first week of school our child who went begrudgingly, said "I hate to admit this, but going to math this summer really helped. I feel like I'm actually ahead of everyone else. I even remember what I learned there." We were equally as happy with our second child who came home with a 98 on her first high school math test. She even had the highest grade in the class! We were thrilled with their achievements and very proud of both of them! Many thanks to Wired Minds!" - A Thrilled Parent
"You are doing a great job. You have really connected with Jason." - Jason's mom
"Thank you so much for all you that you do!" - Brandon's mom
This is what I wrote for the paper!
Jacob Cohn, 8 and in the second grade at Brushy Creek Elementary School is amazing (and I am not only saying that because he is my son). He is wise beyond his years; however, he does have some learning differences and some issues about liking school or feeling “not smart enough”. He is respectful of others and is a very loyal friend, even to the point that when one hurts him. Academically he has already improved significantly in reading and is a pro at spelling. Our latest issue has been math and raising his confidence and reigniting his love of learning and school along with fueling an interest in reading for fun.
Barry Horst of Wired Minds is incredible. Wired Minds is the needed difference between formal and informal education. Youth have enough pressure from school and testing, homework and grades that the last thing they need is more “school”. Jacob actually loves going to study with Christina, his instructor, each week. His improvements in school both academically and emotionally are the proof. I was beaming when he brought home a week of tests where all but one were an A or even 100. Barry gave him a high five and he really knows how to talk to the kids at their level, but never down to them.
Today Jacob wants to be a fire fighter – scary for me, but a needed and admirable choice that would make us proud.
I just wanted to thank you so much for helping me in my preparations for the SAT. With your help and encouragement, I knew I would be able to succeed in not only my math, but everything I do. Seeing you once a week has helped me increase my score by 80 points to reach my goal. To get my results and see my score made me feel so proud of myself. I am so lucky for having the opportunity to be tutored by you. I hope you and Erin are doing great in your new adventure in life. You two are the nicest people I know.
Barry, I really hope you continue to tutor people and give them the same knowledge you have empowered me with! Good luck with everything, and I'm sure I will be talking with you soon!
Thanks for everything,
"My daughter wanted me to email you to let you know that she received a 105% on her last math test and for the first time in a long time currently has a "A-" in math (4th grade)! She's very excited.
Take care and keep up the good work,
"Paris has had an amazing 6th grade so far! - Straight A's! - I know Wired Minds has taught her to study better, have greater self confidence and all around more desire to succeed in school. We recommend Wired Minds all of the time!!" - Shannon B.
"I brag on Wired Minds to all of Brianna's friends who parents are looking for tutoring. All of your instructors have been a joy to work with." - Terri L.
