    Success Stories



    “This is exactly what we were looking for with regards to helping our child gain confidence while talking to others in a safe environment. Mr. LeCara exceeded our expectations.”

    — Phil G (2022)




    “Teens who are shy, or those who have learning disabilities. Mr.L is an outstanding teacher. Would highly recommend him.”

    — Kai K (2019)




    “My 15-year-old son took book part 1 and part 2 of this course. He said he enjoyed the course and learned many things, including tips on how to read non-verbal cues and also more about himself, through the assigned homework. He said Mr. LeCara was on-time, organized, and kind. The final project was a challenge for my son but it was really a good exercise for him.

    As a parent, I appreciated the detailed and regular emails with feedback on what was discussed in class, homework assignments, and efforts to just check-in with the teen participants. I also thought it was great that Mr. LeCara tailored the information on communication to include how to do so in a world with masks over faces and decreased in-person interaction.”

    — M (2020)




    “Excellent class. Mr LeCara has a warm and open approach with his students and provides wonderful resources. My son gained an understanding as to why he has had some struggles as well as the confidence to know how to address them head on. It has been a wonderful complement to the new elearning school setting!”

    — Maggie A.




    “Ray has an intangible I’ve never been able to put my finger on, but I would say that he has a way of connecting with truth that I’ve never experienced professionally. There is such a deeply personal, soulful, wonderful man inside of him and it just pours out. There is a sincerity you just don’t encounter often. He’s become more than a trusted ally and coach, but a friend I can reach out for ideas and encouragement. I hope this review gives the reader the impetus to consider Ray’s services greatly and it’s my prayer it has impact because it’s richly deserved.”

    — Robert J (2021)




    “My junior in high school with ADHD took this class before the start of school because one of his biggest challenges is getting organized to study and knowing what to focus on. My son said that the teacher was really engaging, clearly put a lot of work into the lesson plan, and he really liked his teaching style. He said that he now feels like he will be more focused and organized for school this year.”

    — Nancy C (2020)




    “I had the opportunity to work with Ray over the last 8 months and have found him to bring a unique, intentional and relentless point of view. To be fair, when I say relentless, I mean it in the most encouraging way. I am a hard headed and driven person. I’ve started and sold companies. I’ve been in leadership roles for many years. Yet, when I met Ray, I encountered a man singularly focused on the “things that are me.” Ray found a way to coax out the hidden secrets I kept inside for the last 52 years... Examples being my fear of loneliness, my struggles with parents, my struggles as a father and husband, my desires to earn a bigger living and the feelings of failure that surrounded it. Ray helped me see through the challenge of never being enough to being more than enough. For that alone, Ray is worth every second of your investment. I can’t wait to see where we go next.”

    — Robert J L(2019)




    “Truly a master teacher.”

    — Sue P, CFO




    “I have never seen a teacher who was more sincere and cared more for the children. Mr. LeCara deeply cared that my son got the most out of this course and went above and beyond to make it happen! Very rare and much appreciated. As for the course itself, it was very well designed with the right amount of expected involvement and work from the learners. My son really enjoyed it and wants to do the next level soon. If your child needs help opening up, this course is truly amazing. It was recommended by a friend whose 11 year old son was able to put the learned principles into practice and has been able to make friends and have conversations in all settings. So I know it works!!”

    — Indu (2021)




    “Thank you, Ray! Word breathing life into my soul right now! Thank you too for making time to speak with me on Saturday. Thank you for being the embodiment of a true leader. I define a true leader as someone who puts others’ needs, wants, and desires before their own - a servant leader. You are that!”

    — Jon L (2018)




    “This class was managed and executed beautifully! Mr. LeCara took time to connect with each student and provided practical and individualized strategies that empower lifelong learning. He kept students engaged and on task with specific objectives. Mr. LeCara is clearly a skilled educator. He patiently facilitated a safe and challenging environment for my son. In fact, I’ve already scouted out another one of his classes for my daughter. I would recommend Mr. LeCara without hesitation.”

    — Eli H (2020)




    “Mr. LeCara is hands down one of the best teachers. He is well prepared, really engages the kids and is extremely thoughtful in his approach. I can tell he really cares about how the kids are progressing and truly wants to help them be the best they can be. Bravo to Mr. LeCara for an excellent class - my son got a lot out of it, and was made to feel very comfortable in an area (social conversation) that sometimes makes him anxious. I highly recommend this class and Mr. LeCara as a teacher.”
