Anyone who’s met me knows that I don’t suffer from low self-esteem, either professionally or personally. As far as Chariot Learning goes, I could not be more proud of the work our expert team does, the results we help students achieve, or the lives we change for the better year after year. Since we do not operate in an industry that includes any professional ranking system or really receives much attention at all, we’ve measured our success in terms of business growth, score improvement, client testimonials, and, of course, the satisfaction of a job well done. But, suddenly and unexpectedly, we’ve received an award… ROCHESTER October 25, 2018 — Chariot Learning has been selected for the 2018 Best of Rochester Award in the Tutoring Service category by the Rochester Award Program.

If, like us, you love Rochester and love books, you’re probably looking forward to the next Greater Rochester Teen Book Festival. And if, unlike us, you’re artistically inclined, you can do a lot to make the 10th Annual Teen Book Festival in May 2015 even more amazing: design the TBF t-shirt and program cover. They’re looking for teen artwork, so get to work! The deadline is March 1, but why wait?

Even if you live in Western New York, you may not have noticed that Rochester residents ROCK Earth Day. This spring, Delta Laboratories organized a massive Greater Rochester Earth Day CleanUP that blended trash collection with data collection to teach students about water quality and pollution. Sounds fun, but was this event successful? Does a 61% increase in trash collection over last year sound good enough? According to the final tally, 2,658 volunteers across the area collected over 2,389 bags of trash and large debris from our environment. Way to go! Kudos to everyone who contributed and participated in this outstanding environmental event. This is the first year that Chariot Learning sponsored the Greater Rochester Earth Day CleanUP, but it definitely won’t be the last!
