"This is Opeyemi Ojo. I was the junior who participated in the SAT/SHSAT Test Prep class that you taught in the NDA Program at Queens HS for Information, Research, and Technology (QIRT). I'm now in my senior year now. I really hope I'm ringing a bell.
I wanted to tell you "thank you" because I got a very good grade on my SAT - 1220. Better than I was expecting. Far better than what I got on the practice test that I took at the beginning of your class - 1000. You're very good at what you do and I am living proof. So, thank you very much for allowing me to be a part of something I wasn't even supposed to be a part of to begin with...
