What families say about working with Christian:
“Attached is my acceptance letter. You made me realize I could do this. All thanks to you. Thank you! I am extremely grateful for everything you have done for me. My goal now is to be the strongest, fastest, most talented player (on my college team). Thanks again. “— Willie Gould
“I’ve seen such positive change in Pete and his study habits! He has been spending a lot more time working on his homework and studying for tests and quizzes. He has told me that he doesn't want to let you down :) and i know he doesn't want to let himself down, either. I know he's been frustrated by some of the grades he's come home with, but he remains motivated and on task. He has such a newfound desire to improve. He looks forward to your weekly meetings and really enjoys your time together. I have never been able to motivate him the way you have, and I am so grateful!!”— Donna Johnson
“Before working with Coach Buck, my mindset was always to have a strong work ethic, but it was always geared towards lacrosse and what can I do to better my performance and get me to that next level. This included lifting, running, footwork, shooting, stick work, etc. I knew if I put in the time in all those areas of my game, I would get better and be more prepared. It never really crossed my mind that I could translate that same work ethic towards school.The feeling I had after seeing results was eye opening. For me, it’s the same feeling as after you practice something for a while and finally get to do in out on the field in practice or games. Or when you set a new personal best in a certain lift in the gym. If you put in the time every day and consistently work towards something, your goals are attainable!”— Isaac Paparo
