More than 10,000 sessions were used by military members in November 2016. The most popular session topics are English, math (algebra, calculus, statistics), science and accounting. DoD and DANTES continue to receive positive feedback from the military members that are using the service too. Here’s what one student said about his math tutoring experience:

"I just want to say thanks for the free session for military members. It's really hard for some of us to complete our education and sometimes we have to teach ourselves… things like this really are a blessing from the other things going on in our lives... I really appreciate it. Great services. Thank you."
