Who We Are

Just as we need food, clothes and shelter, we also need a quality educational experience.  Education is the crux of any modern-industrialized society, and with it a society prospers.  There are many ways to be successful in our schools and the demand to reach this feat in academic areas is on the rise.

For this reason, we are opening a learning center that will provide teenagers and adults with an opportunity to improve the quality of their educational experience in our schools at a competitive market rate.  However, our formula is a little different than some learning centers.  Our focus is on improving the ability to learn first and then provide the tools needed to increase communication and analytical skills.  This includes a focus on work ethic, interrelated curriculum, rigor, and goal-setting.

As a seasoned special educator in the middle and high schools with a certification in school administration, it has been my experience that older students need just as much attention, if not more, as younger students to get ahead in school. Adults also need this support to experience upward mobility on their jobs or to just get back in the classroom after so many years.

What We Need

With your funding, we will be able to purchase the following items:

  • Evidence-based programs and site-licenses that teach the fundamentals of reading, writing, and math as well as subject-specific curriculum.
  • Technology to run the programs.
  • Furniture for the tutors and students.

Your Influence

By reaching out to our business with your investments, you are helping produce more citizens who have the caliber of skills necessary to graduate from college and to enter the workforce.

Risks & Challenges

As with any new business, there are some risks involved.  There is the competition of franchise tutoring centers, online tutors, and in-home tutors.  However, we are not under any proprietary curriculum, which can get costly, and we offer more than just subject tutoring.  We offer solutions that help improve cognitive functioning, in addition to skill-based and content-based help by using a compilation of evidence-based programs that provide an effective formula to learning.  We also strive to take away some of the stigma that is associated with getting help outside of the home or school.
