Our goal for each student, regardless of age, is that he/she becomes as comfortable and independent a learner as possible. In order to do this, we work closely with parents, communicate with schools, frequently monitor progress, and provide the most effective intervention to resolve barriers to learning and behavior. We work one-to-one with students in a positive, supportive environment to provide instruction that is targeted to student’s specific needs and learning style. The trusting and nurturing relationship our clients develop with their learning specialist is key to our success.
