Because every child learns differently, we take the time to thoroughly assess where your child is. We listen to you, the parent. We also work diligently to identify your child’s weakness, so we can improve on those areas, and we identify their strengths, so we can build on them too. This is not a worksheet program. This is not solely a computer-based approach to learning. This is a customized, one on one, individual assessment and learning plan.
