Much More Than Tutoring

7522261_sAt The Learning Curves, our goal is to prepare the brain for learning by strengthening or developing the underlying thinking processes that allow academic skills to flourish.

Students of The Learning Curves find that they spend less time on homework. They report that they are able to pay better attention and are more successful in the classroom. The number one comment heard is that students feel more confident in their abilities to do their work independently.

“His greatest improvement this past year I think has been his concentration. He can stay focused for longer periods of time, therefore, his comprehension (when listening) has improved, and he’s able to accomplish more in a shorter amount of time with fewer disruptions from himself. ALSO, he is applying skills that he has learned independently…”

The services offered at The Learning Curves include programs appropriate for a wide variety of ages and learning issues, from those labeled learning disabled or dyslexic to others who simply struggle with school. Solutions to dyslexia, learning disabilities and attention problems are offered. A range of cognitive learning therapies address the underlying reasons students struggle.

Work is one-on-one with students and focuses on strengthening those skills needed for independent, academic successes. The needs of students vary greatly, and appropriate programs are matched to the individual’s learning needs. These needs are evaluated for FREE to determine the most appropriate program recommendation.

Many programs include work at home with parents. Parental assistance increases intensity and effectiveness while decreasing expenses.
