Catch Up Academically

Engage Fully in Learning
Stay Ahead of the Curve

Your child is expected to perform in a high-stakes academic setting. It’s stressful for them, and it’s stressful for you.

How does childhood become so intense, so fast? Celebrating first giggles and first steps feels like yesterday. But now, how your child learns affects their future. Too often, as pressure mounts, the joy of learning seeps away.


It doesn’t have to be that way. We believe learning should always be full of delight.

Speak with Lara to share concerns and goals you have about your child. Discover how PLEASED can partner with you so your child reaches their maximum potential.


Sign-up for an assessment

Lara will assess your child to create a holistic narrative of your learner’s academic strengths and needs. This will be the foundation for your child and their private teacher's individualized learning pathway to achieve their identified goals.


Build confidence and succeed

The bedrock of this will be a strong student-teacher relationship so your learner develops better social-emotional skills and excel academically. Our teachers will discover who your child is both with and without their learner cap on.

...He is happier and more confident both at school and at home...

"Our P.L.E.A.S.E.D. private teacher has changed my 7-year-old's life. He was struggling with reading and always fought going to his tutor. Lara makes learning and reading fun! Not only is he reading, but he loves working with her. He is happier and more confident both at school and at home. Thank you for helping our family."

...the skills he is learning will help him with the school interview process.

"I started sending my four-year-old to PLEASED to get a leg up with pre-literacy skills. Within a few weeks, he was rhyming and writing new letters. He loves going to see his teacher and I am confident that the skills he is learning will help him with the school interview process."

-PLEASED parent

Our families say it best:

Time spent together combines rigorous instruction with love, play, and a joy for learning.

Help your child develop the skills and confidence to succeed in school and in life.
