A nurturing, individualized learning experience to strengthen and enrich critical skills through engaging lessons that accommodate your child's learning style. 

Who we are

Considering the whole child is the cornerstone of our approach to learning. Whether your objective is  reinforcement, enrichment, test prep, specialized instruction utilizing the Orton Gillingham Approach, or supplementing distance learning, the ultimate goal is to inspire independent learners. We achieve this through in- person and virtual tutoring. 

At PLEASED, we start with a thorough academic assessment and then plan individual lessons to meet your child's specific needs and academic goals. Lessons are designed to engage children by integrating an element of fun into a rigorous session. True success can only be achieved when children are excited to learn.  As a result of our work together, students will gain self-confidence as well as the ability to persevere through challenges. 

Let's get started

Working together

Collaboration between teachers and families is critical to your child's success; therefore, parents will receive periodic progress updates and when appropriate, we are happy to communicate directly with teachers.
