Our Team

Each one of our Academic Managers, Coaches & Private Tutors is hand selected by our founder before they enter into her training program. They come from the nation's top universities, Masters Programs and PhD programs, graduating from the top ten percent of their class. They then train between 10-30 hours before even entering into their first home. We feel lucky to say that what truly sets our team of Academic managers, coaches & tutors apart is not simply their intelligence or training, but their genuine desire to see their students succeed. They have also each been selected, in part, due to their experience with children who have been diagnosed with learning differences.
