Education transforms lives and expands futures when it is cultivated with a growth mindset.
We exist for the sake of individuals, families, and community partners — who seek our services.

We believe in complete honesty in our interactions. We do what we say we will do, and we expect the same from others.
Learning Lab Approach
Learning Lab’s process is research-based and results driven. Each student’s journey is a collaborative partnership among multiple parties: students, parents, tutors, teachers and, where appropriate, medical professionals. Our team offers expert tutoring in all academic subjects, specialized help for giftedness as well as for those with learning differences, preparation for standardized testing, study and organizational programs, and support for those who are either fully or partially homeschooled.
We map each student’s journey at Learning Lab using a five-step process. This is the Learning Lab Approach…and it works.
Learning Lab Approach Steps:
Understand: We begin with a free personalized consultation to gain an understanding of each child's unique learning profile.
Plan: We then develop a plan to address their specific learning needs.
Partner: Then we design the optimum learning environment for the student.
Evaluate: With continuous monitoring we evaluate each student's progress and provide feedback to all involved.
Celebrate: Equally as important, we applaud each student's progress by celebrating their achievements.
Keeping Everyone In The Loop
Our philosophy at Learning Lab is that learning is a partnership between the student and their parents, teachers, tutors, and other professionals, as appropriate. That is why we developed In The Loop, our proprietary online system that enables continuous monitoring updates and feedback among all necessary parties 24/7.
For parents, teachers, and health professionals, In The Loop provides ongoing insight into a student’s progress at Learning Lab. For the Learning Lab tutor, it allows immediate and continuous reporting of successes and issues the student has experienced to parents, as well as modifying the student’s customized learning program as necessary.
With In The Loop, all parties receive simultaneous feedback from one another, a group enhancement to the overall learning process.
