We specialize in providing the highest quality of our Exclusive One-on-One instruction (never in groups) by customizing educational programs based on the individual needs of students.
We develop programs based on the learning style and skill level of the student, not based on their grade level.
Almost all of our teaching staff have MASTERS DEGREES and are CERTIFIED TEACHERS.  Our highly trained and qualified teachers work with students one-on-one, in the least restrictive and most comfortable environment, be it their home or our classrooms.
Some of our  students are required to work only for 2 to 3 hours a day, so that they can have time for their other assignments, such as tennis, golf, swimming, gymnastics, acting, music, or any other activity.
Our teachers are experienced and in teaching kids with learning differences and gifted/talented as well.
