Dear Valued Clients,

I want to take time to thank you for entrusting your children to our learning center. I’m truly blessed to have wonderful parents who are supportive while we develop your child’s learning and reading skills. I can speak for all my employees when I say that we enjoy working one-on-one with your children, helping them develop into stronger readers and learners. Starting January 2017, our rates will increase to meet the increased costs of living.


1 hour: $80 per session


45 min: $70 per session


When tutoring multiple children per family during the same scheduling period, the 1st child is charged at the base rate and all subsequent children will receive a 10% discount.


When scheduling 3 or more days per week, you will receive a 10% discount


Summer Intensive Camp - $950 for 2-week session.



I did not make this decision lightly, but I am confident that this increase is necessary to continue to provide quality tutoring and education services. We will provide the best access to materials and offer effective, scientifically proven brain-based programs to help your children learn more effectively.


These rates will be posted on my website and effective January 1, 2017.


Thank you for your understanding.
