Learning Foundations takes a whole-brain approach that goes well beyond just “tutoring”. Our team develops a personalized plan for your child to navigate the school year with a set of study skills for learning and a set of self-advocacy skills for communicating.

At Learning Foundations, Academic Coaching is much more than just tutoring. It involves teaching to the executive function and emotional needs of students in all grades. It’s tutoring with a twist!
At Learning Foundations, we believe that every child is unique and needs to understand what their comprehensive needs are. Too often, students feel stressed about how to do an assignment or how to study for a test. A student’s stress soon becomes the family’s stress, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Our Critical Connections Methodology™ (CCM) is a whole-brain approach to learning. Through this multi-sensory method, we teach your child how their brain is naturally and beautifully wired to learn because kids process information with their eyes, their hands, their ears, and their heart. Our method centers on humanizing the learning experience by using both our left brain to make sense of something and our right brain to assess it on a deeper level.
Children have different strengths and challenges in school. Some innately thrive in an academic environment, while others shine brightly in other areas of life. When academics become a struggle, our coaches are ready to show your child how to persevere in the classroom and at home.
Have you ever noticed how emotions affect your performance? Understanding the connection between our emotions and our ability to perform is critical. Our MoteNote helps your student channel their emotions to achieve optimal performance levels in academics and life.
Our team of educational specialists cares about every student’s unique needs, so we use a student-centered, multi-sensory learning approach to teach individualized goals and powerful study skills.

This is a critical component to building confident, capable and compassionate students.
Equipped with dozens of powerful executive functioning study skills and emotional coping skills, our coaches teach students how to study, how to organize, and how to make critical connections that will optimize their learning experience.

Schools design a curriculum that provides students with the important subject matter to master. In other words, they teach students what to learn. However, this is only part of the learning equation.
