We are open all of Spring Break! In fact, we'll be offering both morning and evening sessions. There are plenty of options, and Spring Break is a great chance to expedite your child's progress by scheduling extra sessions.
Summer is our busiest time of year! We have sessions six mornings and four evenings a week all summer long. Many students take advantage of the great catch-up time offered in the summertime by scheduling extra sessions. Others utilize the summer to preview next grade-level skills. Still others come back every summer just to stay sharp and keep their minds active over the long break.
In addition to our year-round individualized programs, in the summer we offer two group options:
LITTLE READERS ACADEMY - this kindergarten preparatory program develops cognition, reading, math, and fine motor skills in a fun, individualized environment. The 6-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio ensures that every child receives all the attention they need. Little Readers is a morning program, meeting from 9am-11:30 am, Monday-Thursday. Children can enroll for just one morning, all four, or anything in between.
STUDY SKILLS WORKSHOP - this five-week seminar is intended for students entering 6th-9th grades, and introduces students to all of the fundamentals of good learning habits. Topics include time management, organization, goal-setting, action planning, homework management, project planning, active listening, note taking, active reading, and studying for tests. The Study Skills Workshop meets Tuesday/Thursday evenings from 5pm-7pm, July 11th - August 10.
Yes, GradePower Learning is an investment. But the investment in the lifelong success of your child: Yes, it is worth EVERY PENNY at GradePower Learning!
We no longer have concerns about my older son's success in school, but we know exactly what to if he does encounter problems. This year, the moment my younger son brought home grades that were "low," we enrolled him immediately in GradePower Learning... may his successes result in a future update of additional praises for this awesome place!
Thank you to Gordon, the staff, and to all the teachers at GradePower Learning: You are helping to manifest everything your program advertises; but most importantly, you are facilitating the success of our children, the future World leaders. Thank you for helping my kids rise to & beyond their potential!
A friend of mine told me about GradePower Learning because both her children had had such great experiences here as well. My 7 yr. old son was having a hard time in school. He was behind in reading and was having a really hard time in class following along to instructions. This caused him a tremendous amount of stress. He missed 6 days of school at the beginning of the year just from anxiety. Since we started GradePower Learning he has not missed a day of school! His confidence has shot way up and his anxiety level has shot way down. Gordon & the whole team are just amazing. They have a wonderful way with the kids. I thought for sure it would be hard to get him to GradePower Learning after a full day of school, but he rarely complains. We have seen so much improvement in his reading and overall comprehension, which is great, but to see your child believe in himself a little more is worth more than anything. I have told all my parent friends about GradePower Learning, and would suggest looking no further. GradePower Learning will truly do wonders for your child!
My 5th grader has attended GradePower Learning for about 4 months and I've been very pleased with his progress....Here's what my son has to say: "What I like about GradePower Learning is that it makes me happy, instead of bored, and it gives me fun strategies that I can remember!"
Our daughter attended GradePower Learning & loved it! She looked forward to her time with her instructor & loved the encouraging, positive environment there. Originally, she received help in language arts (English/Reading/writing skills) in 1st grade; however, after being diagnosed with dysgraphia & ADHD, it quickly became apparent she also needed help in processing & manipulating math. Through thorough testing, Gordon was able to pin-point what was "missing" in her processing & help her learn strategies to "reconcile" what was not connecting (putting tools in her tool-belt)
Gordon & the staff did an amazing job of laying a strong foundation early on for our daughter. She still applies the tools she learned in English & math as well as her other subjects. She has become more confident in each success & is currently in Pre-AP English (8th grade) & earning an A in regular math. As stated before, the tools she learned have helped her in her other subjects & when taking standardized tests. Our daughter loves going to school again & doesn't want to miss! She has joy in learning. GradePower Learning laid a strong foundation for her.
The investment has been well-worth it.
Our daughter started attended GradePower Learning (formerly Oxford) upon hearing from her school that she was severely struggling in her reading and they were considering retaining or placing her in 1st grade. Immediately we wanted to find a solution and came upon GradePower Learning. What a blessing it has been! She attends every week and has come so far. We are sticking with GradePower Learning as long as our daughter needs the extra help in reading and math for many reasons. The most important reason is the amazing progress we see in our daughter. In addition, the staff at GradePower Learning is so incredibly professional, friendly and informative. When I was starting my search for a learning center a year ago I visited a couple of their competitors and they did not even compare! I walked in and immediately knew GradePower Learning was where we needed to be and to this day they have not proven me wrong. Thank you, Gordon and your wonderful staff!
Our daughter attended GradePower Learning (then Oxford Learning Center) from kindergarten-second grade. We began there because reading was difficult, and testing suggested our daughter was in danger of falling very behind the norm. Our experience there could not have been more positive, and we know she is the strong reader she is today because of the cognitive therapy and tutoring she received there. They were able to pinpoint what was not happening in her brain, and then they set about to help her to learn how to process correctly, all while keeping her engaged and closing the academic gap.
Gordon and the whole staff are wonderful to work with. They try hard to make it a fun learning environment by hosting theme weeks in the summer and by always keeping a positive, enthusiastic attitude.
The best testimony of all is our daughter's. She NEVER complained once about going to GradePower Learning and actually looked forward to going - even after a full day of school! She sensed the confidence she was gaining and that made her feel so good about herself!
