What Parents & Students Are Saying

"His confidence has already improved just in the few weeks he's been at GradePower Learning . The encouraging, devoted staff has made a huge impact on his attitude toward learning as well. Even the kids that go there have a special bond. I love this place! :)"

Heather Brook Soto - Oak Mountain

"Very nurturing and supportive environment! The staff works diligently on assessing the needs of the individual while providing the tools to attain positive and successful learning techniques. GradePower Learning is awesome! 5 stars!"

Shannon S. - Briarwood

"Our son was in third grade when we started GradePower. We used their services for 1 1/2 years and could not have been more pleased with our son's progress. They were very flexible with what he needed and very patient with him as well. His reading levels improved to his grade level and his math scores increased as well."

Traci Griffin - Mt. Laurel

"Our daughter got good grades before going to GradePower Learning, but she sometimes struggled to get them. One day she came home and said, "I want to go to GradePower Learning, because when they explained math in my class today made sense." Since she's been there she's been more willing to face challenging math problems, whereas before she'd get upset and give up. Her grades have improved and homework time in our house is much calmer."

Jennifer - Mt. Laurel

"Our son went through Beyond Tutoring and through that experience his skills in reading and writing quickly soared. The program was a great experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling to help their child learn to read. Our son did advance during the school year and the program was as successful helping him further grow his reading skills. We greatly appreciate the coaches and staff at GradePower Learning!"

Elizabeth Bray - Mt. Laurel

"We truly believe in GradePower Learning. My high school daughter is doing much better after spending part of her summer there. My kids will be enrolled this summer."

Heather Ferrari-Mahaffey - Oak Mountain

My son really struggled with reading during kindergarten and into first grade, and I was worried about him falling farther behind. It was frustrating for both of us and clear that I couldn't help him. His teacher recommended a tutor and that did help him some. Initially we went this route thinking it would be cheaper than GradePower. As summer approached, I knew we needed a plan to keep working on his skills. After meeting with the staff, I realized GradePower was less expensive per hour than what I had paid the tutor. He progressed wonderfully over the next six months and gained so much confidence. Thank you GradePower!

Lindsay Knight - Mt. Laurel

"Thank you all so much. Bryan is doing so much better at school. He loves GradePower Learning!"

Jackie Chaviano - Oak Mountain

Everyone at GradePower is excellent! At first, my son was very reluctant to go inside and open up, but the teachers are so friendly and encouraging, he enjoys every class. I plan to continue with GradePower for as long as I can.

Leigh Creekbaum - Mt. Laurel

"I just wanted to give an update on my oldest son who was at GP for about a year ending in September 2014. He has been self-sufficient with a new confidence ever since! I am so proud of his accomplishments this year and am beyond grateful for the entire staff at GradePower. My youngest son will be attending this summer at his own request saying it worked for "his bro." We are looking forward to it. Thanks GP!"

Heather Brook Soto - Oak Mountain

Both of my sons, Nickolas and James - attended GradePower at Lee Branch for a little over a year, one focusing more on Math and one more in Reading. Could say nothing but good things about the entire staff from the way they worked with our schedules to the personal attention and care they gave to my children. I feel that both of my children benefitted from and improved their academic skills with the help of GradePower! I would highly recommend it to any family who would like to help their children succeed!

Stephanie Gifford - Our Lady of the Valley

We have been extremely happy with GradePower! Our son has had difficulties on many levels. GradePower has instilled a confidence and excitement in our son that we have never seen before! We highly recommend Tony and his staff to help your child get to the next level of learning! GradePower is GREAT!

Our unique approach to supplemental learning is the only concept of its kind that develops both a student’s cognitive foundation and academic skills. This is not your typical academic setting. Our centers take active learning to a new level. We offer a lively, stimulating environment in which students and educators look forward to participating. It’s not a library. It’s not a classroom. GradePower is abuzz with energy from students that get energized every time their “light bulb” turns on.

Learning, the way it should be

 

Parents: Are you in the 90%? If so, read why you don't want to be.

Two pieces of news recently broke about the flagging state of education in Alabama and nationwide:

1. ABC News Report: While 90% of parents think their child is at or above grade level, less than 35% of kids actually are. (Becky Worley)

2. AL.com: Alabama ACT scores remain unchanged, ranking in the bottom five states in the U.S.; college and career readiness in Alabama is less than 32%. (Kyle Whitmire)

Make sure you're not in the "Naive 90%" 

Obviously, schools are inflating report cards and giving parents like you a false sense of security.  We want to help you empower youself. Contact us  today to get the truth. Schedule your child's Dynamic Learning Assessment for only $150! That's $100 off (regularly $250)! You'll get an accurate picture of your child's grade level standing, and you'll ensure that your son or daughter demonstrates college and career readiness. Plus, you'll receive detailed cognitive information on your child's learning style, instincts, strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies.

Stay Ahead Membership

(Grades 3-12)

WITH STAY AHEAD, YOUR CHILD RECEIVES:

Two-hour per week individualized cognitive learning plan

Cognitive learning is natural to your child. Instead of relying on cramming and rote learning habits that have been proven to not work, cognitive learning helps your child use logic to build on previously learned concepts. Through practicing how to apply cognitive learning to academic content , your child will soon realize that there’s no better fuel for motivation and confidence than competence.

GradePower Learning Study Hall - Over 50 hours of available monthly academic support!
In GradePower Learning study hall, your child will receive supervised support from degreed professionals to master their daily school work using the GradePower Learning strategies they’re developing in their individualized learning plan.

  • Your child is welcome to join study hall any time after school on any day to receive academic school support.

  • Math, science, history. You name it, we’ll help! Stay for as little-or as long-as needed.

Education, the way it should be

Research has proven that “tutoring” alone simply does not sustain success. Tutoring reinforces bad learning habits; passive mindedness, short-term memorization, and dependency on others for average results. Consequently, kids who are only tutored remain perpetually behind or, at best, achieve minimum expectations. It’s the most of what you’ll get from any other “tutoring box” or moonlighting teacher. It’s the least of what’s available at GradePower Learning!

Multiple payment options and no cotracts make GradePower Learning an affordable and worthwhile investment for all families. Check out our many endorsements on our website and Google!
