GradePower Learning is a global leader in Supplemental Education. We are new to Minnesota, and at GradePower Learning we take pride in being a little different. In so many ways, this is like no place you’ve ever worked. Seriously, we love what we do, and we love having fun while doing it! We strive to hire excellent people, and we expect excellence. Great people make a great team and will keep our company strong. We are passionate about our mission; to help children achieve their highest potential!
Our approach is fundamentally different and goes way beyond tutoring. Our teaching methods emphasize cognitive learning as a major component of the learning process. We combine cognitive learning and interactive coaching to develop active thinkers, healthy self-esteem, and a lasting love of learning. Our unique programs teach children to learn how to learn, breaking the cycle of hiring tutors year after year.

No lesson plans, no preparation. You will be trained on our proprietary curriculum and given the tools to be a successful coach in a small group setting.

At GradePower Learning®, we understand how upsetting, scary, guilt-inducing, and frustrating it can be when your child is struggling academically. That’s why we want to start with two simple, potentially surprising facts that may make you feel better right away:
Poor grades don’t necessarily mean that your child isn’t smart.
Poor grades are often caused by a deficiency in the fundamental cognitive skills that make up what we call learning.
When it comes to developing these critical cognitive skills, forcing your child to “buckle down and study harder” doesn’t work (or make home a very happy place to be). Neither do traditional tutors, endless drills, or rote memorization.
What doeswork is teaching your child the cognitive skills he or she needs to “get it”; to truly understand a subject. That’s the core of the GradePower Learning® system, the only learning system developed based on scientific research into how children actually learn. The life-changing success it brings is why we love what we do.
GradePower Learning understands the challenges that may arise with motivating children to do their homework and improve their grades. We are passionate about awakening a spirit of confidence and enthusiasm in students which eliminates low self-esteem. GradePower Learning is committed to partnering with parents and teachers to not only increase scholastic achievement but to also foster a striving for excellence within the student.
We are proud to bring this opportunity to school-aged students in our area. This center is the first GradePower Learning to open in Minnesota and is unique in that the programs offered teach students how to learn rather than just pass a subject. Many tutoring centers focus on memorization and passing the current class, but GradePower Learning goes above and beyond simple memorization techniques.
GradePower Learning’s exclusive academic-based cognitive learning approach affords students a lifetime of learning skills.
