"My wife and I signed our daughter up to help her reading skills over the summer. The staff was great and very friendly. I am glad we have a locally family owned business that can support our 3 kids with their education. Highly Recommended!"

"My son has really seen improvement since starting GradePower Learning and his academic confidence has come full circle. He is actually excited to go to school! I like that he can get help with all subjects each week or focus on one area if he is having trouble. The staff is great on keeping me well informed on my child's progress and I am always greeted with a big smile and always feel welcome as a parent."
-Terry F., Lithia, Florida
"I chose GradePower Learning because they are more than a tutor. They get to the core of the issues your child is having and help build those skills so that learning becomes easier. My son's grades drastically improved (1 grade shy of A/B honor roll) and he has more confidence now. Thank you to everyone at GradePower Learning for their patience and helping my son improve."
-Amy G., Valrico, Florida
"GradePower Learning is a great place for students. My daughter just started tutoring there and she loves it, Everyone is very nice and helpful. They truly only care about the childs education as their main priority. Before my daughter started there she was not doing well with her reading, every week she was bringing home failing grades on her test, now since shes started she has taken her first test and has shown a big improvement! I am very proud of her and very impressed with this company. They are highly recommended!"
-Christin B., Riverview, Florida
"We have had the best experience! I had never heard of them until we went to the Fishhawk Pumpkin Festival and they were offering a chance to win an evaluation. I was skeptical at first, but they are great. They explain everything in detail for you and the process. My daughter ins in 3rd grade and goes twice a week and loves it! She likes all the instructors there. I know it is improving her confidence and grades. Last week she took a practice FCAT and received a 90%. Thank you!"
-Nikole S., Lithia, Florida
"I have had a great experience with GradePower Learning! My son is finally getting motivated and learning ways to stay calm and be focused. The staff is passionate about teaching, which leave our kids eager to return to learn more. They have also been very flexible with our time slots and payment plans. We appreciate how hard they work to help set up our child for successful learning."

"Amazing work! They really helped my second grader!"
-Cindy L., Valrico, Florida
"What a great experience we have had with GradePower Learning. My daughter looks forward to going and actually gets upset if we try to cancel to do something else. Around Christmas time we were driving to a relatives for dinner and she started to read the story of Christmas that she had gotten from Sunday school. It was beautiful and all the proof I needed that what they are doing for her was working. Thank you Andrew and the staff at GradePower Learning for that moment and every moment since."
"Awesome place! Amazing people! I have a son in the little readers program and I am looking forward to having my other children join other classes as well. The building is fun colorful and an excellent learning environment. I have used other centers before however I love the personal touch GradePower Learning offers."
"My son's scores went up 5 points on the ACT! He's now getting the Bright Futures scholarship which is going to save us thousands over the next four years. Heather and Andrew at GradePower Learning Rock!"
"The team at GradePower Learning Brandon is amazing and the tutoring center is nice! New and clean and a great learning environment for our kids. Great job Andrew and Heather!"
"The experienced staff and beautiful facility is absolutely Top Notch. If you want to brighten your child's future I highly recommend starting here. The best learning facility in Brandon by far!"
"Watching our kids grasp the concepts that had been hard for them and seeing their increased self esteem is why I emphatically recommend GradePower Learning! I would give them 10 stars!"
"A very positive step in whatever direction life takes your child. They can never be too prepared!"
"Amazing place with amazing people! Not only is my daughter improving her skills in school but she absolutely enjoys going to GradePower Learning. Andrew and his staff have been such a positive influence for my daughter. I would definitely recommend GradePower Learning to anyone who has a struggling student."
