What Parents & Students Are Saying

I wanted to thank you for attending and engaging in Ava’s IEP meeting a couple of weeks ago. We realize how important it is to have a strong team when it comes to special education, and we appreciate you partnering with us on Ava’s behalf. Morgan and I have been very pleased with all Ava has accomplished since beginning GradePower Learning. Although we know she is still catching up, we are very relieved to have found a program that is helping her achieve real results. I appreciate the proactive approach learning and preparing for tests and assignments, which seems to be the backbone of the GradePower Learning method. You are giving her the tools to effectively learn versus cramming and bracing for mediocrity or less. Our weeks are a lot less overwhelming as we implement the strategies and methods you are teaching Ava. I feel like we are managing school assignments and test into our lives instead of the dread and disruption of the night before information whipping to pray we suffered enough to get an average grade. We are seeing independence and organization developed from GradePower Learning running over into all aspects of Ava’s life – that is HUGE for us. Most importantly, she is finding confidence through academic success that she desperately needed. She loves going to GradePower Learning and is upset when we have to reschedule. I want you and your staff to know what a great job you are doing with Ava, and that our family is very thankful for all you do! Now if you would just move to Homewood, my life would be complete.

Laura Berry - Homewood

"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

Both of my sons, Nickolas and James - attended GradePower Learning 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 Learning! I would highly recommend it to any family who would like to help their children succeed!

Stephanie Gifford - Our Lady of the Valley

"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

We have been extremely happy with GradePower Learning! Our son has had difficulties on many levels. GradePower Learning 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 Learning is GREAT!

Kari Harris - Coosa Valley Academy

"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

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

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

Our son was in third grade when we started GradePowerLearning. 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

"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

"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

"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!"

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 "90%" 

It's easy to get a false sense of security when extra assignments boost grades. We want to help you get your child ready for the next grade and for future academic success. Contact us today to schedule your child's Dynamic Learning Assessment. 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, strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies.

Kathleen Brown, Ph. D. and Tony Mauro, MBA, represented GradePower Learning with a presentation titled, “How to create an ‘ACT IEP’ (individualized education plan).” Teachers and administrators from across Alabama learned:

1. Which factors drive better ACT performance
2. The components of an “ACT IEP”
3. When to begin implementing the IEP
4. How to use the ACT Aspire and other diagnostics to engage students and their parents in the “ACT IEP” process

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

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 single 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 demonstrated that “tutoring” alone simply does not sustain success. Tutoring reinforces bad learning habits, passive rather than active minds, short-term memorization, and dependency on others for average results. Consequently, kids who are only tutored remain continually behind or, at best, achieve minimum expectations. It’s the most of what you’ll get from any other “tutoring box” or moonlighting teacher. At GradePower Learning we teach school success strategies and develop your child's cognitive learning and academic skills. 

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