What Parents & Students Are Saying

My son has been working with Mike, Ruth, and the GradePower Learning team for over a year and a half and we have been beyond pleased with their service! Their personalized approach, regular progress reports to parents, customized learning strategies tailored to ensure the success of their students, collaborative approach in working with their student's teachers/schools, and partnership (through open dialogue with parents, etc.) has exceeded our expectations. Our son is now performing at grade level, continues to receive praise from his teacher, and we intend to continue to work with the GradePower Learning team to ensure that he remains successful throughout his adolescent years. Thank you for all that you have done for our family and I would highly recommend your services to anyone who is looking to work with the best tutoring program in the valley!

What GradePower does, is what public schools can not, and that is teach a child HOW to learn. So often kids are taught "here is the lesson, now learn", but not how. My son was a good student, but when classes became more of a struggle, he didn't have a clear direction on how to conquer an assignment. After a summer and school year of GradePower, his confidence skyrocketed! He knows how to analyze his assignments, choose the best course of action, and complete his work. He learned HOW to learn. Time and money well spent!

GradePower Learning and their staff make miracles happen. Our two boys are both enrolled and have made huge progress. Our 9-year-old is doing so much better in school since he started GPL. He reads and writes better, has a better understanding of his subjects and is more confident in himself. Our 4-year-old is so advanced in his knowledge that he is already kindergarten-ready and possibly first grade-ready. Although it all depends on the child, all the staff at GradePower Learning takes time to recognize individual needs and focuses on those first. We can not thank them enough.

GradePower Learning has been amazing with both our boys. One of who has autism and was heading into middle school. They taught him how to be prepped and ready for the changes that came and worked with his counselor to make sure he was on track and doing well with the transition from elementary to middle school. Our other son was below average in reading ending the school year and by the following spring, he tested above grade level in the same category. What a blessing they have been to our boys and our family!

GradePower Learning has helped my 6th grader immensely! I am very impressed with the entire staff. My only regret is that I didn't find them sooner.

Terri D.

My son was diagnosed with ADHD and has been on an IEP. He has been at GradePower Learning for a little over a year and has made huge gains in his education. By the middle of the school year, he was tested and was ineligible for some of his IEP classes due to his test scores being too high! This program is amazing!

Travis K.

Tonight I came home from work and my son wants to show me his new (GradePower Learning) shirt, and tell me all about his class today :) I smile ear to ear knowing he has a love for learning. GradePower Learning was a good move and Ayden is one amazing rad little dude. #knowledgeispower You guys were amazing this summer. I can truly say my kids felt right at home with Mike, you, and of course, all of your staff !

Megan G.

Everyday he surprises me. Thanks to all of you. I'm forever grateful. It's nice to have tears of happiness for him, instead of frustration. He loves going to GradePower Learning. He's like a new kid when it comes to reading or homework. I'm so proud of him.

Christy D.

Andrew had a great summer school experience! He got to learn in a loving and caring environment with a great teacher. Thank you Miss Ruth for getting him excited about school again.

Kelly B.

Our daughter has been attending GradePower Learning for almost a year now! We checked out GradePower Learning for our daughter to gain a better understanding and more confidence in math. From the moment that we walked in the door it has been an amazing experience. Our daughter was in 4th grade and struggling with math. Her dad and I were no help because we did not even understand what was going on. We would create more frustration because we would teach her the way we learned. We decided the best thing for her and us was to check out GradePower Learning. When she started in April 2016 her grade was a 2.5 by the time she finished 4th grade in June she was at a 3 hovering over a 3.5. She gained so much confidence that she would tackle the extra credit math questions which her teacher said she had never done before. She continued with her tutor through summer and walked into 5th grade with the confidence she could tackle anything and that is exactly what she has done. Her grade has continued to stay at or above a 3. Her class was given a test on multiplying decimals and due to her being the only one in her class that passed the test with 100% she was able to teach the class what she knew. Robert (our daughter’s tutor) has been a godsend. The relationship that he and our daughter have built is amazing. He has given her so much confidence. Our daughter looks forward to her session every week. If you are thinking about GradePower Learning, all I can tell you is … stop thinking and get in there. Ruth and Mike are awesome and their staff is top notch! We THANK GradePower Learning every day for what they have given to our daughter!

Natashia R.

My 7-year old girl and 9-year old boy absolutely love coming here. They even asked if they could come to GradePower Learning instead of school. Ruth and Mike are two wonderful human beings. You can tell they both have a passion for children and learning. GradePower Learning is definitely beyond a tutoring program, it's learning lessons that your child will have for life and be able to implement into any scenario. We couldn't be more impressed with the progress our children have made just in their confidence level. I love that GradePower Learning connects with your child's teacher with a one-on-one meeting to make sure they gear their teaching program based on your child's needs. The expense is totally worth investing in your child's education now. Thank you for caring so much about our kiddos and helping them learn in a fun/ positive environment!

Shyla C.

Our daughter Laila loved her experience at GradePower Learning Meridian. The staff is knowledgeable and very welcoming. They take the time to learn your child's strengths and the areas they may need some help in. Highly recommend!

Nicole B.

Just finished Little Readers for my struggling 5-year-old. Fantastic experience! The low student-teacher ratio gives teachers the time to individualize everything! Every day when I'd pick up my son, I would see Ruth talking with a parent or myself about milestones being made. It felt like private tutoring. They appreciate kids that don't fit in the standard box and helped me learn my own child's strengths and his preferred ways to learn. My boy is totally prepared for kindergarten, thanks to GradePower Learning. Ruth's and Mike's genuine love for kids, and teaching them, is obvious. So glad I discovered them, best summer decision!

Dave C.

My daughter has been going to GradePower Learning for a couple of months and she loves it. The staff is caring and competent, and the "boost" it has given her confidence is priceless. I look forward to seeing continued improvement in her academic achievement. Thank you GradePower Learning!

Tamra S.

GradePower Learning has been a great learning tool for Gavin. He is much more aware of when he is off task and has started correcting that behavior on his own. We are so grateful that his teachers have put forth so much effort to help this guy shine!

Rachel K.

The staff genuinely cares about each child's specific need and makes learning fun. I love the environment and after 7 hrs in school, my daughter gets excited to go to GradePower Learning. Thank you guys for everything.

Angie K.

GradePower Learning is amazing! My daughter has shown mind-blowing improvement in focus, math, reading, and spelling. I seriously cannot thank you enough Michael Howard and Ruth Hall for your dedication to children and their success scholastically. What I appreciate the most about GradePower Learning, compared to other tutoring programs, is how they do not put every child in the same box for learning and realize the individual needs of their students.

Susie M.

Last summer I had an opportunity to visit with my stepdaughter who is the Education Director with GradePower Learning in Meridian, Idaho. I found the information that she shared with me very interesting and also very hopeful. My grandson, who lives in Colorado, has struggled with school from the first grade and was headed into his senior year with a low C average. Later that summer, I was with my family in Colorado and shared the information about GradePower Learning. My grandson and I then set an appointment with the Education Director of GradePower Learning in Aurora. Danielle took a lot of time explaining the program, and when we left, I could hear the excitement in my grandson’s voice. Zach had been to numerous “tutoring centers” in the past which turned out to be a place where he could get help with his homework but did not give him learning skills he could use outside of the tutoring center. GradePower Learning tests each student to figure out where they need help, and from the testing, they develop an individualized plan. The thing that we all loved about GradePower Learning is that they teach their students how to learn. Zach has learned how to take notes, how to study, and how to use his time more efficiently and effectively. Since attending GradePower Learning this school year, Zach has gone from a marginal student to an honor roll student. Our only regret is that we didn’t know about GradePower Learning 12 years ago.

Cheryl K.

Kayla read The Cat in the Hat to both me and Papa and she took it to school and read it to her class. She was so proud of herself. My husband and I were blown away at how incredible she did. Her teacher heaped lots of praise on her too. I can't believe how much she has improved in the short time that she has been coming to GradePower Learning Meridian. Thank you so much. It is wonderful to watch her glow with pride at her accomplishments.

Dawn C.

First of all, the peope who run this place are amazing! They really care about your child. As for my daughter, she has gained confidence, learned so much, and enjoys attending each session.

Crystal H.

GradePower Learning has helped my daughter in so many ways; she now has a positive attitude toward school, organization skills, learning skills and most importantly, self-confidence. The staff is amazing! They are so easy to talk to and genuinely want your kids to exceed. We are truly grateful we found them.

Sky M.

My husband and I were told two weeks before the end of the school year that our eighth-grade son was failing and would not graduate unless he completed a long list of missing assignments over two weekends. The summer before high school we found GradePower Learning and learned he had very poor organizational skills. This semester he has completed lessons with a tutor at GPL in time management, goal setting, project management, and organization, and started purging excess paperwork from his binder and using a planner. His grades are much improved and we are hopeful he can apply the skills learned here to all aspects of his life. Now we are wondering if he enjoys his tutoring time so much that he won't be willing to give it up! Thanks to the friendly staff at GradePower Learning, "fine" is no longer a term we use in our household!

Summer Learning!

 

Be ready for the next school year!

AVOID SUMMER BRAIN DRAIN

Studies have shown that learning momentum suffers major setbacks over summer break. Without structured learning routines, the brain loses many of the neural connections that it built during the school year. 

All Ages. All Grades. All Subjects.

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS COGNITIVE LEARNING?

Cognitive Learning is a type of learning that is active, constructive, and long-lasting. It engages students in the learning processes, teaching them to use their brains more effectively to make connections when learning new things.

WHAT DOES COGNITIVE LEARNING FOCUS ON?

This style of learning is a powerful alternative to the traditional classroom approach. Instead of focusing on memorization, cognitive learning builds on past knowledge. Students learn to make connections and reflect on the material—skills that help them become better learners.

BENEFITS OF COGNITIVE LEARNING

1) IMPROVES COMPREHENSION

Cognitive learning encourages students to take a hands-on approach to learning. This allows them to explore the material and develop a deeper understanding.

2) DEVELOPS PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS

The cognitive learning approach teaches students the skills they need to learn effectively. This helps students build transferable problem-solving and study skills that they can apply in any subject.

3) PROMOTES LONG-TERM LEARNING

Developing cognitive skills allows students to build upon previous knowledge and ideas. This teaches students to make connections and apply new concepts to what they already know.

4) IMPROVES CONFIDENCE

With a deeper understanding of topics and stronger learning skills, students can approach schoolwork with enthusiasm and confidence.

5) INSTILLS A LOVE OF LEARNING

FACTORS OF COGNITIVE LEARNING

Comprehension

Building cognitive learning skills teaches students how to learn more effectively. Students learn to do more than repeat what they have learned. They understand the “why” behind a topic and how it fits into a larger picture.

Memory

Unlike drill-and-kill memorization methods, cognitive learning helps students gain a deeper understanding of a subject. This improves recall in the long run, so students can build upon past knowledge.

Application

The cognitive learning approach gives students the chance to reflect on what they are learning and how it applies to other material. This helps students develop the problem-solving skills they need to create new connections between what they are learning.
