What Parents & Students Are Saying

"GradePower is amazing! My daughter has shown mind blowing improvement with 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,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.

GradePower 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 daughter has been going to GradePower 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!

Tamra S.

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 get home from work and my son wants to show me his new (GradePower) shirt, and tell me all about his class today :) I smile ear to ear knowing he has a love for learning. GradePower 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.

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 high Kid - 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.

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.

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 counsellor 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!
