What Parents & Students Are Saying

Our past experience with Mike (coaching math for SAT) and most recent experience with Janki (coaching in physics) is excellent. Both coaches do a thorough job of explaining the material and truly show a vested interest in helping the students. It is a joy when your student returns from a session enlightened. We appreciate the help and positive attitude! Best Regards,


I have nothing but the highest regard for GradePower Learning Palatine. They have been an absolute life changer with respect to my daughter’s education. She was homeschooled during junior high. During that time, GradePower Learning worked with her extensively. When she did the entrance examinations for Fremd High School, she had almost perfect scores. Thank you GradePower Learning!

GradePower Learning Palatine has done wonders for my kids. I see their reading, writing and math scores going up. Niki got two tests - each one she got a 100%. Wow! To think she was getting "C"s and now "A". Warmest regards


I just wanted to share some great news and we have GradePower Learning to thank. My son Jonathan got an A on his most recent math test and according to him, it’s because he has a great tutor at GradePower Learning that has helped him understand the material so much better than the first semester! He’s actually raised his grade from a C to a high B and has a chance at an A! Thanks so much for all your support! Best Regards,

My son has been coming to GradePower Learning in Palatine, IL since 2013. They have done a phenomenal job helping him succeed in school. The tutors here are all experienced with degrees and are great with kids! My son has some special needs and the staff have been so accommodating. I definitely would recommend GradePower Learning to any parent wanting their child to improve in academics. Thank you GradePower Learning! Barbara O.

My children have been attending GradePower Learning weekly for two years. They started tutoring to support and supplement their current classes. Although I am math person, I wasn’t able to effectively assist my children with their homework or studies, as I always heard "but that is not the way we learned it!” GradePower Learning's coaches have helped ease tension at home and provide the needed answer to questions and offer explanations that I wasn’t able to provide. Grades improved, but more importantly, my children understood the problems and knew what they were doing. My son has ADHD, and as a result, doesn’t always understand concepts in the fast-paced educational environment. GradePower Learning was able to fill the gaps in his understanding, and allow him to be more confident and independent. We went from questioning whether to lower his level to him succeeding in the class. He not only was able to stay at the level assigned but also rarely requires additional time for exam completion and has maintained a B+ or higher grade in his class. The teachers at GradePower Learning have fun with the kids and get to know them in order to help identify any gaps in their comprehension or basic skill set. Sandy, the program director, is very knowledgeable and always available to talk about your child’s progress. She insists on progress reports. Sandy has vast knowledge on the learning process, executive functioning skills, and methods to apply and teach these skills. She and her staff perform periodic reviews of each student's progress. I have found Sandy’s willingness to listen to the parent’s concerns extremely valuable in changing up the coaching process as needed to address concerns of skill refreshers. My children really enjoy the coaches and activities that GradePower Learning offers, and I enjoy their confidence and how they have matured in their learning and study skills. Cheryl G.-P.
