The result? Better grades and greater confidence. In other words, success!

All Ages. All Grades. All Subjects

Enrollment Process

Are you ready to invest in your child’s future success? Are you ready to take your child from struggling to thriving and provide him or her with the challenge he or she needs to soar?

Then you are ready for GradePower Learning.

Our unique learning program will equip your child with the confidence and self-esteem to learn and succeed at anything–from college to a successful career. It’s more than learning for school–it’s learning that lasts a lifetime.

The GradePower Learning Process involves four important steps—The Dynamic Assessment, Program Recommendation, Active Learning Sessions and Regular Program Reviews—to put your child on the path to success.

 

HERE’S HOW THE GRADEPOWER LEARNING PROCESS WORKS:

 

STEP 1: THE DYNAMIC ASSESSMENT™
This may be the most enjoyable test your child has ever taken! In this low-pressure session, one of our dedicated staff members will administer the Dynamic Assessment™ to identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses in regards to his or her cognitive and academic strengths. Our assessments usually take about two hours and assess whether your child is at, below, or above grade level—and what type of learner he or she may be! The results paint a holistic picture of your child’s academic and cognitive skills and aptitude.

 

STEP 2: CUSTOMIZED PROGRAM RECOMMENDATION
We’ll sit down with you and review the results. Based on the results, we'll recommend a customized learning plan that addresses weak academic skills, nurtures academic strengths, and builds confidence and true understanding in a way that no other tutoring plan can.

 

We also determine the number of coaching hours needed to produce better grades and better motivation. Our program not only addresses core subject areas, but it also integrates GradePower Learning strategies with school. We create a program just for your child; the curriculum is tailored to your child’s needs in math, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and writing. This is how GradePower Learning Louisville works with you and your child to produce lasting and meaningful change.

 

STEP 3: ACTIVE LEARNING SESSIONS
Now that your child is “in on the plan”, the relationship with his or her academic coach will be off to a great start. Working in small groups under the coach’s personal direction, your child’s training sessions will be filled with fun, lively discussion and a lot of celebrating. We celebrate success, but we also celebrate mistakes as opportunities to learn. After only a few sessions, you may begin to notice a change in your child’s mood, confidence, self-esteem, and attitude toward school.

 

STEP 4: ONGOING PROGRAM REVIEWS
Our regularly scheduled Lesson Plan Reviews will keep you consistently aware of your child’s progress on our shared journey to success. We’ll also let you know of any changes to your child’s program. While you’re free to call us anytime with questions or feedback, the Program Reviews are events you can add to your calendar; sort of our version of a report card. Lastly, we will connect with your child's teachers (with your permission) to form a partnership with them in order to collectively and collaboratively work with your child!

What Parents & Students Are Saying

My daughter was really struggling in math. GradePower Learning was willing to work with us to meet our needs. After just a few weeks she increased her MAP score by 19 points! Highly recommend GradePower Learning. Our daughter’s tutor is excellent and very good at working with her.

Robert J.

My daughters have received/are receiving ACT prep and AP Physics tutoring services. Susan and her staff are professional, knowledgeable, and caring (and flexible with scheduling). The center is clean and well organized. The services are very specific to the needs of the students and have been very effective in helping my girls to be even more successful - significant improvement on the ACT and better understanding of physics material. It’s our go-to for results!

Lennette S.

In just 6 weeks of tutoring, my daughter's ACT math score improved 3 points!

Beth M.

L got her scores and she did great for a sophomore. She got 1330. 660 on English and 670 on math. Their website shows it as 98 percentile and projects it to be 760 760 when takes it for real as a junior. She was very happy with it! Thx for helping her!

BP

My daughter did ACT tutoring with GradePower Learning. The tutors really helped her do well on the test. The tutoring has also benefited her in her AP classes at school. I recommend GradePower Learning for every student!

My son is going to GradePower Learning from last 2 months for ACT preparation. He learned all the strategies for the test and I can see very good progress in his first ACT test score. I will highly recommend GradePower Learning to everyone. It is really affordable with flexible hours. Also, tutors and administrative staffs are very friendly and qualified.

SS

My daughter was going to a private tutor to prepare for the ACT. We switched to GradePower Learning Louisville and after 1 session she was already learning new methods. She says that she is learning so much more and feels better prepared for the ACT. Mrs Susan is very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended.

Keith S.

I really like how I was able to learn more about the ACT and develop strategies to better my score and gain experience through practice.

SC

My daughter was falling behind in reading and writing. We came to GradePower Learning of Louisville to get her back on track. The staff was patient and positive with her, even when she was not. I’ve seen a change in her attitude toward school. She is a more confident student. She now has had all A’s for the last three grading periods. GradePower Learning has worked wonders for her.

Natalya R.

Big, big thanks to GradePower Learning! My daughter has gone from D's in math last year to A's this year. I love the strategies they have given her to help her in more than just math. I have found a partner to help me in homeschooling my children! You will not be disappointed to call for help TODAY!

Angie P.

I loved it here. I learned more in my 7 classes then I have in my first semester in senior year math. They fully prepared me for the math act and worked with me on my math mid term. My tutor was also super nice and a good teacher!

What's New at Louisville

GradePower Learning has programs for all kinds of learners—the student struggling in math, the gifted child who hasn’t been challenged, or the teenager seeking a better ACT or SAT score.

We believe it’s possible for children to grow smarter! GradePower Learning has been nurturing children’s curiosity for 30 years and we’ve helped thousands of children improve their motivation and earn better grades. We can help yours, too!

 

THE STRUGGLING STUDENT

If your child is struggling to keep up, you may not know why. You may wonder, “Is it a lack of confidence? Is it an auditory weakness? Is it a weakness in problem-solving or reading comprehension?”

If your child has been getting bad grades or is behind grade level, here are two facts that will make you feel better right away:

  1. It’s not your fault.
  2. Your child CAN learn.

So many parents turn to GradePower Learning after other methods haven’t helped. Forcing your child to “buckle down and study harder” doesn’t work. Neither do traditional tutors, endless drills, or rote memorization.

At GradePower Learning, we understand that, besides your child’s own academic struggles, there is more pressure than ever on students to demonstrate critical thinking in all subject areas. Students are expected to show that they are building proficiency in academic and cognitive skills throughout the year.

Let us figure out the cause of your child’s learning struggles and how to help your child rediscover the joy of learning.

 

WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT

We’re way beyond tutoring! We don’t just provide homework help to prepare for the next assignment or test. We help strengthen the foundation—cognitive and academic skills--which can be used for years to come!

We create unique learning programs for children so that they can reach their full potential. Our programs are designed to meet four important goals:

  1. Encourage independence and imagination.
  2. Develop cognitive and academic skills.
  3. Promote striving for excellence.
  4. Teach children to celebrate learning.

 

THE COLLEGE ADVANTAGE

Competition is stiff to get into the top colleges and universities, and tuition costs are rising. Even if your child is at grade level, earns good grades, and performs well on the ACT or SAT, getting into an Ivy League school or earning a big scholarship can be tough. That’s why enrichment tutoring is more important today than ever! Plus, it’s never too early to make sure your child is ready for success in college.

If your child is earning good grades but complains of being bored, then it’s the right time to discover if your child is testing at a higher grade level. Simple tutoring will not enrich gifted children because they are just reviewing the same textbook they already understand. They shouldn’t be stuck reviewing knowledge that has already been mastered.

Our proven enrichment planners can take your gifted child to the next level and beyond. At GradePower Learning, we’ll introduce new, more challenging concepts while we continue to fortify cognitive learning skills. This way, we’ll not only keep your child on the path to success but keep your child ahead of the pack.

Whether your child is struggling or wants to get the edge in college admissions, we can help!
