Educational Therapy

Our learning specialists balance the need for step-by-step, direct instruction with metacognition and open-ended, creative thinking. For instance, rather than telling you how to solve a problem and then giving you a similar problem to solve, we help you discover a wealth of strategies that you can choose from and reflect on how a strategy helped you to solve a problem.

How is educational therapy different from tutoring?
Tutoring is enough for students who need to hear the explanation one more time, see it done another way, or simply need extra practice. Educational therapy is an individualized program that strengthens the underlying cause(s) of the learning struggle and helps students how to learn. It is holistic in nature. It considers all aspects of your learning style, environment, background, temperament, and goals. Educational Therapy helps makes sense of information within a contextual framework, allowing for integration and application.
