At Educational Breakthroughs it is our goal to keep the lines of communication open at all times during the tutoring process.

What People Are Saying About Us

“I tried to help my son with homework, but so much has changed since I went to school. Then, Educational Breakthroughs came to my rescue! No more fighting about homework in our house! The tutors know how to help my son when I don't!"

Homework Help

Would you like to eliminate Homework hassles and stress for both you and the student in your home? Enroll your student in Educational Breakthroughs Homework Help and let our tutors take the "head-ache" out of homework.

After School Homework Help is available for all grades and all subjects. Students can also choose to receive tutoring at our Tutoring Center or Online.

The 15-minute sessions can be used ANYTIME after school during our normal hours. Typically, our students utilize Homework Help when they remain at the center after their 1-hour tutoring session to practice learned skills.  During these sessions, students complete homework assignments (from either the tutor or school) on their own and have the opportunity to interact with nearby tutors if they need help.  Independent of private tutoring, Homework Help is a great option for students needing assistance completing special projects, completing assignments or preparing for tests after school.

In addition to establishing better study habits, students learn to improve organization and time management skills.  Homework Help is the ideal solution to reinforce learning and provide accountability.  Whether the student is working alone, with a tutor, or with other students, it’s an affordable and productive time that maximizes learning.

Creative Learning Solutions (CLS)
to Overcome Learning Challenges
(Orton-Gillingham Based)

Our Goal:

To help students develop tools of independent learning in the classroom and in life.

Understanding how to help your student learn begins with understanding the student. Orton-Gillingham and NILD (National Institute For Learning Development) have developed programs to help both educators and students get results. Below is an excerpt from the NILD web site to begin understanding learning disabilities.

"People with learning disabilities have average to superior intelligence. Many are gifted in math, science, fine arts, journalism, and other creative fields. A list of such people would include Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Winston Churchill and many others who have changed the course of our world.

However, their tremendous strengths are offset by noticeable weaknesses - an inability to read or write, memory problems, and difficulty understanding what is heard or seen. These difficulties stem, not from a physical problem with the eyes or ears, but rather from the basic neurological functioning of the brain." - www.nild.net [Visit NILD or Orton-Gillingham to learn more or contact us today to speak with us in person about any concerns you may have.]

Ask yourself:

  • Does your child struggle with memory, focus, reading, spelling and math concepts?
  • Have you tried all kinds of curriculum and your child still isn't getting it?
  • Do you suspect your child might have a learning disability?

If you answered "Yes" to any of the questions above, then he/she could be a good candidate for our Creative Learning Solutions Program.

Please keep in mind that Educational Therapy is not tutoring; rather it is an intensive program that focuses on retraining the way the brain thinks using a variety of techniques to strengthen student deficits and develop new pathways of thinking by stimulating communication between the right and left brain.

Summer Programs

Did you know?
During summer vacation students lose about 25% of the information learned in the previous school year. Even if your student IS learning throughout the school year, summer retention is a huge problem. Let Educational Breakthroughs help by providing both remedial and enrichment programs during the summer months to maximize retention and help your student excel.

Provides summer instruction for students who need additional instruction to strengthen skills to prepare for the following year in the areas such as: reading, writing, spelling, English, basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, science, biology, chemistry, physics, social studies, geography, and foreign languages.

Summer Camp Programs

We make summer learning exciting, fun and memorable. Classes are scheduled for all ages (children and adults) throughout the summer in various areas such as drawing, painting, photography, foreign languages, speed reading, science experiments, hands-on math classes. Class availability, size, and location are dependent upon interest.

Parental Training/Support Groups

Educational Breakthroughs is willing to organize support groups as interest arises.
