Your Box Learning believes that by focusing on their strengths, an exceptional learner can succeed and thrive in a mainstream school. To this end, we provide individualized counsel and tutoring to help parents and their exceptional learners leverage natural learning abilities and become effective self-advocates.
In other words, we help every learner find their own "learning box" - their own unique starting point that allows them to most easily and effectively process and absorb information. We then offer guidance as they integrate their own learning style into their mainstream classroom in a way that grows their confidence and independence and allows them to not only academically survive, but thrive.
To this end, we offer a variety of tutoring and advocacy services, customized to each exceptional learner's individual needs.
