About the Creators
The Learning Edge is a tutoring company based in Connecticut. We have two Connecticut branch offices - a Westport office and a Hamden office - and we work online with students across the globe via SKYPE.
Our tutors specialize in standardized test preparation, academic subject tutoring, and general study skill building. We have worked with thousands of students in preparation for the SAT, ACT, Subject Tests, APs, ISEE, SSAT, and classroom exams.
The tutors at the Learning Edge take a holistic approach to the test preparation process. We believe that it is not enough to simply teach our students the material that they need for an exam; it is equally important to teach them how to approach that test "mentally" as well. Prepared students know not only how to answer the questions, but also how to access those answers under even the most difficult environmental conditions. Mental toughness, confidence, and comfort with the material are key components of a successful standardized test result.
Every student has a different learning style and different needs. One of our favorite parts of the job is figuring out what will work best for each student; it's a problem solving process that we take very seriously. We get to know each student and what makes him or her tick intellectually, which allows us to design a program that will be useful and rewarding to the student.
We know our methods work not only because we see our students achieve dramatic improvements in their grades and test scores, but also because we see them grow intellectually and often personally. During our time with our students we strive to teach them skills that they will take with them to college and beyond.
