Mission

Smarten Up is founded on a pretty basic principle -  learning should be fun.   While school is not always easy, and understanding new material is often difficult, we believe that every child is capable of learning. All it takes is creative instruction. 

Every mind is unique; no two think the same thoughts, feel the same feelings, or ask the same questions.  That is why we believe that instruction should be catered to the individual.  Sure, every child needs to learn to read and write, to understand math, and to know about the world's history and the science behind its existence.  But why should we expect every student to learn all of that the same way?  Today's increasingly crowded and competitive classrooms do not allow much room for individualized learning; teachers are left with no choice but to target instruction to the median.  Thus, gifted and talented children are not challenged to rise to their full potential, while too many other students are left with low self-esteem as a result of not "getting it."

That's where we come in.  Smarten Up is dedicated to making your bright child even brighter; whether her exceptional mind is bored with standard curriculum, or she is having a difficult time learning in the classroom, a Smarten Up teacher  will create a customized and engaging learning solution to meet your child's unique needs.
