Testimonials

"You set realistic goals that children are able to achieve, and you provide them with a sense of self-worth. Your involvement with the teachers at school has been most helpful. My daughter always wants to come to you. She looks forward to learning, and knows that she is treated with respect and kindness".

"You have made an incredible difference in the quality of our daughter's life. When we brought her to you, we were distraught. You diagnosed the problem, directed her study, and personally stayed with her through all the phases of her development. Now, in 7th grade, she is a student in Honors classes. What crowns this is that now she loves reading both for school and for pleasure."

"I am calling you from Los Angeles. I wonder if you remember our family. I can’t believe that you gave our son a whole course of instruction FREE (48 hours) when he had not met his goals. We are so excited now. He’s just been accepted to USC. It wouldn’t have happened without you. THANK YOU!!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do we get started?
A. Contact us to book an appointment for a diagnostic test.

Q. When will we get the results?
A. Usually within a week. You will have a meeting with the examiner who will interpret all the testing, discuss individual goals for your child, and will recommend an attendance schedule.

Q. How often do most students attend?
A. That depends on the student's goals and the speed at which they need to be met. An average attendance schedule is twice weekly.

Q. How long do most students stay with you?
A. Again everything is individualized. Some students require two to three months of support. Others may stay for four to six months. We are delighted to support long-term students as they transition from elementary school to the greater challenges of middle and high school.

Q. Does my child have to miss school to come for classes?
A. No. Students attend our program in the after-school hours.

Q. Can my child do homework with you?
A. We will review homework topics with your child. If help or re-teaching is needed, we'll offer support here, making sure to present new information through the teaching style that is best for your child. If the student is confident with the homework, then we'll suggest that it is completed at home.

Q. Can my child receive 1:1 teaching?
A. Yes. We will recommend 1:1 sessions for some students. Young students who have few independent skills will benefit from a short period of 1:1 teaching. Soon they'll be proud to demonstrate that they can achieve with greater independence. ADD children may need a period of 1:1 services. Once the student learns to increase his/her own attention span, it is beneficial gradually to introduce another child nearby, in preparation for the classroom setting. An essential goal for all students is to prepare them for school performance - that means the ability to work successfully alongside other students in the classroom.

Q. Will you talk to my child's teachers at school?
A. We will ask for your permission to have contact with your child's classroom teachers. Then we will share the information that we have about your child, and discuss how we can work together to benefit your child's performance. We will report back to you on all our school contacts.

Q. How often will we meet with you to learn about our child's progress?
A. We suggest a meeting or a call after every 12 hours of instruction.

Q Do you really offer an open-ended commitment? What does that mean?
A. We are committed to the goals that we develop for your student. After a course of instruction, all must agree that he/she has met those goals - teachers at school, parents, tutors and directors at the California Learning Center. Progress is also confirmed by standardized testing. If there are any goals that have not been met, the student will continue receiving instruction from us, at no charge, until the goal / goals are met (however long it may take!)
