TLC provides one-on-one tutoring in all subjects, year round, to students ages 5 to adult. Our tutors also specialize academic therapy, a style of tutoring and coaching for students with learning disabilities.  Reading instruction is provided by utilizing a program using the Orton-Gillingham Method. Academic coaching and academic therapy have proven to not only help an individual improve in their academics but also to improve study skills, visual and auditory processing and memory skills, remediate learning disabilities, and to teach self monitoring, organization, and behavior modification.  


Every summer we offer a Study Skills Workshop. This year it will be held Aug. 6-10. The workshop provides coaching on how to get in shape for the new school year.  Students rising 4th thru 10th grade will learn to improve study habits, organization, and test and note taking skills, in addition to discovering more about their particular learning style. Workbook and snacks included. Register today, space is limited.

At Tidewater Learning Center we administer Cognitive-Educational Evaluations including, but not limited to, IQ testing, achievement in math, writing, spelling, word reading, and comprehension, visual and auditory memory skills, visual-motor integration, Autism Spectrum and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Questionnaires.  Testing can be done as early as 2 years 6 months old.

"The Tidewater Learning Center was an incredible resource for both me and my child.  They did a wonderful job with the testing in helping me fully understand where our daughter may have learning challenges.  And then, they were able to meet her exactly where she needed support in those areas.  Marie and Christin were very accommodating with scheduling and the center itself is a fabulous facility.  The Learning Center definitely gets an A+!"
