"I cannot recommend this group enough to anyone who has a child struggling in school in general, or specifically due to dyslexia, dyscalculia, or any other number of learning disabiities. They implement the Orton Gillingham method with complete and total adherence to this highly effective method of teaching children who are struggling with reading difficulties (specifically those with dyslexia).  The demonstrable progress kids see as they work with these tutors is invaluable, as is the self-confidence the kids develop as they observe how far they've come. The tutors exhibit the highest level of dedication and compassion for the children they work with and strike the necessary and effective balance between structure and flexibility. They work with you and your child to develop the trust these kids require, so that they feel comfortable taking academic risks, allowing them to learn, grow and ultimately see their full potential. They will work with you to find the tutor that is the right fit for you and your child. They are a wealth of knowledge and an invaluable resource for you and your family. I cannot recommend this group enough."

"We worked with LINKZ to prepare for the dreaded standardized admission tests and could not be more thrilled with the experience or the outcome. From the very beginning, it was clear that LINKZ was not using a canned formula or 'process' for test prep, but rather took the time to learn about the student, their particular needs, and strengths and weaknesses. With this information, we worked together to decide on the best test option and the most productive ways to prepare. Over the course of close to 10 months of work, this personal and caring approach yielded a great result that made my test taker proud of what they had accomplished. Our tutor's calm demeanor and effective teaching methods made the entire experience of test prep so easy. We will return to LINKZ in the future for any and all tutoring needs!"

"Our daughter, who has learning disabilities, but is also very bright, has been working with LINKZ for over a year and a half now. LINKZ has made a significant difference in her learning success in middle school, and we plan to continue working with them through her high school years. With their insightful understanding of the learning needs and challenges facing students with learning disabilities, as well as an understanding of the emotional impact of these challenges, they've been able to cultivate an important connection with our daughter."

"I cannot begin to describe how much LINKZ helped my daughter transition through middle school and high school. They started out with just math, and became my daughter's tutor on all subjects. LINKZ helped her achieve an awesome SAT score. Their ability to adapt approaches to the specific needs of their students is amazing. I am pretty sure my daughter wished they taught her all of her subjects, and I am pretty sure that she would have understood them better if they had."

A Letter from the Director & CEO

Welcome!

I firmly believe that your child's education isn't just about what they see and experience in the classroom. How they work and thrive outside the school is an equally integral part of their success. At LINKZ (pronounced "links"), we know how hard it can be to find the support that bolsters the multifaceted nature of your child. The stresses and strains that accompany academic struggles can impact the whole family and uncover problems unrelated to the classroom. If a family wants to thrive as a whole, each individual must thrive.

Our solutions focus on and address both academic and emotional realms, for both short- and long-term goals. Every day, we work to strengthen the links between child and caretaker(s), home and classroom, educational and social-emotional.

From my family - Lisa, (I), Noah, Kevin, and Zak - to yours, we hope to see you at LINKZ!

~ Jake
