We take pride in our work.

At LINKZ, our goal is to provide start-to-finish guidance, education, mentoring, coaching, and counseling.

What does our process look like?

We do things differently than other educational or tutoring agencies. Looking at each and every student holistically, we provide state-of-the-art intakes, action plans that are tailor-made, and a team of diagnosticians, educators, and counselors to address your needs.

Free phone consultation

When you reach out to us, we'll provide a free over-the-phone consultation to determine where your family's journey at LINKZ begins. Our office managers are trained in Orton-Gillingham and Executive Functioning coaching; from the ground up, we understand learning differences and the myriad impacts they have.


Whether you're coming to us for reading or writing support, Executive Functioning coaching, a college or career consult, our Test Prep Package, or just to keep your child ahead in their calculus class, we'll connect you with one of our Educational Diagnosticians for a full consultation. You'll receive a plethora of information and a comprehensive plan that gets you or your child from A to Z.

Working with a team

When you work with LINKZ, you work with over 40 dedicated educators, counsellors, case managers, and support staff. The team assigned to you stays in constant collaboration to ensure that you or your child is receiving the highest quality academic support possible.

Remediation, enrichment, and everything in between

There is no shortage of subject and content areas that we address. We work with students and families across the globe, from five-years-old to ninety-five-years-old. We teach people how to read, help students walk across the stage at graduation, find the right career for you, and help bring stability and a sense of ease at the dinner table. If you're tired of looking for an agency that's more than just helping your child finish their homework (though that's important too!)... look no further.

Community support and long-lasting relationships

LINKZ is an official vendor for educational services and a preferred choice for families in Howard County, Maryland (ranked the 2023 Best School District in Maryland, and a top 3% school district nationwide). Our pledge is to help as many communities as we can, providing tailored support to each and every family that walks through our door.

After a free over-the-phone consultation, we’ll schedule you for an in-person assessment. Our Educational Diagnostician will walk you through the evaluation process and conduct industry-standard evaluations (see below). We will then construct a tailored action plan for your child. We’ll match your child with the tutors, counselors, and advocates who we think will spark the most effective results. Our 40+ Academic Specialists are highly trained, using both multi-sensory and personalized techniques. Our work is always one-on-one so you can be assured that your child is receiving the attention and care that they deserve. Whether you wish to meet at one of our offices, at your child’s school, or online via Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime, we’ll be there! We use cutting-edge assessments like:

Woodcock Johnson IV • Woodcock Reading Mastery Tests (WRMT-III) • TOWL-4 • CTOPP-2 • Gray Oral Reading Tests (GORT-5) • Nelson-Denny Reading Test (NDRT) • PAT-2: NU • RAN/RAS • TOMA 3

Developed by the Director & CEO of LINKZ, our Executive Functioning Consultation focuses exclusively on the myriad ways that executive dysfunctioning impacts you and your family. Following an online consultation, and using data collected from you and your child through the most current inventories available, we provide customized reports that contain:

Observations and qualitative data • Data and interpretative analysis from BRIEF-2 or BRIEF-A Inventories • A customized, step-by-step treatment plan • Recommendations for how you can support your child at home

IEP / 504 Review

At LINKZ, we take great care in ensuring that every student is given the necessary resources to succeed. Our Diagnosticians are well-versed with IEPs (Individualized Education Program) and 504 Plans, and can review them to ensure your child is receiving the proper accommodations and supports they need to succeed. We love open communication and collaboration between all stakeholders involved in a student’s education: teachers, administrators, therapists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and advocates.

Classroom Observations

We know that students act, behave, and perform differently inside the classroom. That's why it's so important to collect concrete, meaningful data through in-class observations. Our in-class observations involve sending an experienced Diagnostician to sit in on a class session and carefully observe the students during their learning activities. Our Diagnosticians have been trained in identifying signs and symptoms of potential learning differences, such as attention deficits, hyperactivity, poor memory retention, or visual / auditory processing deficits. Using that information, we're able to develop a plan to support structured interventions and individualized supports, as well as make recommendations for personalized accommodations.

Homeschool Curriculum Implementation

Given the long-lasting impact that COVID-19 continues to have on school systems, personalized instruction is more important than ever. At LINKZ, we're here to support your homeschooling needs; we can help plan, support, supplement, and implement any curriculum you apply for and receive from your county. Whether through the school system or through homeschool instruction, our mission is always to provide specialized, tailored, one-on-one education.

Educational + Psychoemotional Consultation

At LINKZ, we believe in addressing the interconnectedness of your child’s life: at school, at home, and socially. If you believe that anxiety, depression, or negative psychoemotional components may be affecting your child’s Executive Functioning skills, you and your family deserve to feel empowered with strategies, recommendations, and solutions. Following a two hour in-person or online consultation with your family, and using data collected from you and your child through state-of-the-art inventories, we provide customized reports that contain:

Observations and qualitative data • Data and interpretative analysis from BRIEF-2 and BRIEF-A Inventories • A customized, step-by-step treatment plan that addresses both Executive Functioning and psychoemotional needs • Recommendations for how you can support your child at home • Referrals for psychoemotional services provided by professionals suited for your child’s location and specific needs

College + Career Consultation

Choosing the right college is a delicate balancing act - considering finances, location, accommodations, programming, extracurriculars… the list goes on. We’re honored to have helped many students and their families find that perfect fit by researching schools and tailoring the results to your family.For older students (either out of high school, still in college, or a recent college graduate), we’re happy to provide support in finding a career. We use industry-standard assessments like the MBTI + Strong and CliftonStrengths to determine possible career paths.

We understand learning.

We come from a wide variety of backgrounds, disciplines, and careers, and have worked with over 1,500 families since 2019. Here are some questions you might have before starting with us:

Does LINKZ work with all students, or just those struggling with learning differences?

While LINKZ was originally founded with the specific goal of helping students with learning differences (special focus on the three Ds: dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia), over time we have expanded our focus to working with all types of students and families, encompassing a wide variety of learning styles and interests. We believe that every student can benefit from personalized, one-on-one instruction, and we strive to provide the support and resources necessary for students to reach their full potential. Our team of experienced educators and specialists are well-equipped to teach subjects ranging from math and science to art and music, and we are committed to fostering a love of learning in all of our students.

Is LINKZ a "tutoring center"?

LINKZ is more than a "tutoring center" because we specialize in providing a range of services aimed at enhancing the overall academic and personal growth of students. As a full-service educational agency:

• We provide consultations, whereby we work collaboratively with both students and their parents to identify areas where they need academic support and guidance.

• We offer observations where we observe students in their learning environments to identify the best strategies for supporting their academic progress.

• We provide guidance and counseling services where we work with students - and their families - to help them overcome various academic, personal, and social issues that may affect their lives.

• We provide strengths-based, de-pathologizing support, advice, and strategies to help students navigate their lives as students and as family members.

• We help students develop essential life skills such as time management, goal setting, and organization, to achieve academic success.

• We provide support and guidance that empowers students to become self-directed learners and achieve their academic goals.

In short, LINKZ offers a wide range of services that cater to the holistic development of students beyond just traditional tutoring. Our services aim to improve their academic, social, and emotional well-being, making us a comprehensive resource for families seeking academic support and guidance.
