Helping Students Learn
We strive to help students overcome hurdles by providing the highest quality learning support possible.
Providing educational therapy, one-on-one tutoring, group sessions, assessment, and case management, we offer a unique array of services to support students and families in navigating the challenges of school.
We provide a variety of services at our offices in Oakland, CA, in schools, in homes, and via video conferencing.
We at Strategies for Learning think of ourselves as a lifeline for students, offering hope based on solid expertise. We put our knowledge to work helping students lighten the academic load.
At the heart of our work lies the student’s unique learning history and experience. Our team will tap into our wealth of experience, creating a plan that’s tailored to the needs and goals of our students and their families.
With a highly trained staff, Strategies for Learning can help a student of any age develop individual strategies for making learning more manageable, more efficient, and ultimately more satisfying.
