Individualized Tutoring and Test Prep (Best of Thumbtack Winner)
2018 Top Pro
About this pro
We've structured Learning Period to function more as a team than a giant corporation. We truly get to know our customers in order to provide an optimal learning experience that is both flexible and effective. Our ability to pair students with a tutor that is available when they are is just the beginning. For our K-12 students, our aim is to forge bonds. Our tutors are assigned the same tutors for the semester, in order to foster a sense of trust, continuity, and rapport. Our adult students are not treated any differently! Regardless of age, we strive to provide a concierge-like atmosphere because we know it's truly about the customer's experience; there are plenty of options when it comes to selecting the right private tutor. The greatest thing about being in education is knowing that we've made a difference in both the long term, as well as short-term. For example, each of the students we've sent to Ivy League schools not only has experienced the joy of having a dream come true (short-term triumph) but will now be better equipped to serve the world at large - a long-term result of our services.
Customers rated this pro highly for value, punctuality, and work quality.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our work starts as soon as you call us. We take the initial phone call seriously, as it really helps in the decision to match a particular tutor to your student. In general, we make sure to select a tutor whose tutoring style is a match, rather than go strictly by that tutor's resume.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Learning Period favors hiring fully-credentialed teachers with anywhere from 3 to 5 years of verifiable classroom experience.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Test Prep services are the most requested - Learning Period tutoring improves students' grades in core classes, as well as provides instruction for high-stakes college admissions tests. In addition, we've worked with all grades (Kindergarten to 12th, undergraduate students, graduate students...) and all educational situations: last-minute test prep, home schooled actors and athletes, adult students going back to school, and of course, traditional k-12 students.
