Our goal is to provide Pre K through High School students in Dallas with the education and resources they need to believe in themselves and be successful in all areas of their lives. By focusing on teaching rather than tutoring, we are much more than just worksheets or drill and kill, we help children grow by scaffolding and supporting them along their academic journey. Utilizing a multi-sensory and hands-on approach, we use research based teaching strategies to teach kids and build a strong academic foundation. Rooted in diagnostic assessment, we are able to choose a systematic curriculum that is tailored to best meet each and every child’s specific needs and learning styles ranging from dyslexia to ADHD. Our goal at I Heart Learning is to create a fun and creative environment to foster a passion for reading and to build self-confidence.
