The idea of GradePower Learning® began in the 1980s when the founding group of cognitive scientists and educators gathered to discuss the latest trends in education and particularly the emerging science of cognition — learning about learning or how the mind learns. The challenge was to find a better way to teach and to test students using the latest brain science. Mindless repetition until mastery was still the order of the day (as it often is today), and the group of founders knew there was a better way to teach so kids could learn and not just memorize: a way to turn on the power of the active mind.
What emerged was the proprietary GradePower Learning® System of Learning and Cognitive Development which involved inventing a new way to teach, which we called Interactive Coaching, a new way to test, which we named a Dynamic Diagnostic Assessment and, finally, a whole new curriculum that embedded the science of cognition right into the scope and sequence of the material. With this innovation, a new era in teaching and tutoring was born.
Finally, there existed a fresh approach to instruction that put the learner first. Education has always been about preparing our children to become functional, successful, and happy adults with self-esteem that was earned, not faked or awarded simply for showing up. This innovation ushered in an approach that cared whether or not children actually understood instead of just caring about them memorizing enough material to get a good grade. With the Cognitive Development model in place, students began to not only get better grades, but to also develop a deep and profound sense of confidence and self-esteem as learners — and they were having fun!
That’s The GradePower Learning® Way.

MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE TO STUDENTS
When students come to GradePower Learning®, they are often facing challenges in one, or in many, areas of their life. Whether it’s a particular subject not making sense, or feeling overwhelmed by school in general, students and their parents come to GradePower Learning® looking for solutions, but what they end up with is much more than quick school answers.
When students leave GradePower Learning® they are no longer struggling, but feel capable and confident in their abilities, knowing that they are equipped with skills necessary to tackle challenges—any challenges, whether in school or in life—head on.
