Your dedicated partner in learning
Our owner and founder, Laura Platt, has over twenty years of experience in the field of education as both a teacher and tutor. As a busy mom herself, Laura fully understands the demands placed on today’s families and how valuable convenience can be. She hopes to help other parents take at least one thing off the endless “to do” list by providing exceptional educational support to students wherever it’s most convenient for them.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Laura has attended school, worked as a teacher, and raised children here. She understands the educational and social environment families are operating in today-as well as the tremendous pressure felt by both students and parents.
After earning a BS in Marketing from Penn State University, Ms. Platt worked for several large corporations including Walt Disney World and Wal-Mart. Her time with Disney reinforced her love of all things creative as well as her desire to work with children. Shortly after, she went back to school to The College of New Jersey to earn her Master’s Degree in Education. In 1995 she secured a job at one of the top private schools in the state and taught second grade for many years.
Ms. Platt began tutoring older students while teaching second grade. Having always been skilled in math, she enjoyed helping middle school and high school aged children improve their confidence and reach their academic goals. After starting her own family, she began tutoring students to prepare for the SAT and developed her own successful method for increasing students’ scores which helped her to build a solid business by word of mouth. She has continued to tutor students of all ages while raising a family and looks forward to helping families and students meet their academic goals.
