Our Services
In-Home Tutoring

Our weekly academic coaching is all about quality and convenience. Each week our in-home tutors work directly with your student to ensure they are not only mastering their coursework, but also developing the confidence and character traits they need to succeed in any facet of their life. Contact us today to schedule a free initial session for your student.

Test Prep

Our ACT and SAT test prep is based on the science of memory formation and retention. We work with students to not only conquer the content and strategies crucial to achieving their best score, but also give them the skills and tools to create deeper and longer-lasting memories around any schoolwork they tackle. Contact us today to learn more about our test prep services.

College Counseling

Every student is a unique combination of interests, passions, ideas, and experiences. That is why our college counseling starts with guided self-discovery. Our job is to help students discover who they are, find colleges that match their personality, and support them through their applications. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help your student find their best-fit school.

Thank you for everything! You guys were wonderful tutors for our sons and they did well in school because of your support.

Lisa M.Bellevue High School Parent

Thanks to all of her tutor's hard work, Lauren's pre-calculus grade has improved from a C+ to an A. She will end up with a 4.0 for the semester and we could not have done it without all the great help from Learning Professionals. Can’t thank you guys enough for all of your help. It has made all the difference.

Denis M.Shorewood High School Parent

We were very fortunate to have found Lauren last year. Our daughter was struggling in AP Chem and Pre-Calc. She felt very discouraged after trying hard on her own and going to school tutorials that were not as effective as we had hoped. Lauren came highly recommended by a close friend and helped our daughter turn her grades around. We would definitely recommend Learning Professionals to anyone looking for tutoring help!
