The key to successful tutoring begins with the student!

How do you take a high achieving student to the next level?

How do you spot a learning disability versus a self-esteem issue?

At Strong Learning this is exactly what we do everyday!

Anyone can tutor a child, from high school students to a remote tutor in another country. When you hire Strong Learning, you’re not going to get just anyone.

Dr. Linda Silbert has an undergraduate degree in Behavioural Science, a Masters in School Counseling K-12 and a Doctorate in Administration & Educational Counseling. Everyday, she helps both exceptional and struggling students to overcome their individual hurdles to get to the next level of learning. Her success stems from her educational background and years of working with students at all levels. Not just anybody can help a student to achieve academic success as Dr. Linda can!

In fact, over the years, Dr. Linda has found that many students only need a few hours of instruction to get them back on the path of academic success! See what Dr. Linda has to say about the secret to school success in this short video.

The Strong Learning Method

Drs. Linda and Al Silbert have developed a method of teaching that is simple, organic, and produces results that are revolutionary. Following the nature of the student, the Strong Learning Method results in greater engagement and ultimately drives the neural change in the student that causes learning to happen.

The Strong Learning Method is rooted in each individual student and starts by assessing the student so the tutor knows exactly where to begin in the process. Following this method, and using educational materials developed by Strong Learning along with other high quality materials, the student is guided along the path to academic success.

Using this method successfully for over 45 years, Strong Learning tutors have helped students in all subjects and all levels, regardless of age!

Parents have told us they appreciate our ongoing communication loop keeping them apprised of their child’s progress every step of the way.
