Denise (owner/director) and her talented staff have been such a blessing to our family. What sets Achievement Learning apart is their individualized approach to learning and the authentic, caring, and nurturing staff that works with my child. In addition to their custom learning programs and passionate and engaging educators, what really impressed my husband and I was the comprehensive knowledge and overall philosophy that Denise has in regards to learning disabilities and how to best work with students struggling with these challenges. Additionally, Denise and her staff go above and beyond expectations to incorporate a true team approach to educating my child – they work collaboratively with school educators, counselors, and our doctors to ensure my child receives the best possible educational experience. Achievement Learning Center treats each child like family and every family with dignity, respect, and compassion. Best of all, my daughter is interested in working hard at ALC because she feels comfortable and trusting of the staff, and realizes that we are all working together with her best interests in mind."

I  had both my boys attending ALC regularly throughout the school year 2014/15.
What a difference it made for both of them!!  My 6th grade son went for homework help, and help in math. 
He overcame his obstacles in both, and achieved excellent grades! Most importantly, his anxiety around doing well (or not!)  disappeared. 
The staff worked with him diligently and compassionately  to assure his success. My son says " My tutor is so instructive and nice!" 
My high school jr. went for SAT help and it made such a positive impact on his score. The great educators at ALC we able to properly prepare him and lead him towards a successful outcome.
Thank you to Denise and the staff at Achievement Learning Center!  We will be back in September!!

ALC...... Such a great place! Denise & Staff care for your child. They go beyond basic tutoring. My daughter incorporates once a week tutorials, to make sure she's on task. She has excelled by leaps and bounds. To see A's and B's on her report card through her middle school years, gives me the security that I'm making the right investment in her education future. Thank you ALC! We are grateful to have you in our life.

My  boys have had positive results with Achievements Homework Help program.    The staff has helped them with understanding, knowledge,  and  study skills as well.   They have become more independent with their homework and become more organized.      I would recommend Achievement Learning Center.

We are so thankful for ALC. The tranquil environment -- and amazing staff -- provide the perfect place for my daughters to learn on a deeper level. We are confident ALC enhances their academic abilities. Mrs. Kniffin knows how to make learning fun and my girls love to go--you can't beat that!
Lisa B. (parent of 1st and 3rd graders)


My son has been tutored at Achievement Learning for approximately four years.  He has benefited tremendously from the excellent tutors and individualized support.  He feels confident in his abilities as a student and has requested to continue to work with his tutors throughout high school.  As a parent, I have always been able to contact Denise for guidance, a quick question, or a meeting.  She is available not only for my son but for me as well.  I can't thank Achievement Learning enough for their help.  We look forward to a continued relationship.

We are so thankful for Denise and Achievement Learning Center as a partner in our son's education. Starting in middle school, ALC worked with us as an advocate with school meetings and really tailored homework help and tutoring to his learning style.
We continued to use ALC adjunctively with an online private school for a couple of reasons.  One- to take us out of the middle of the homework struggle as he learned to study and second- to give him the extra "live" help he needed to learn the math skills.  We plan to use them again prior to this next year for a skill boosting session.  We recommend them highly, as they are able to use varied approaches in student support.

I just wanted to thank you for working with my daughter on her SAT Prep. She enjoyed meeting and learning from you and I'm proud to report that her Math SAT went up 60 points! Thus, she is now being considered for a full tuition academic scholarship. I have two more daughters who I'll definitely be sending your way!
