All of our instructors undergo a comprehensive training program. The quality of education is only as strong as the commitment of our students to learning and come to our center with passion, devotion, enthusiasm, and energy. We are dedicated to helping improve the quality of education for our students.

Our Approach is Simple!

Our instructors teach in a way that is caring and fun. We apply an approach that is dynamic and tailor the learning based on the child’s needs. Once we meet and assess those needs, we develop a plan for success. We take the approach of clearly communicating between the student, parents, and instructor. This allows the student to take hold of their own learning process. We carefully select our instructors and credentialed teachers who work with your child one-on-one or in small groups to better understand and apply what they are learning in the classroom.

BLC’s mission is to improve a child’s overall school performance while understanding the fundamental concepts in math, reading, and writing. We want students to build self-esteem, excitement, and a passion for learning that will unlock the key to their success. We create a tailored program to meet your child’s needs that will help close gaps in their learning. We put your child in mind first.
