My ninth grader worked with a Biology instructor (Carly) via zoom. Initially I was hoping for “in-person” tutoring and hesitant to agree to online sessions as he definitely had “zoom fatigue”. After... learning about my child, the tutor that Megan suggested would be a good match was several states away so if we were to work with her, there was no option besides remote learning. I felt an immediate trust in Megan’s expertise, as she patiently listened to me about my child’s needs and learning style, so we gave it a try. I am so glad we did!My child is not always an enthusiastic learner, but he never complained that it was a tutoring day. He said that the sessions were very helpful in clearing up any confusion or questions he might have as well as helping him to prepare for his end of year standardized test. His tutor, Carly, was engaging, patient and very knowledgeable in her content area. The most exciting change we noticed in our child was the obvious increase in confidence about his Biology class and the subject matter. We cannot put a price tag on that!We are very happy that we discovered the Community Classroom and will most certainly utilize these services again in the future. We cannot recommend them highly enough and think that the entire process well-organized and student-centered.read more

My daughter struggled academically during the Pandemic as I know so many students did. Her grades were not reflective of what she was capable of and her self confidence was at an all time low. I... immediately felt we contacted the right place when Megan truly listened to all of my daughter’s needs and conveyed genuine concern for her overall well-being. She understood that remote tutoring would not be effective for my daughter and that it would be best in-person. She thought it may take a few weeks to match her to a teacher who was willing to meet in person. It ended up only being a few days before she contacted us with the name and background of a tutor she felt would be a great fit. My daughter met with Tricia and they immediately made a great connection. They worked together to come up with a plan to catch up on her assignments in her classes and to work on improving her organizational and prioritizing skills.My daughter was in danger of failing several classes when we started at The Community Classroom. She ended up earning all A’s and B’s during her last quarter and she was no longer worried about having to participate in credit recovery over the summer. This allowed her to get her first summer job and her self-confidence has improved so much! I can’t thank Megan and Tricia enough for all they have done to help my daughter end her school year on such a positive note. I highly recommend The Community Classroom!read more

The Community Classroom is a gem in our community. My first-grade son needed a reading tutor, so I reached out to the CC and Megan was super responsive, professional, helpful, and clear in her... communications. She quickly connected us with a wonderful tutor and my son is swiftly catching up to grade level—and he adores her. Wins all around. Very grateful this resource exists!read more

The Community Classroom has provided an education lifeline after months of learning at home due to Covid-19 remote school schedules. I wish I'd found Megan's web site sooner! I was impressed by... the amount of information on the web site and the level of immediate guidance provided once I completed the online form. Megan met with us to understand my son's needs and offered immediate results finding a tutor for us. We found the perfect match for my son - who now loves writing thanks to Megan and our tutor, Ann. I highly recommend The Community Classroom.read more

Megan and the Community Classroom have come to our rescue multiple times during the pandemic providing excellent teachers and tutors for our 6 year old and her peers. She helped us secure a short... term teacher for a summer learning pod, a temporary one-on-one tutor for an extended school closure and more recently helped us secure a fantastic ongoing kindergarten tutor for our daughter, to provide enrichment above and beyond what she is currently getting from school. Every teacher has been an instant fit. Our daughter looks forward to every session. She speaks up, challenges herself and laughs a lot. Throughout, Megan has been behind the scenes coordinating curriculum and logistics. It’s hard to imagine what we would have done without Megan and the Community Classroom during this challenging time! We anticipate working with her for many years to come and would recommend the Community Classroom to all families (and kids!)!read more

The Community Classroom paired my elementary-aged kiddo with an incredible educator. In the months they've worked together, these sessions have become a highlight of the week: "I can't wait to see... Mary!" Just as importantly, this excellent educator started with a math-hater and now math is the kid's favorite subject. It sounds like magic + fairy dust, but the communication is so clear that I get to see her progress *and* Mary gives us fun learning activities to do together as a family.I cannot say enough about how genuinely committed these people are to my kid's joyful love of learning. In this time of remote learning when school can feel really hard, having this meaningful academic relationship has been an absolute gift.read more

We have had the most amazing experience here; especially during virtual learning! My 1st grader has so much more confidence while reading, and jumps up for her time with “Miss Mary”. Communication... has been so amazing, consistent, and thorough; both from our tutor Mary Phillips and Dr. Megan Allen. We have also enjoyed so many additional webinars, fun classes, and even live book readings with authors. Truly a caring and passionate team of educators!read more

When schooling went virtual this past year, I was at a loss of what to do to supplement my daughter's 1st grade education. Fortunately for us, Tailored Learning Supports For Families matched my... daughter with math and language arts tutors. On the days she has her sessions with them, my daughter wakes up with a smile on her face, already looking forward to the enriching and engaging learning opportunities. We do not know what we would do without this business and its unique ability to pair curated learning sessions and tutors with children. A must in this day and age!read more

Our second grader has been home doing E-learning for almost a full year now. Though this has been difficult in some ways, it has also given us the opportunity to see how he learns best and where we... can support him more. We have so much time to be together unlike normal years that are filled with sports and school and work activities. The issue is, we are not teachers. We are parents that want to help and don’t really know what to do to fill in the gaps and support him best. I reached out to Megan to see what my options were and was met with everything we were looking for and more. She interviewed me and then had a zoom meeting with my son to find out more about him and his interests. By knowing what questions to ask and how to get him to open up about his learning she was able to put together a custom plan just for our family. It is filled with games, books and activities perfect for him. There are options to increase the support through tutors or small groups. He is excited for the new things we are learning and my husband and I feel like we have the tools to help him.read more

My 10 year old, on the younger side in 5th grade, had always felt a bit behind in school, though she got good grades. Spring remote learning due to covid was an absolute disaster, with tears from her... and me on a daily basis. I knew she needed someone to help her with school and gain some self confidence regarding academics--so important for a girl her age. Megan at Tailored Learning Supports really listened and took the time to identify the right tutor. My daughter instantly bonded with her tutor, Tricia, and her expertise has helped identify gaps in understanding mathematical concepts I didn't even know were there. I am relieved and beyond grateful!read more

Megan Allen and Tailored Learning Supports for Families is helping parents (and kids!) when we need it the most. I contacted Megan distressed about how to help my daughter learn from home. She... offered reassurance and knowledgeable guidance. Through her work at Mount Holyoke and as Teacher of the Year, Megan is part of a network of teachers/education leaders nationwide who offer educational support to parents and children. I have appreciated the top-notch education guidance I have received from the teachers in every webinar so far!!!!read more

Connecting with Tailored Learning Supports salvaged a rocky end to my 10 yr old's school year and saved our summer! During our covid-remote learning, I noticed some gaps in understanding that I was... concerned would hinder learning going forward. My 4th grader's sessions with Jay have sent her confidence and enjoyment of math topics soaring. She looks forward to their work together, and is finally grasping concepts, sometimes without even realizing it! We also did a summer camp in a box since our summer plans were pretty much decimated by COVID, and it was fun, educational, and a real mood booster for my 10 and 13 yr olds, and even occasionally, my 15 year old. I highly recommend getting in touch with Megan and seeing what a truly tailored plan can do for your kids.read more

We were at a loss this summer on how to keep learning a priority at home for our six year-old while my spouse and I were both trying to work remotely. We ordered the curiosity crate and virtual... enrichment one-on-one tutoring. What a saving grace! The curiosity crate was tailored to our daughter's interests and curiosities, and it even came with a list of additional activities, books, and learning fun that has kept her busy all summer. And the enrichment tutoring...Wow! Our daughter, who consistently complains about anything math-related, has thrived with her play-based math tutor. She is having so much fun, she doesn't even realize she's learning! Tailored Learning Supports helped us get through a difficult transition-to-home learning style, and it aided our daughter to rediscover how fun and exciting curiosity-based learning is. We would highly recommend this company, its products, and its services!read more
