Who we are

WE TEACH STUDENTS — NOT SUBJECTS

Focus on Learning offers students a nurturing educational environment for”new beginnings.” For 37 years we have worked with students to bring out their best to become confident and successful learners.

We are currently focusing instruction on high school students  Our goal is to offer these young men and women the individual subject tutoring and test prep for ACT, PSAT, SAT they need to succeed in college and in life.

At no time has education been more important.  Students will need the education to participate in a society that is. becoming increasingly technical and science-driven.  Good jobs will be available for those who are educated to fill them. 

Our goal is for every student to be college or vocationally ready — to have the reading, writing, math, and science skills that will lead to success in college and other post-secondary classes.

We are committed to working with Columbia Public Schools both as professionals and as a Partner in Education. We sponsor the MAC Scholar high school program, which works with historically under-represented students in Columbia Public Schools, offering ACT courses at no cost. Focus on Learning is proud to be a part of the rich learning community in Columbia.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”

Learning Styles Matter

Left Brain Thinkers

Left Brain learners rule the classroom. School schedules pose no problems because they are very time conscious. Assignments and test dates are remembered and even neatly entered into assignments books. Verbal and analytical, left brainers readily learn sequential skills : phonics, grammar rules, multiplication tables make total sense. Left brainers are verbal and enjoy reading and writing, building strong vocabularies in the process. Test questions make sense to them. They like to talk, debate, and argue. They follow multiple directions well and take good notes. The classroom environment is their natural home. Left brainers become our lawyers, neurologists, accountants, journalists , teachers, politicians, bookkeepers and bankers.

Right Brain Thinkers

Right Brain learners view the traditional classroom as a foreign land. Visual and spontaneous, they have little sense of time. Assignments are forgotten and test dates not remembered. Nonverbal learners, right brainers struggle mightily with routine classroom tasks: phonics and grammar make no sense, memorization of rote facts is difficult, spelling is hopeless, punctuation is ignored, and the meaning of questions remains an ongoing puzzle. Note taking is problematic. Right brainers only learn what they understand. Out-of-the box thinkers, they are not verbal but creative and intuitive, often giving the right answer without being able to explain how they got it. Right brainers are our artists, musicians, designers, architects, athletes, builders, surgeons and software designers.
