Private Tutoring

Reawakens the joy of learning

 In compliance with the relaxation of Columbia’s stay-at-home ruling, Focus on Learning is offering students more options for tutoring.  Some tutors are ready to begin tutoring on-site right away.  Others want to wait until mid-May before beginning face-to-face sessions.  All tutors will, of course, continue to teach on  Zoom.

We expect to hold ACT prep classes for the June 13th test on-site.  We will follow the recommended rules of distancing and hygiene to make sure everyone stays safe.

Tutoring will continue to be available for ACT, SAT, math, science, and  English.

Our Services

Who we are

WE TEACH STUDENTS — NOT SUBJECTS

Focus on Learning is an education center located in Columbia, Missouri for thirty-three years. We have been dedicated to serving the needs of individual learners from kindergarten through college. We have recently changed our emphasis and are now limiting our services to 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. The 21st century will put great demands on their educational background, especially in STEM areas, than ever before. Our goal is for every student to be college-ready — to have the reading, writing, math, and science skills that will lead to success in colleges 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. We also annually give scholarships to graduating high school seniors. Focus on Learning is proud to be a part of the rich learning community in Columbia.
