2021 Tutoring Guide | Greater Lansing Area Moms

We all want what’s best for our children and we heard you when you asked.  Whether they want to improve their grades, are having trouble in a specific subject or difficulty preparing for a standardized test – we want to be certain our children have the support they need for academic success.

This is why Greater Lansing Area Moms has put together a Tutoring Guide for the 2021-2022 School Year!

As you scroll down you will find tutoring companies, educational consultants, programs and teachers who are available both face to face and virtually for pre-kindergarten through high school.  We are pleased to share so many options to offer extra help this academic year.

Thank you to our generous sponsoring partner Jean Jean Vintage and the Graduate East Lansing.

More information about The Well Education Center

The Well Education Center is beautifully unique. We believe that helping our youth grow and thrive is not a solo act. We need each other. The Well aims to live and operate in such a radically generous way, it inspires others to do likewise – full of faith, full of love, full of hope.

We provide ordinary people the opportunity and platform to help their community. Parents and schools who receive services through The Well are not only helping their children grow and thrive, but they are also helping youth in our community whose parents cannot afford academic supports. This is accomplished through a uniquely generous business model. Currently, we give 25% of every dollar received right back to the community, including scholarships. And we are moving towards giving even more! We partner with local organizations that serve youth in our community to offer support where there is need.

Our mission is to seek the WELL being of hearts and minds in academics for the whole community. The Well provides tutoring for all ages and in all subjects. We specialize in providing reading instruction for students with dyslexia or dyslexic tendencies. We also provide support services and opportunities for teacher development and training.
