WHAT'S THE MAIN IDEA?
The main idea is simple, we understand children and how children learn. We use that understanding to devise customized and individualized programs
for each one of our kids by mixing the psychology of how children and people learn with the art that is teaching.
Your tutor will be trained in these psychological methodologies and put them to work with our unique and fun approaches.
What we do may seem simple at first, but seeing progress and results within weeks of starting, will bring the unspeakable joy that we are all too familiar with - the joy of seeing your child succeed and more importantly, seeing them enjoy and take pride in doing it.
The creators and the tutors have a genuine commitment to our clients and our community, and to help each and every student further themselves academically. Our methods are based on integrating academia, psychology, and good old-fashioned fun!
While we understand that with all the businesses out there, it is easy to be skeptical of sincerity, we would like to assure you, with as much power as is vested in our written communication, that we indeed hold the success of our kids on the highest pedestal.
And while, yes, we are a business, we want you to know that our main concern always has, is now, and will forever remain that twinkle in your child's eye as they present you with their successful report cards and beam about their achievements with pride.
Cliches become cliches for a reason, and we stick by this one whole-heartedly
- Children are our future, and we should invest whatever is available into helping them achieve success in the long run.
That is our promise, and that is our commitment.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Shira Shvartsman comes from a background in linguistics, focusing on areas of language acquisition, phonetics, and child development of language skills. In 2016, while working on her graduate degree at Hofstra University, THINK&Co. Advanced Learning was born, and a love for education quickly began. Over the years, the knowledge of linguistics helped create the THINK&Co. literacy approach that has helped hundreds of young learners.
This new passion for education led Shira to pursue her doctoral coursework in education, where she studied at Columbia University's Teachers College in linguistics, anthropology of education, and education policy.
THINK&Co. Advanced Learning has been a prominent part of the Brooklyn community for the past seven years, serving students and learners of all ages as a tutoring and learning center and a summer camp! As the Covid-19 Pandemic raged on, Shira took her knowledge and experience to open a private elementary school, THINKschool.
