We believe that every child is different in his or her own unique learning style. In school, where the model tends to be “one size fits all”, their incredible potential can often be overlooked. At Learning Efficiency, through our customized programs, we take the necessary steps to ensure that your child’s individual learning needs are addressed. These programs can certainly make a tremendous difference in a child’s self-esteem and academic achievement. We support students with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety disorder, executive function deficits, and nonverbal developmental delays, unlocking the true potential of every child. Ask us about our customized programs designed to help enhance your child’s true abilities.

Call us today to schedule your FREE diagnostic assessment! Our highly qualified instructors will use this data to create a unique plan that will help your son or daughter achieve their intended score.
Our educational team here in Newton is comprised of elite faculty who will create a comprehensive support network for each student. These dedicated instructors, passionate about your child’s education, have spent countless hours compiling resources to create purposeful, effective lesson plans for test prep. To maximize your child’s scoring potential on the test, we start by targeting your child’s areas of development through the use of a highly, effective diagnostic tool. At the same time, we also strive to enhance his or her areas of strength and test prep goals within the necessary timeframe.
Our customized assessments assess where each student is RIGHT NOW across a wide range of sub-topics. Whether you are getting ready to take the SAT, need targeted support in academic subjects like Math, Science and English or need to understand how your Special Learner can best be supported, our diagnostics point you in the right direction to design the most effective learning plans for your child.
Our diagnostic tools provide our faculty and education team the data we need to design customized learning plans which efficiently address your child's specific deficits, challenge and extend their strengths and focus on the topics and areas they would most benefit from by not wasting valuable time on areas which won't help your child. We revisit these plans a MINIMUM of every 8 weeks to make sure your child's support is always targeting their specific needs in real time.
Supported by our education team, our dedicated faculty members will work with your child to develop the processes and frameworks needed to achieve their objectives. Your faculty members are never alone in helping your child succeed - all of our faculty members meet on a weekly basis to discuss EVERY student’s learning plan and check in with our global education support team at least twice every month to ensure they are using the most effective tools we have available.
You should always know WHAT we are doing with your child and WHY we are doing it. We have the most robust reporting processes in the industry to ensure you are properly informed. We regularly call all of our parents and provide extensive progress reports every semester which provide a great deal of detail and recommendations for each of our students. We are also always happy to meet with you to explain the progress we are seeing and areas of continued focus moving forward.
Hello! My name is Dan Cahill and I am excited to begin working with your family! As a child, I grew up in the town of Manlius, which is in the Finger Lakes region of New York. I graduated from Hamilton College with a B.A in Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics. During my time there, I was a student athlete, pursuing my passion for STEM while also being a member of the Men’s Varsity lacrosse team. Outside of this, I volunteered at the Utica Underground Café, an afterschool program and teen center for local youth. That experience allowed me to realize my desire to work with kids of all ages in highly interactive educational settings. As such, I also spent a lot of time coaching lacrosse and being a mentor to young people. When not at Learning Efficiency, I enjoy golfing, spending time outdoors, and trying new restaurants. I am excited to help your child accumulate the skills and confidence they need to be successful both inside and outside of the classroom. I look forward to meeting your child!
Hi! My name is Pim Senanarong and I am originally from Bangkok, Thailand, where I tutored middle and high school students in essay writing and test prep. Growing up in a country where English and writing did not receive a major educational focus, I decided to come to boarding school in the States so I could pursue my passion for writing fiction and nonfiction. I received my Bachelor’s from Boston College, where I majored in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. I’ve been fortunate to have the close mentorship of boarding school teachers and college professors who pushed me to stay true to my voice and craft. With their support, I received the Dever Fellowship, a grant given to an undergraduate who shows promise in a career in writing. From my exposure to different education systems, I learned the importance of an environment that values individual talents, encourages discussion and participation, and builds confidence and trust. Each student is unique and full of untold stories and potential for success. I look forward to working with you and your child at Learning Efficiency!
Hello! My name is Sam Birmingham, and I am excited to work with you and your family at Learning Efficiency. I grew up in Stowe, Vermont before attending Colgate University, where I studied English Literature and Education. While studying at Colgate, I became interested in the facets of special education and social justice in education. In college, I spent every summer working with children of all ages: either in my hometown as a tennis coach or in Boston teaching math. For me, choosing to become involved in education was a no-brainer; I was met with another easy decision upon discovering Learning Efficiency during my senior year. Learning Efficiency’s emphasis on building strong one-on-one relationships with students is something upon which I base my own educational philosophy. When I am not working at Learning Efficiency, I am probably reading, cooking, or spending time outdoors. I hope to work with your student soon!
Hello! My name is Megan Collins and I grew up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where I fell in love with theatre and thrived academically. Like many students here at Learning Efficiency, I sought to reach my full potential and put my heart into my studies, especially writing and chemistry. I combined these interests into a Bachelor of Science in Behavior and Health at Boston University. Throughout the past few years, I have taught drama and art for Pennsylvania Youth Theatre, directed religious education at Camp Bernadette, and led behavioral development groups at Youth Villages! When working with my students, I aim to highlight the true greatness in each child by using his or her unique experiences and learning styles to help that child discover the path to his or her goals. Forming relationships that lead to growth is my favorite activity on a list that also includes singing and playing guitar in my band, creative writing, reading fantasy novels, obsessing over Survivor, hiking, and contemplating large bodies of water. I cannot wait to get to know your child!
