Team Learn Strong Understands That Every Student Is Unique

That’s why our approach to tutoring, coaching and other family support is designed to leverage your student’s strengths to help them realize the power of their “yet.”

Mission & Core Values

Team Learn Strong’s mission is to inspire children to believe in their ability to work and grow in any direction in which they want to excel, and to help them learn how to advocate for themselves in the classroom and beyond.

We believe in engaging children’ heads, hearts and characters in order to foster integrity, accountability, curiosity and self-confidence.


Our services are appropriate for families with strong students who want to achieve more effectively, students struggling in a particular area, or students who need specific support as outlined in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). 

Each service involves evaluation, goal setting, active practice and progress monitoring.

Founder Ellen McCrary-Mayer

I have developed these services based on my previous career as clinical psychologist in a wide variety of settings and my ten years as a classroom teacher. I earned both a doctorate in psychology (Psy.D.) and a Master’s in Education (M.Ed.). I teach and I am a trained educator in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program.
