The goal of education is not just the acquisition of knowledge, but the power to use it. At CLC, we build pathways to empowerment and empathy through education. We recognize that this path will look a little different for each student, and that’s the beauty of CLC! By fostering relationships and finding creative, student-focused approaches to learning, CLC ushers students towards fulfilling lives.

Enriching students’ lives beyond just the classroom begins with teaching individuals how to learn through the styles and techniques matched to individuals. It brings me joy to elevate student awareness and restore their confidence, therefore enhancing their talents and strengthening their own foundations. Rooted in the belief that individualized learning inspires engagement and empowers students, I love working with the CLC team to nurture a supportive environment of interactive and collaborative resources that uplift students and accelerate their success into wider communities.

CLC is about so much more than strict academics. Yes, we help students learn how they learn best and improve their academic performance, but we recognize that when a student is struggling to learn, they can feel incredibly isolated. When students come to clc, they’re getting a mentor and an ally, someone who has their back and will stand beside them.
