What is Northshore Learning?
Hi! I am Mary Sweet and I am Northshore Learning.
Northshore Learning is going on sixteen years as a tutoring business and is located adjunct to my home in Woodinville, Washington. My goal is to offer whatever is needed to be successful academically and in life. This includes tutoring support for students from third grade through adult, education for high school credit, SAT/ACT preparation, study strategies, learning support of all kinds and enrichment.
Over the years of my business, and long before, I have helped young students read, an electrician and welder move ahead in their careers, sixth graders move ahead in math, college students learn to organize an essay, ninth graders diagnosed with ADHD figure how to cope with the bewildering array of requirements of six teachers, women in their 40's finally pass a college math class, students deal with trauma in their lives while staying afloat in school, kids realize that learning the word “banal” as a vocabulary word is neither a banal nor mundane activity, gifted children of all ages find challenges in learning, kids of all abilities discover the joy of mathematics (or at the very least get through the classes!), former non-readers find literature they couldn't put down and all types of students find the pleasure of learning for the sake of enrichment.
I truly believe that knowledge is power---even if only power over your own life, which is the greatest power of all. Learning is the greatest joy of life, but too often it has become not only drudgery but what seems like nearly an impossible goal achieved only by the few chosen who magically have found the key to school and life success. How many kids are just waiting for school to end so they can get to “real” life? Surviving “real life” requires learning all the time. I want people to have the tools to do that.
