About Us

"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions."

- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Big Mind Learning builds educational skills, self-confidence, and motivation through individual one-on-one tutoring sessions and group workshops. Our programs are unique in their personal and creative approach. Our talented teachers are experts in their subject areas and are deeply committed to empowering and supporting students from kindergarten through college.

Our programs, specifically tailored to each child's needs, target a student's difficulties and work to build basic foundation skills in all academic areas (including SAT preparation). We explore strategies that build the critical thinking, reading and writing skills that are crucial to conceptual thinking in all subjects.

Along with individual tutoring, we offer group workshops that stimulate creative thinking and expression, mostly in the area of language arts. In both programs, we strongly believe that when students are respected, encouraged, and allowed to be creative, their engagement in the learning process grows. We aim to foster an innovative blend of educational achievement and personal self-esteem.

We offer tutoring in the following cities: Latham, Delmar, Saratoga Springs, Clifton Park, Troy, Albany, Loudonville, Ballston Spa, NY. Ask about our National and International tutoring options! We offer tutoring in the following subjects: Chemistry, Writing, Math, Science, Reading, English, SAT Prep, ACT Prep and College Essay Writing.

"The future is not a gift. It is an achievement."

- Robert F. Kennedy
