Is your child struggling in school, and nothing seems to help?
At Learning Dynamics, LLC, we offer more than tutoring services. We get to the heart of why your child isn't learning.
We have found that many students who struggle to keep up in school have undiagnosed learning disabilities or weak cognitive skills. If this is the case for your child, developing new skills will likely be a challenge for the rest of their schooling years - even into college. That is unless you target the underlying cause.
Here's where Learning Dynamics comes in.
Through skills testing and research-based training, we help to correct the underlying issues that drive learning struggles. We tailor all of our programs to suit your child's unique needs and work one-on-one to provide the attention your child deserves. Our goal is to help every student reach their God-given potential and purpose.
Is your child struggling to keep up? Are you tired of spending thousands on tutoring when you don't see lasting results?
We’re here to help. We want to set your child apart, not only in the classroom but in all of life.
"In 3 months, my son went from not knowing any letters to being in the accelerated reading group in class. He scored highest in class in state testing and had a huge confidence boost we did not expect. School is easier for him now; he enjoys it.
We cannot wait to utilize Learning Dynamics again for all of our children. This program and the people exceed - they are truly wonderful. This is hands down the best money we have ever spent, and the outcomes continue to help our son grow. Such a blessing."
Bryan & Mallory J.
"Learning Dynamics gave my daughter a chance at a better life. After 7 months in the program, she has developed new skills that have brought her to her best potential. She has a future. She has college ahead of her.
She went from C/D’s to A/B’s. I will be forever grateful for how Margie, Karen & Anne go above and beyond for all their students."

Brain Training and tutoring are not the same thing. While traditional tutoring services focus on improving study habits and mentoring, Brain Training aims to strengthen cognitive skills.
Cognitive skills are the skills that allow our brains to think, learn, understand, remember, reason, and focus. Cognitive skills are crucial to every child's success.
If your child has weak cognitive skills, it can keep their brain from grasping or retaining new information. No matter how many times teachers, tutoring services or family members explain the information, it just doesn't stick.
Scientific studies show that 80% of learning problems are caused by cognitive weakness. Our learning center gets to the root of your child's struggles to transform their abilities.
Weak cognitive skills don't repair themselves with age. Without intentional Brain Training at a qualified learning center, your child is likely to continue struggling if they have cognitive weaknesses.
Studies show that 85% of the nation's reading problems are rooted in the way the brain is wired. Brain Training educational services help to strengthen the cognitive skills crucial to proficient reading.

1. Processing Speed: How rapidly and correctly the brain can move through written material to find what it is looking for. How quickly the brain processes information.
2. Active Working Memory: The brain’s ability to make a protein print (called an engram) and retrieve that piece of information from its memory.
3. Visual Perception/Processing Skills: The brain’s ability to handle information from pictures, drawings, and shapes.
This deals with our ability to use maps, graphs, charts, or set up word problems and can help students who struggle with math.
4. Central Auditory Processing: The brain’s ability to blend, interpret, and use the 44 sounds of the English language.
Problems in this area are one of the best indicators of Dyslexia.
Issues in this area result in difficulty concentrating, listening, reading, remembering, writing paragraphs and papers, spelling and following directions.
5. Word Attack: The brain’s ability to sound out words.
This allows you to successfully sound out and pronounce any word in the English language regardless of the length or difficulty of the word.
6. Logic and Reasoning: The brain’s ability to break down complex projects into a sequence of steps.
Students who are strong in logic and reasoning like to figure things out on their own, but if they have a short attention span, this can become very difficult and frustrating.
Logic and reasoning exercises train the brain to focus, pay attention and concentrate and can help with ADD/ADHD.
Without properly-performing cognitive skills, it's nearly impossible to learn, think, remember and pay attention, even with extensive tutoring. Using a program called PACE, which stands for Processing and Cognitive Enhancement, we find out which processing skills your child is lacking, and develop those skills using breakthrough training methods.
Utilizing a multi-sensory reading and spelling program called Master the Code (MTC), our Knoxville Learning Center helps your child develop the underlying skills that are crucial to reading and spelling. This program has helped thousands improve Attention, Memory, Processing Speed, and more.
We've developed a custom, in-house program called Number Dynamics to help students overcome difficulties with dyscalculia, a math learning disability that impairs your ability to represent and process numerical magnitudes in a typical way. An estimated 5%-7% of students in the U.S. have this math-based learning disability.
We use a 100% customizable program called Play Attention to help students improve attention skills, increase time-on-task, improve memory, and reduce behavior problems. Play Attention combines time-tested teaching methods, proven technology, and holistic care and is an excellent educational service for students with ADD and ADHD.
Our custom-designed reading program incorporates the best, research-proven methods to help your child make accelerated progress in reading. We use Systematic Simultaneous Multi-Sensory Instruction to address a wide range of spelling and reading skills. Designed for students who don't know their letters through a first-grade reading level.
When you visit Learning Dynamics,LLC for help, the first thing we do is administer a comprehensive Brain Skills Assessment at our Learning Center. The test takes about an hour and a half to complete, is reasonably priced, and shows us exactly which cognitive skills are weak and which are strong. A one-on-one consultation is included with every skills test.
Prevention can be pivotal to learning disabilities. That's why we use a program called Search and Teach to identify vulnerable children. Through this program, our educational service provides a clear profile of your child's strengths and weaknesses and a structure to guide appropriate intervention and prevent future failure.
