Heads Up Learning

School support and extra enrichment

for English and French learners.

Heads Up Learning offers academic help for students in grades 1-9.

Students learn best when given the opportunity to make discoveries, find patterns, and think critically about new ideas; curriculum is built on themes of citizenship, activism, environmentalism, and human-tech relationships.

Heads Up Learning is a one-woman operation, and that’s why parents like it. One-to-one rapport is at the heart of all learning, and classes are written and tailored for your learner with a streamlined vision.

From A Heads Up Parent

“That Laura turns the subject into something engaging and fun speaks to her commitment in working with how our son learns. It’s been a massive relief to have Laura working with him during this unconventional learning period. She’s really been able to get him to believe in his abilities.”

-Abby, Hudson Valley, NY

From A Heads Up Parent

“Zoom schooling during the pandemic has been extremely challenging for our 2nd grader. Laura has been a godsend. Our child is eager to log in to learn with Laura and comments that time flies when she is learning with Laura. We have been working with Laura for the past two months, and our child went from knowing zero French to conjugating verbs and singing songs in French. Laura is patient, warm, and kind and challenges our child’s natural curiosity. Our child says she’d like to continue learning with Laura even after her school reopens.”

-Suhi, Oakland, CA
