The smart choice for 1-on-1 tutoring, contracted educational services and Delaware’s only 1-on-1 Private School since 1985!

  • Students at Back to Basics Learning

An investment in education is an investment in the future.

As the area’s premier provider of educational services since 1985, our unique method of instruction has helped students ages 3 to 103 succeed. And, it can help your student, too.

Our commitment to a 1-on-1 teaching method has always differentiated Back to Basics from other education options. At Back to Basics, we pair one tutor and one student, with a careful matching of both teaching and learning styles. This method has proven again and again to increase confidence, boost self-esteem, improve academic success markedly and encourage a real love of learning.

And, although we are an educational service provider, we are really in the business of changing lives… 16,500 of them since 1985.
