In uncertain times, one thing is certain:

Back to Basics can help to keep your child’s education on track.

Back to Basics Learning Dynamics, Inc. is a full educational services and tutoring business that serves the tri-state area.

We worked alongside school districts to provide safe and effective educational services this spring when COVID-19 hit, and we have been operating our own school focused on personalized education for many years. We are ready to support parents as you make the choices that will keep your student on a safe and steady academic path.

We are offering several options for the 2020-2021 school year:

Virtual Education Assistance


Help your child stay focused and on-track with your school’s online education program. One of our highly skilled tutors will work with your child for an hour each day, five days a week, to help your child stay organized with current work, offer more in-depth challenges, and oversee homework and projects. 



You’ve made the choice to homeschool your child—now Back to Basics can help. Our staff can assist in selecting a curriculum or provide tutoring and skill-building supports for your homeschooled student. Delaware students can also enroll in coursework at Back to Basics for original credit.

Students of all ages know that a solid education is the first step to a life filled with success. At Back to Basics Learning Dynamics, we’ve been helping students on that journey since 1985. We may be best know for private tutoring in Delaware, but we also provide educational consulting, services for state agencies and businesses, translating and interpreting, professional development, and employee training. Our specialty is designing a custom fit for your organization’s educational programs.

Back to Basics serves all students—from those who simply need some academic support, to those who face learning disabilities, ADHD, visual or hearing impairments, or other challenges. We also provide tutoring and test prep in Delaware, Maryland, and southeast PA, and educational services through contracts with districts, schools and the state of Delaware.

If you need tutoring or educational services— at a school, at a business, or in your home— Back to Basics is the answer.
