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 test prep in Delaware, Maryland, and southeast PA, and educational services through contracts with districts, schools and the state of Delaware.

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