Beverly Stewart, M.Ed., Founder and Director of Back to Basics Learning Dynamics, has been slated to speak at the 21st annual Education Industry Association (EIA) EDVentures Conference. The education conference, held in San Francisco this July, features dozens of speakers working together to create a unique culture supporting America’s private sector educators and suppliers.
Founded in 1990, EIA is the nation’s leading trade association representing rapidly growing and diverse organizations serving families, communities and schools. EIA members include private providers of education services, such as education tutoring and test preparation, alternative and special education services, drop-out prevention, charter school management, online learning, and suppliers/developers of educational content and assessment tools.
The conference presentation team, including Stewart, is comprised of nationally recognized keynote speakers, acclaimed authors, communications experts, and curriculum innovators. Stewart’s workshop “From Start-Up to Smart-Up: Taking Your Tutoring Business to the Next Level” is drawn from her own personal experiences as an educational entrepreneur.
Today, Back to Basics Learning Dynamics is a vibrant, full-service educational facility serving the diverse educational needs of over 12,500+ students. The firm’s beginnings, however, were significantly more humble. In 1985, Stewart established Back to Basics as a sole proprietor working from the kitchen table of her one-bedroom apartment. In her workshop Stewart shares the struggles and success from those early years and outlines specifics on how to enhance business operations, upgrade services, and fine-tune customer communications.
For 25 years, Back to Basics in Wilmington, Delaware has been recognized as the area’s undisputed leader in one-on-one tutoring. In addition, the firm offers a unique Delaware private school for grades K-12 and a Private Business and Trade School for adults. Back to Basics is the 2010 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
