M.A.P.L.E. Tutoring’s staff wants to be part of your child’s team through ongoing communication with you, teachers, and other service providers.  Homework issues can impact grades, skill development, self-esteem, and relationships with parents/guardians. M.A.P.L.E Tutoring gives you the opportunity to focus on your relationship with your child rather than feeling like a homework taskmaster and your child a frustrated student.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our staff. Thank you again for considering Samara Learning Center to meet your child's academic, social, and behavioral needs and executive functioning skills.


While schools are shutdown because of the Coronavirus pandemic, Samara is offering small group and one-to-one tutoring online. We want to help your kids keep up their skills and provide some structure for them, while letting you go back to concentrating on the special relationship of being parents/guardians. We are working on setting up a schedule and signups accessible by our website, but for right now, if you are interested, please contact us by email or phone.
