About Us

Our Story

Educational Edge was initially founded in 2020 as Elementary Edge as a way to help parents and students navigate the pandemic school shut downs. Using our passion for helping students achieve their academic and personal goals, we started with a small group of educators dedicated to providing personalized and effective tutoring services that focused on each student's unique needs and learning style. We began by offering our services to elementary school students in our local community, and as word spread, we quickly realized that we were able to support many more students and meet the needs of a much larger demand. Our team grew, and we expanded our services to include a wide range of subjects and grade levels.

One of the most important factors in our success has been our commitment to building strong relationships with our students and their families. We take the time to get to know each student, their strengths and challenges, and what motivates them to succeed. This personalized approach has allowed us to make a real difference in the lives of so many students over the years. If your child needs any academic support or enrichment, please contact us to learn how we can help your child excel.
