As you may have already sensed, TPL is far from a corporate pressure-cooker. We’re not looking to create a database of thousands of educators, we want to get to know you and make best-fit matches — personality, expertise, and passion.  We don’t insist on a one-approach-tries-to-fit-all-but-doesn’t-really or force our curriculum as the best solution, there’s a lot of excellence out there to blend, so while you’ll always have support behind the scenes we empower our team with the creative freedom to truly make services customized.

Generally you’ll find our educational philosophy is a balance of both traditional and progressive best practices as we respect the brilliance in both camps and try to incorporate both appropriately. Our multi-passionate tutors and consultants are not only exceptional teachers they are dedicated mentors. We believe an educator mentor takes a holistic approach to teaching + learning by focusing on the whole individual, their interests, strengths, areas of improvement, their social emotional development and so on. Then through this they deliver content in a personally meaningful way.

Additionally, speaking of engagement, no matter the age we see play as the essential connector between teaching and learning. Whether through discovery, creative delivery of instruction, or more literally an interactive activity, we do our best to infuse sessions with a professionally playful spirit. So throw out the stuffy and get ready to harness that inner child-like wonder and enthusiasm.
