Learning Specialist office

Learning Resource Center, Inc.

Established in 2008 and located in convenient Mt. Kisco, NY, we understand that everyone learns differently. A strategy that works for one student may not be the most efficient method for another. Our learning specialists provide consultations and academic support to address the needs of all learners. We also offer parent seminars on current educational topics.
