Tami Jacky

Executive Director

Hi! My name is Tami and I absolutely love Ala Carte Learning Solutions! I assist a variety of age groups with different levels of math and reading comprehension. This program is wonderfully smart! Each platform builds on critical basic components and allows the students to fully grasp foundational concepts to assure proficiency before moving on. The improvement and growth in each student are visible and I love to see them interacting and comprehending the topics that before coming to us were so painfully hard for them. They improve so quickly and can easily achieve a 1-2 grade level advancement in no time at all. Watching them gain confidence and pride in their learning makes me love my work here! 
As a mom of a son with ADHD, I have experienced first-hand the learning deficits that other methods create and then do not address. The struggle is real and I wish I had known about this program for him. But, now I have the incredible privilege of being able to help other kiddos in their educational journey.
Best role ever!

Teaching Team

Certified Instructors

All of our Ala Carte Learning Solutions instructors are trained using our proven teaching program.  Our instructors are background checked and are carefully placed with students ensuring a good fit for successful learning.
Setting the standard in providing quality, one on one teaching, learners can expect to have the same instructor for their entire 30 lessons.  This gives our teachers time to get to know their student and learners can focus on their lessons and not worry about seeing a new instructor each time. 
We focus on building relationships with all our students, and encourage them to grow at their own pace.
