Our Story

As with many great stories of humble beginnings, Learning Matters, Inc. began in 2006 as a conversation between friends. Around a kitchen table, Christie Andrews and Deb Kitchens shared coffee and dreamed of a place where kids, regardless of their parents’ income, could come and receive remediation, instruction and academic mentoring.

Our Mission

Learning Matters provides to K-12 students, regardless of socioeconomic status, a team of experienced learning specialists who assess student academic abilities and offer intensive instruction to  (1) remediate the individuals’ needs, (2) improve performance and grades in school, (3) increase students’ feelings of self-worth, and (4) enhance opportunities for success in life.

Core Principles

  1. Making student support services financially accessible.
  2. Offering a whole family approach – advocacy, affordability, support
  3. High quality academic intervention for all students with learning disabilities.
