"During my gray space the ocean was my place of peace." - Chantel Marie
In the education field, there is a growing emphasis on student development to improve skills and increase the level of education for both young and adult students. A major key to attaining educational goals is tracking improvement. Once data is collected, it answers three questions; How the student learns, what the student learned, and what they are missing. Knowing where to start and determining an end goal is easy. The area in-between is the gray space that is the heart of our work. There are many setbacks and gaps that have increased due to the pandemic but Creating Gray Spaces will use data to close those gaps.
With more than 15 years of experience, we have perfected our services to help meet the needs of our clients, leading them to success. We offer Math and English tutoring and have extensive experience working with students who have dyslexia. We closely monitor student progress and make necessary adjustments so that each student stays on track and shows growth.
What makes us unique is that we tailor our services to meet our clients where they are as individuals. Whether you or your child attends traditional or private school, or if your child is home-schooled, we will devise a plan that works best for your lifestyle. We also offer additional lessons for those who may need ongoing help.
Creating Gray Spaces provides Educational Services for children and adults ranging from academic tutoring to career pathways.
