Unlike many other tutoring organizations, Peak Learning Solutions was founded by an educator and is run by educators, not business people. At Peak, students are our bottom line, not sales, marketing, and revenue. When making any decision at Peak, our motto is "Students First." Unfortunately, what's best for students is not always what's best for business. At Peak, our students always comes first, no matter what.
Peak Learning Solutions is also unique due to the wide scope of services offered, supporting students from kindergarten through college. When a family chooses Peak, they partner with a group of educators that can provide a variety of inteventions and services that ensure students experience a happy and successful academic jounney and achieve their peak potential.
In addition, Peak:
As experienced educators and former classroom teachers, we know that, despite the rhetoric we often hear when education is discussed, our schools cannot be all things to all students, nor should that be expected. Even the most dedicated and effective teachers cannot individualize and differentiate their instruction to meet the unique needs of every student in class. This is simply an unfortunate fact inherent in large group classroom instruction. Furthermore, struggles are exacerbated when students have significant needs, like those with learning differences. The fact is that there will always be some students that need more than is fair to expect schools to provide, particularly given the fact that many of our schools are underfunded and under-resourced. And there will always be support services students need that many schools simply do not, and arguably should not, provide, like test prep for major standardized tests like the SAT and ACT.
We are here because there is a need. We are a trusted additional resource that students, schools, and parents can turn to when students need additional support. Whether it’s reading and literacy support, content tutoring for classes, improving study habits and learning skills, improving confidence, preparing for and applying to college …whatever your educational needs WE CAN HELP.
Peak Learning Solutions was founded in 2007 by former classroom teacher and educational psychologist, Drew Sarmiere. Peak initially began as a tutoring business focused primarily on content instruction, but has since evolved into a full-service educational organization offering a comprehensive variety of resources for students, parents, and schools.

Learning is a skill that can be developed and improved with instruction and practice. Our primary goal is to help students develop into independent, self-regulated learners that can ultimately learn and succeed on their own in any learning environment. In addition, we aim to develop strong partnerships with schools and fellow educators in order to best meet the needs of each and every student. Furthermore, through these partnerships we strive to reach students from all walks of life, ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and otherwise.
At Peak, we understand that every student and family with whom we work is unique. Based on this understanding, our mission is to:
Peak’s learning centers offer the highest quality educational assistance available. No other organization in this industry holds itself or its staff to a higher set of standards. Our staff is populated by some of the area’s best teachers and we are able to design a specialized approach for every student. Furthermore, our focus on developing self-regulated learners is unique to Peak and results in the development of a set of skills and habits that serve our students for the rest of their lives.
