Learning Tank’s Mission and Philosophy


  •                     Learning Tank is a Christian based tutoring service dedicated to helping students realize their God-given potential academically or otherwise. 

  •                     It is our belief that children are gifts from God (Psalm 127:3) and it is all of our responsibilities to help prepare them so that they may discover 

  •                     and be ready to walk in their God-given purpose. This belief has influenced our mission for Learning Tank greatly.

  •                    Our mission is to equip children with the skills necessary to ensure that they attain their God-given potential and to develop a proper personal 

  •                    understanding of themselves as a unique individual created in the image of God.


  •                    Our services are therefore designed with our mission in mind. We strive to teach students the love for learning and develop within them the benefits 

  •                    of achieving excellence through learning. We also provide our students with the skills they need to ensure their ability to reason and make logical, 

  •                    intelligent decisions now and in the future.





  •                 Develop a deep understanding of mathematical skills and as a result, they will perform well in school and on standardized tests because their 

  •                  understanding is at a deeper  level.

  •                  Show students several ways to approach and solve problems and emphasize the process rather than the solution.

  •                  Build a solid foundation in math for students and promotes critical thinking, a skill that is useful beyond the classroom.
