The Brandywine Learning Center’s mission to inspire learners was founded in March 2003 by educator and owner, Gina DiGiacomo.
Our philosophy is that each child should be approached as an individual with a unique set of learning strengths and needs, an innate learning style, and particular interests. Committed educational mentors, who are dedicated to assisting each child to achieve their goals, staff BLC. Julie Spak, a member of our amazing staff, writes in her mission statement, “Our students discover how they learn best, develop strategies to address their learning challenges and enjoy the feeling of academic and personal success.”
We are much more than a tutoring company. We go far beyond teaching math, reading, writing, and other subjects. We teach life skills. We teach success. For every hour we spend tutoring we spend multiple hours preparing, talking to each child’s teachers and parents, working with guidance counselors, creating materials, collecting books from the library that we feel will captivate our students, studying IEP’s, report cards, and SAT results.
Our philosophy is heartfelt–to inspire a passion for learning. We work holistically by creating a triangle of success among students, their classroom teachers and parents.
