A-Plus Learning aides everyone from kindergartners to college students in the learning process. Prior to one-on-one tutoring, pupils are given an assessment that helps determine goals. Students then work on those goals during one-hour sessions, getting help with homework and practicing writing, mathematics, and science skills with a focus on personal growth. The center's music lessons, valid only in the Stockton-area, provide hands-on experience in percussion, piano, or theory, whereas life-skills coaching targets study habits, family support, or career coaching to help participants succeed in every part of their lives. The center only hires tutors with a four-year degree, and parents are required to be present during sessions.
