As classroom teachers, Helaina Altabef and Sarah Marmor noticed something curious: some students struggled to realize their academic potential, despite the fact that they were clearly bright and driven. After analyzing the problem, the instructors devised a solution. Instead of focusing on a specific subject, such as how to fit a history textbook into one's brain via the ear, they realized that some pupils benefit from a broader focus on critical thinking. This led to the creation of Pique Learning, a tutoring program that bolsters reading, independent thinking, problem-solving, and organizational skills. Over the course of a 20-week program, tutors help students ranging from late-elementary-school to early-high-school age during in-home, one-on-one sessions.

Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.
