Tutoring     Ages 5 - Adults

Up & Away Learning Center offers tutoring in all subject areas, from kindergarten through adults.

My name is Susan McGraw; I own and operate the Up & Away Learning Center.  I obtained my BA in Elementary Education from Weber State;  a master's degree in Special Education from Brigham Young University.  After receiving my master's degree, I decided, that rather than stick to a narrow field of education, I would diversify. Many of my peers said this would limit my income, because putting my money into variety would not allow me to obtain a doctorate.  That is true,  but it allows me to have a better handle on more children and their needs. Therefore, while I have enough hours for a doctorate, I did not get one.  I feel the trade was worth it to me and the clients I serve. In accordance with that decision I worked on and received additional teaching certifications from programs at Utah State University.  I have also obtained training in auditory and visual processing needs from individual groups that specialize in these areas. 

    I like to feel that I teach my students how to learn, so that learning can continue  independently after they complete their time here.
