Our Philosophy

While other tutoring companies try to fit your child into a generic student model, at Meyers Learning Center, your child is the model. Our customized approach leverages student strengths while targeting identified weaknesses in the creation of customized educational support. MLC tutors use a strengths-based approach, focusing on building motivation, confidence, and self-efficacy with every session. In addition, we take time to understand and address students' obstacles to achievement, then build individualized strategies for overcoming challenges. Through this interactive process, students create and expand their success.  MLC tutors engage students in a dynamic learning partnership to help them achieve their goals.

Our History

Meyers Learning Center began with a passion for education and empowering students.  Ali Zidel Meyers, MSW, taught and tutored in a range of educational settings for years. She was fortunate to study under master educator Diane Spicer, MA, an outstanding teacher of Executive Functioning (EF) skills who was a fixture of the Bay Area for over 30 years. Ali trained with Diane in her revolutionary curriculum on Time Management, Organization, and Study Skills, and with Diane’s blessing, Ali began her own tutoring company in 2001.  Building on her training in social work and education, she expanded the EF curriculum to increase its accessibility and applicability to multiple grade levels. Ali found immediate success with a diversity of students. Families referred families, and the demand for Ali’s specialized coaching and tutoring continued to grow. In 2005, Adam Meyers, MBA, MIM, joined Ali to create what would become Meyers Learning Center, Inc. (MLC).  The couple developed a training program and ventured to recruit the best teachers in Silicon Valley, setting the highest standards in their quest to empower students with life skills beyond traditional subject-based tutoring.  MLC’s program has been taught in local schools, disseminated through parent outreach presentations and workshops, and shared with educational professionals on a national scale.  MLC continues to provide the highest quality services possible to a growing network of families, schools, and youth service professionals in the Silicon Valley region.
