What We Do

Partners in Learning, LLC was founded in 2013 by co-directors Danielle Foster, M.S. Ed. and Ashley Pizzo, M.A. Ed. in an effort to provide excellent individualized support for all learners.   

Partners in Learning provides educational support to families and independent schools in the D.C. metro area. We offer one-on-one tutoring, academic evaluations, and consultation for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Partners in Learning specializes in supporting students with specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, executive function disorder, attention deficit disorder, and/or who need to review fundamental academic concepts.

We create customized learning plans for students based off data gleaned through academic assessments, documentation review, and consult with families and teachers. Utilizing scientifically-based, research-proven programs and methodologies, goals are created and monitored to ensure success. Programs are available to support students with reading, math, spelling, writing, study skills, critical thinking and more. Additionally, ISEE and SSAT test prep is available for students applying to independent elementary and middle schools.
