The Harp Learning Institute helps to facilitate improvements in school performance. We are located in Northern California ~ San Francisco, Lodi, and Valley Springs. We pick up where traditional "tutoring" and "tutors" leave off, since we offer a cost effective system for students K-12 struggling in school because of learning differences. We have helped thousands of students who struggled in school become confident and happy learners who are able to succeed academically.
Lisa Harp, Founder, Harp Learning Institute
Lisa Harp started the Harp Learning Institute in 2001 after almost two decades of being a credentialed teacher in California, Arizona and Colorado. She developed the techniques used in the Harp Learning Institute when her own son was met with learning differences. Being a certified teacher at the time, she was still amazingly frustrated when trying to help him. She searched for methods that would actually fix the problem. After being met with success, she started helping other children who were struggling in school, as a tutor and educational therapist. Once again she found success helping children and teens overcome learning problems.
Lisa then decided to take these techniques and share them with others so that no child will ever have to suffer in school due to a learning challenge. Lisa feels that all children can learn and succeed in both school and life.
