Dlin Academy provides premier elementary, high school and university tutoring services that result in high achievement of our students in all subjects. We offer one-on-one tutoring as well as group sessions.

Individually  Tailored
Ground Up
Multi -Tiered Learning
Able to Teach Others

At Dlin Academy our goal is mastery, and so our focus is on making learning the priority. Whether it is one of our seasoned Master Tutors, or one of our carefully selected subject specialists, each tutor is gifted in their subject area(s), with training, classroom experience, and proven exceptionalism in education. Our tutors are selected and trained to tailor their approach to the specific needs of each student.


We believe in a ground-up approach to content, so that students are equipped to grow beyond what they learn. In fact, it is our greatest reward when we hear that one of our students was able to use what they learned to help others in their class. For the greatest mastery of a subject comes not just from being able to score well on tests, but from being able to teach others – and of course, at that level, the test scores follow!


In our one-on-one sessions, we focus on the individual needs of the student to ensure that they reach their maximum potential and will always use multi-tiered approaches to help. Every student has their own learning style, and our tutors are trained to understand and leverage the learning styles of each student they work with. In our group sessions, we use the dynamic of the group to leverage the strengths of each student in order to encourage and facilitate the learning for everyone. Our goal with group sessions is for each student to have the opportunity to both learn and teach.

We offer virtual as well as in-person tutoring sessions.

We always make use of the latest technology to assist in the development and strengthening of the concepts we teach. We also offer specially tailored courses that often fill the gaps that can be created in the course of normal schooling.
