We mean that ALL of our educators are experienced classroom teachers who are considered masters of their subject matter and have a record of proven success!

Embrace is dedicated to screening, recruiting, and selecting only highly qualified and proven teachers to meet our students’ academic and personal needs.

Do you offer make up sessions? What happens if I have a schedule conflict with the class calendar?
