What you need, when you need it.

We’re teachers at heart, and we love working face to face with our clients. That means our projects are as individualized as the people with whom we are working.

On the one hand, our work – presentations, coaching, projects – reflects the latest research, learning theory, and classroom-tested practices in the areas of instruction, classroom assessment, evaluation, and leadership. On the other hand it is completely unique because our work reflects the local policies, context and practices of each client.

Many of our clients continue to work with us long after our first collaboration. That’s because we establish relationships based on trust, familiarity with them and their unique learning context. These are the same sort of relationships our clients go on to build with their students, adult learners, schools, and systems. Relationships that encourage an open environment for analysis, feedback for learning, and ongoing improvement.
