Recognized as leaders in the field of intensive academic intervention, Illumina Learning Center combines research in brain science and proven methods of instruction to support student learning in core academic areas.
Our goal is to bridge the learning gap, improve school performance, and help students become confident, independent learners.
We work with the best educators in the field and offer continuous training in evidence-based practices for student success.
We target learning to the individual needs of the student
Studies show the natural pathways are stimulated when our senses are engaged — visual, kinesthetic-motor, and auditory.
The Illumina Method combines explicit, sequential, and systematic multisensory instruction as well as cognitive strategies essential for academic development. Students typically make a 1-2 year gain a our program after six to twelve months of instruction.
Proven multi-sensory approach.
The Illumina Method
Our prescriptive approach utilizes diagnostic screenings as well as checkpoint assessments to pin-point problem areas and ensure ongoing monitoring of progress. Expert tutors formulate a tailored learning plan to support areas of weakness and rebuild the foundation from the ground up.
Study skills as well as other essential tools and strategies are embedded in the program to help students become efficient learners.
A diagnostic approach to learning.
Individual. Prescriptive. Deliberate.
Michael had difficulty understanding numeration concepts and place value. He frequently missed carrying and regrouping.
After just six sessions of intensive one-one-one instruction using the multisensory place value material, Michael assimilated that the 2 in 5,284 represents 200 and therefore, the digit 2 is placed in the hundreds place.

Claudia struggled to pronounce words phonetic and high-frequency words. She developed a habit of guessing to compensate for her reading challenges.
After a diagnostic assessment, it was determined that Claudia did not have an effective phonetic foundation to decode (read) text. Claudia worked 3x per week in our Spell, Read and Write program. In less than six months, Claudia made a one year gain in reading level and was able to catch up to her classroom peers.
