Learning Associates has been providing individualized educational consulting services to our clients since 1981. My Educational Consulting biography is available at our website: Larry Blumenstyk Bio
I was a first-generation college graduate.
While at college, I waited on tables and started a painting & light contracting company.
I have hiked hundreds of miles above 6,000 feet, completed three century rides, sailed from Maryland to Block Island, and traveled on three continents.
I've run a garment factory, worked at a pharmaceutical consulting company, developed a 13-acre undeveloped site into 22 lots for residential housing, and more.
Why do I tell you this? Because at Learning Associates, educational consulting is not just another classroom. It requires meeting students where we "find" them, relying upon a variety of life experiences to establish a common ground. Young people need not conform to our preconceptions, because the task is to help them present their best selves.
