About Us

The Learning Center was started in 2008.  Dr. Lynne Gregorio, a former college mathematics and statistics professor, decided she wanted to help students of all ages with learning.  Dr. Gregorio is passionate about developing curricula that makes learning easy and wanted to be able work with students one on one to help students realize that if material is taught in an easy to understand way, learning can be quick, fun, and rewarding.

Once she started working with students, she found herself constantly creating organized summary pages to help students learn and study from.  She soon realized that if she took her ideas and put them down on paper, she could in a sense “tutor” all over the nation by providing her curriculum for purchase online.  Her first project was an Algebra curriculum.  She created a on-line e-course that teaches an advanced level of Pre-Algebra but could also be used as a review course of basic concepts for Algebra 1 or a lighter version of Algebra 1 for students with learning disabilities that  would qstruggle with a full version of Algebra.

Her second project was dedicated to helping younger students.  She wanted to create a full curriculum that took advantage of linking concepts a student already knows to concepts that they are learning in the curriculum.  Hence, Progressive Math was created.   She regularly writes articles for students and parents to use.  More information about Dr. Gregorio’s curriculum projects and her articles can be found at Apex-Math.
