About Us

Nancy Berger, Ed.M., M.S.

WE ARE A WOMAN OWNED AGENCY,

ORIGINALLY FOUNDED AS "THE HOMEWORK CLUB" IN 2003 BY NANCY BERGER - A THEN FRUSTRATED EDUCATOR AND MOTHER WHO WAS OVERWHELMED BY HER CHILDREN'S HEAVY HOMEWORK LOAD.


IF THE PICTURE BELOW LOOKS FAMILIAR, 

WE CAN HELP.

Nancy Lenard Berger, Ed.M., M.S.

SINCE WE WERE FOUNDED, THE HOMEWORK CLUB 

MORPHED INTO 

"UPGRADE ACADEMICS," AN AGENCY THAT PROVIDED FREE AFTER SCHOOL TUTORING TO 2,600 BUFFALO STUDENTS AND EMPLOYED 450 OF BUFALO'S TEACHERS IN OUR PART TIME AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM. 

THIS PROGRAM ENDED WHEN THE NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND PROGRAM WAS TERMINATED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. 


NONETHELESS, A PORTION OF OUR INCOME IS DONATED TO EDUCATIONAL INTERESTS.


WE ARE OFTEN ASKED HOW WE SELECT OUR TUTORS. 

WE LOOK FOR THREE MAIN TRAITS:

  1. CONTENT KNOWLEDGE
  2. THE ABILITY TO CONVEY THAT KNOWLEDGE
  3. TUTORS WHO RELATE WELL TO STUDENTS
