About Certified Learning Centers

Certified Learning Centers (CLC) is the only full-service educational support agency serving the entire Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia areas. While the agency is especially attuned to the distinct needs of the underachiever, the learning disabled, and the gifted and talented, all students will find CLC a welcoming environment that fosters educational achievement.

We offer "live" (on-site) courses of our small group programs throughout the entire Metro area, and we provide both specialized One-on-One In-Home and small group programs. Government and military personnel are some of our largest customer bases.  A number of peer-reviewed studies have demonstrated the link between higher education levels, greater reading efficiency, and proficient organizational skills with higher income levels.  CLC guarantees the intensive, experienced instruction that will enable all our clients to achieve educational and /or professional excellence, no matter what their needs.

Created and Run by an Educator:

The founder and Executive Director of CLC is Patricia M. Felton, B.S., Elementary Education; M.Ed., Special Education/Learning Disabilities. She is also a Certified Educational Diagnostician and Reading Specialist at the Advanced Professional Level. Before founding CLC, Mrs. Felton taught in the public school systems in Maryland and Virginia, working both in classrooms and as a resource specialist, and she has been involved in individual instruction for more than 36 years. In addition, at CLC she has spearheaded a number of highly successful small group programs, including Speed Reading, Comprehension & Retention, Effective Writing, SAT-I Prep, and Study & Organizational Skills (both grade-level-specific and adult-level course).

CLC addresses each student's needs, and it employs approximately two hundred and fifty Maryland, Virginia, and DC certified teachers, tutors, Board Certified Educational Psychologists, and Certified Educational Diagnosticians to help provide support for students at all grade levels, as well as adults. CLC is especially attuned toward the distinct needs of the learning disabled, special education, and gifted and talented students, but we believe that all students will find CLC a welcoming environment that fosters and will help them achieve their educational and training needs.
