We believe that preparation is the key to academic success. We teach students and learners of all ages the appropriate skills for 21st century education and the competitive global economy.

Our Story

Started in 2012 as The Language Planet and specializing in foreign languages, TLP Education has now grown to offer tutoring and college prep packages in addition to language instruction. We offer after-school language classes, private and group tutoring sessions and international student camps to encourage and inspire confidence and learning. Our college counseling program helps parents and students prepare and plan for college. Our committed teachers, tutors and staff members are able to provide the necessary tools for academic success.
