Emotional Intelligence

“Whenever you have learning, emotions are involved.” – Mary Printz

At APA, we’ve integrated research-based techniques into our tutoring so children grow in IQ and overcome learning blocks with EQ at the same time.  


Most parents are starting to learn that emotional intelligence is just as important for success and academic potential as IQ, but don’t know how or where to start. We often hear the question, "How does emotional intelligence affect learning?"


As certified Emotional Intelligence trainers, Miss Mary and Mr. Jeff help parents and families to understand how to bring about increased self awareness, self regulation, empathy, social confidence, resilience and joy to their child’s life for the purpose of strengthening and positioning them to improve mentally, socially, academically, and emotionally.

Understanding Emotional Intelligence as a Parent
