mike and beth voetAs parents ourselves of five great kids, grade school through college, we believe in creating strong kids. The outside world is tough and seems to be getting more confusing every day, so we need to equip our children with the tools they need to succeed in whatever they are called to do.

But building strong kids is not just a matter of telling them how great we think they are; that’s important, but they need hard work and accomplishments to prove to themselves that they can do what needs doing.

That’s where Life Tools can help!

With over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience, and a bit of parenting mixed in, we have the expertise and know-how to give your student(s) the assistance they need to accomplish their goals.

Our philosophy is “Back-to-the-Basics”; we utilize learning techniques and teaching principals that have been proven over the years, and we customize those to the uniqueness of your student. Call us today for a free assessment, and let us help you make a strong kid.
