Our Story

Mother to Son

by Langston Huges

Well, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.
It's had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor --
But all the time
I'se been a-climbin' on,
And reachin' landin's,
And turnin' corners,
And sometimes goin' in the dark
Where there ain't been no light.
So boy, don't you turn back.
Don't you set down on the steps
'Cause you finds it's kinder hard.
Don't you fall now --
For I'se still goin', honey,
I'se still climbin',
And life for me ain't been no crystal stair.

Who We Are

The Burke Learning Center was created by Kim L. Burke as an educational tool for children and their families.  Unlike other learning centers, we offer our families’ reasonable rates and monthly payment options without financing.  We know that raising a family can be expensive, but we also understand that as parents we want the best for our children and their education.  The Burke Learning Center is owned and operated by parents who care about the success of our children and their peers. We have been through the long homework sessions when you get so frustrated when your child is not performing to the best of their ability. 



We are here to help you!  We will meet with you and your child to design a system that will work for them.  You will meet with your child’s Teacher Tutor along with a Center Director to map out a plan for your child educational journey.


What We Do

Our Teacher Tutors will partner with your child’s teacher to ensure success, establishing a Parent, Teacher and Tutor network that is there to invest in your child’s education.

We are open Monday-Thursday 3:00pm- 7:00pm as well as Saturdays 8:00am -8:00pm to provide on hour sessions of instruction as needed.
