Sisters Open Tutoring Service

Sisters Open Tutoring Service

Above Grade Level of Northern Virginia recently opened its doors; a business born from two Northern Virginia sisters, Elizabeth Colon and Christa Huntley of Alexandria. Both new moms of infant daughters, they joined their passions for education and children.

Above Grade Level of Northern Virginia provides an in-home tutoring service for kindergarteners through 12th graders, including a free skills assessment. The program uses an in-home professional tutor, diagnostic evaluation and specialized teaching curriculum.

Colon and Huntley come from diverse career backgrounds. While Colon conducted employee training in the corporate world, Huntley delved into criminology and forensic research for the government. With more and more schools dealing with budgetary constraints and large student-to-teacher ratios, both saw a need for individual in-home tutoring.

Colon graduated from Penn State University with dual degrees in international politics and Spanish and resides in the Fredericksburg-area, with her husband and daughter.

Huntley received her master’s degree in forensic psychology from Marymount University and dual bachelor’s degrees in criminology and psychology from Florida State University. Huntley lives in Alexandria with her husband and infant daughter.
