Learning Services

computer-time2At Clintonville Academy, we know that there are many learning styles and preferences. All our teachers are committed to finding the best approach for each individual learner.

Our tutoring staff members are there to help both students who struggle and those who excel.

If your child has special needs, please contact our Registrar to see how Clintonville Academy’s learning services may help. Our director, teachers and tutor will meet with you and your child to assess how we may work together to create a plan for success.


Diane-Cole_DSF0834CA’s Learning Services Teacher: Mrs. Cole

My Teaching Philosophy:

I believe in asking “why” questions and looking for alternatives. I approach teaching in the same manner. I challenge students to ask “why” questions and to seek alternatives. I believe in teaching with an overall plan for the year in mind, but I am also open to changing the plan based on the interests and learning styles of my students. I work to establish clear, measurable objectives and then plan the differentiated instruction.

About Me:

I grew up in South Dakota. My husband and I moved to Columbus for better employment opportunities and the weather. So how cold does it get in South Dakota? Well, the coldest day on record in Columbus, Ohio was 26 degrees below zero. In South Dakota, that might be the high for the day. Also, I love sports. I have a pretty mean hook shot and can dribble behind my back. When I am not teaching or showing off my hook shot on the play ground, I like to visit National Parks.

“Every child can learn, but every child learns differently. So love the fact that you are unique.”
