Who says learning can't be fun?! Our goal at LOVE Learning is to keep your child moving, laughing, and engaged. We find that the building blocks of math and language arts are important no matter the age of the student. We offer an array of homeschooling and enrichment programs, designed to provide children with fun and engaging classes as well as the support they need to thrive. 


Our experienced instructors are passionate about teaching and strive to create a safe and inspiring learning environment.  We are committed to providing a quality education that is tailored to each student's needs and interests. We play games and do hands on activities that have your child start to LOVE Learning!

Meet our Teachers

Ms. Tara

Ms. Tara spent 5 years teaching in Miami before moving to St. Petersburg.  During her time as a teacher, she found a passion for helping students who struggle in math find their potential.  In St. Petersburg, Ms. Tara started tutoring one-on-one and with students who had fallen behind in their math classes.  Realizing the amount of need for after school help, she opened up the first LOVE Learning Center in January 2019.  She now works with other experienced teachers to help each child find the way they love to learn in a way that works for them!

Coach Will

As Director of Personal Development, my mission is to help improve your child's work ethic. Academic struggles don't necessarily mean lack of knowledge. Many times, it is lack of organization, interest, or commitment. Together we can find the best tools to lift your child's spirit and motivate them to

LOVE Learning.


Ms. Erica

Erica graduated from the University of Florida with a Master's degree in Special Education and Elementary Education with honors. Upon returning to her hometown in St. Petersburg, she worked as a Reading Intervention teacher with K-5 students using various reading programs at Maximo Elementary.

Her professional life has included time as an early elementary teacher, preschool science teacher and as a training coordinator, and later Director, of a private preschool. Her approach to teaching revolves around hands-on learning experiences, as she believes children best grasp ideas, big and small, through interactive and sensory activities. Through play-based learning, Ms. Amber's goal is to create a foundation that not only supports academic success but also nurtures a sense of wonder and resilience in each child.

Outside of the classroom, Ms. Amber can be found adventuring with her two boys, taking her 2 pups for a walk or tending to her ever growing plant collection and garden. She loves the outdoors and enjoying as much time as possible in the sun. In the quiet moments of her free time, Ms. Amber enjoys reading memoirs and sitting on her lanai enjoying the breeze.

Central to her methodology is active student involvement in the learning process. Ms. Kaitlyn encourages students to express their interests and preferences, fostering a collaborative and student-centered classroom environment. By incorporating student input and encouraging peer-to-peer learning, she cultivates a sense of ownership and enthusiasm for learning among students.

In managing classroom dynamics, Ms. Kaitlyn utilizes strategies such as proximity control to deter distractions and adjusts her tone and volume to maintain student focus.

Types of Homeschooling

Homeschooling models come in many shapes and sizes, as every family's needs and goals are different. Unschooling is a model where children are free to pursue their natural curiosities, while worldschooling takes learning out of the classroom and into the world. Traditional homeschooling requires more structure and planning, while still allowing for some flexibility.

With the right support and resources, each of these models can be successful. Fortunately, there are many homeschooling support networks available, both online and in-person, to help families make the best decisions for their children.

Love Learning supports schedules from all homeschooling backgrounds! Listen Ms. Tara and Coach Will as they talk about unschooling!
