Our Story

Dr. Joan Ickes and Dr. Lillian McEnery
founded Dynamic Learners, Inc.











As a parent, what can be more important than a child’s education? Tony’s dad, Steve, was concerned because Tony was struggling in his middle school classes. Like any good Dad, Steve wanted to help.  He had a private learning agency administer assessments, even though it was expensive. However, Steve questioned the private company’s assessment results and learning support. That is when he called his friend Joan.

We did an evaluation of the assessment and were alarmed that some of the tools---and therefore the results---were questionable. When Steve learned this, he asked Joan to assess Tony’s learning and provide a personalized intervention plan and Dynamic Learners had its first client.  Happily, Tony was also our first success story. 

We conducted more research and found that while the quality of these private programs varied, they were not affordable for the majority of Houston metro-area families.  As educators, we passionately believe that all children and adults deserve the help they need to become literate in both reading and math. Adult literacy is important both as a model to a child and the adult’s self-esteem and confidence.

That is Dynamic Learners’ mission: provide high-quality personalized learning programs for all learners. Plus, provide need-based scholarships to remove any financial barriers. Our program focuses on diagnosing learning needs and tailoring proven solutions to empower learners for success in school and life.

Lydia was a bright, curious, and funny 4th grader.  She excelled in math, but struggled in reading, writing, and spelling.  Our in-depth diagnostic assessment and analysis of Lydia’s results indicated: phonological dyslexia.  Within a few months, Lydia’s spelling and reading scores improved significantly.  Her writing is more successful.  At school, Lydia is now a member of the academic and leadership club.  Lydia invites her learning specialist to attend her school activities.



Pedro was a quiet, hard-working 1st grader in a bilingual program.  He was below grade level in all subjects; however,  math was his best subject.  Our in-depth diagnostic assessment and analysis of Pedro’s results indicated challenges in word attack and comprehension in English and Spanish.  Within months, Pedro was reading on grade level in both languages.  He developed a strong rapport with his bilingual learning specialist.



Kay was a high school student struggling in algebra.  Our in-depth assessment and analysis of Kay’s results indicated challenges in fundamental mathematical concepts and equation solving strategies.  Kay enjoyed working with her learning specialist and she grew in confidence as her scores in algebra improved.  Improving in math meant Kay would achieve her career goal of working in the medical field.
