How We Came to Be

Hello, my name is Tanisha Gingerich and I am the owner of Craniums Learning Center. In 2018 I had vision to provide our small community with quality tutoring services right in their own backyard.  Most important to me was that what we provide to students be: research based, effective, fun, and delivered by licensed educators themselves. Craniums Learning Center has become that vision come true! We hire licensed teachers to deliver quality experience and educational interventions to help your student be the best version of themself.

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where I earned my B.A. in Psychology from Case Western Reserve University.  I then received my MSSA in Children, Youth, & Family, from Case Western Reserve University, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences.  After graduation I went on to conduct research through various Universities and organizations. My greatest passion always being; community outreach, psychotherapy, and chemical dependency. As a result I have worked in the Netherlands, served as a liaison to the courts, worked for the Justice Affairs Department, held a position as a clinician at University Hospitals of Cleveland in their Emergency Psychiatric Department , and was a private practice partner at Marbury & Associates. I worked extensively with chemical dependency and HIV/AIDS outreach at the Cleveland Free Clinic and through other various non-profit organizations.  The common thread through so much of this work is that it focused on working with at-risk populations; moreover at-risk youth.  Later in my career I worked for Novo Nordisk in their diabetes and obesity sales divisions as a pharmaceutical representative.  While there I learned to advocate for medications for populations most in need and to raise awareness around the rising obesity epidemic.

I want to touch the lives of those we serve and my wish is that everyone follow the motto that, "Every child learns in a different way on a different day." No one child learns the same, comprehends the same, or sees the world the same.  Yet society has tried to streamline their learning to and their deficits to "all be the same."  At Craniums we do not see our students the same.  Our goal is to provide custom tutoring that fits the need of the whole child! We do so through individualized assessments, mindfulness training, and memory sensory learning training.  We address and customize their learning to what fits them best and we teach them in a way that the student can understand.  It is important that we address building the confidence our students never even knew they had.

We are a private family owned business and provide discounts to families of our first responders, veterans, active duty military, and teachers.  As a disabled, female veteran of the 1-44 PATRIOT Missile family, it is my profound honor to be able to give service to these men and women who give so much of themselves every day.  It is also my greatest honor and duty to serve our students who rely on us to help them find success! Please feel free to stop in just to say hello or to simply ask questions about the programs we provide.  STAY CALM, GET A TUTOR! Thank you for trusting us with your students.
