About Us

Passion for education and serving others led Glenn Clayton to launch Appleton Learning in 2004. Clayton began his college career on full academic scholarship and since a full class load prevented him from pursuing a conventional job, he began tutoring to supplement his income. Through his experience, Clayton identified a void in the way traditional tutoring programs served students; they delivered rigid programs with fixed schedules and predetermined curricula. Instinct told him there was a better way.

At its official launch, Appleton set out to change the tutoring industry by delivering services specifically tailored to each student's unique needs. Today, Appleton is changing the way the world learns with its innovative and forward-thinking philosophy and methodologies related to individualized learning and meeting the needs of 21st century students (and their parents). Appleton serves individual students through academic membership, coaching and test preparation providing a proactive, opportunity based approach to learning that is more focused on long-term success and turning average students in to extraordinary students.
