About Aly Young 

Aly Young, the owner of the Learning Lab, is a notorious mover-and-shaker who gets things done at The Learning Lab!

Her background in psychology and sociology led her to explore her passion for education and learning by teaching in various settings, ranging from private to public to charter schools. In every school, Aly noticed that there were always kids who struggled with the material, not because they weren’t smart or weren’t trying, but because the approach was wrong.

That firsthand experience showed Aly that learning isn’t strictly academic, it is not black and white. Learning is a complex process that involves social and emotional functioning and an understanding that every brain processes information differently. This is the realization that inspired her to work on The Learning Lab to help struggling learners find success, build confidence, and let go of frustration.
