OFL was established in 1999 by a family dedicated to improving the well-being of California’s young people.
What need does your business meet for residents of Long Beach?
At OFL, inspiring students inspires us. We believe that student-teacher relationships are critical to a young person’s social, emotional, and academic success. When you visit our locations, you’ll find students working one-on-one with highly qualified, passionate educators. We take pride in the deep connection that each staff member shares with his/her students.
Why do your clients/customers select you over your competitors?
Today, OFL offers different methods of instruction that create what we call a ‘blended’ learning model. This innovative approach to education allows students to learn with great flexibility through:
Small group(SGI) classes
One-on-one, single-subject tutoring
Hands-on, experimental activities such as trips and cultural excursions
What is your background and how did you get started with your business?
As passionate educators themselves, the founders of OFL identified a need for an alternative educational setting. For over the past 20 years OFL has provided free education for all students. OFL believes in helping students reach their goals and make their dreams of graduation a reality.
