About Us

The company's original name is L.A.B. Productions, Inc. The L. A.B. represents the initials of my brother’s name, Lehman Alexander Beneby, the founder of the company. Lehman was an on- and off-Broadway theater actor and musician for many years before he wrote his own play and started producing it. When he died an untimely death in February 2000, I was devastated but found consolation when I decided to continue his company and his legacy in 2005, producing his play in different venues.

In 2011, I discovered an opportunity to become a Supplemental Education Services (SES) vendor with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) to provide academic tutoring to M-DCPS' Title 1 schools. Thankfully, M-DCPS accepted our application to tutor reading. We provided services for two years until the state of Florida pulled the funding from the Title 1 office. After the closure of the SES program, I continued with the desire to provide tutorial services to the community. So I began to tutor students on my own while still employed in full-time work in different capacities as an educator.

Now that I am retired, I am following my dream to have a tutorial company that I build from the ground up. I have progressed to where I have now employed 10 tutors to provide reading and math tutoring 2-3 hours a week to over a dozen students thus far. I am motivated to demonstrate that it is "better late than never" to follow your heart.
