We consult with parents, teachers, students, and other professionals to develop an individual learning plan that targets the student’s particular areas of academic need. We believe in meeting our students where they are, and we support the curriculum that they are seeing in the classroom. Our personal approach helps to increase subject understanding and retention which improves performance and develops skills for long-term academic success. We tutor students in grades Pre-K through 12 in all academic subjects.
A customized reading plan is developed for each student by our reading tutors. We assess phonemic awareness, fluency, and comprehension, and we teach reading strategies based on our students’ unique needs. It is essential to understand how a child learns to read in order to teach a struggling reader, and our reading tutors are trained and experienced in various teaching methods.
Depending on the level of writer, we teach writing skills that include basic writing mechanics and grammar, brainstorming and planning, organization of ideas and concepts, and editing. Showing student that producing quality writing involves a step-by-step process is imperative to improving student’ writing abilities. Our writing tutors are skilled writers with experience teaching students the ways of writing.
We tutor students in primary, intermediate, and advanced math. Whether a student is struggling with basic number sense or more complex algebraic logarithms, we will develop a plan to help teach the concepts that the student is seeing in the classroom as well as the gaps that have developed over the years. Our math tutors not only know the material, but they are also adept at simplifying and explaining the concepts for our students to understand, retain, and apply.
Science is a fascinating subject, but also a difficult subject for many student to understand. Our science tutors simplify the concepts to increase comprehension, while also engaging students to create more interest in the subject. We instruct our students in basic science, biology, chemistry, and physics.
We tutor students in history and other social studies classes. History requires organizational skills for the large amount of names, dates, vocabulary, and ideas. Our history tutors instruct students not only on the concepts of history, but also on the skills needed to comprehend and retain the information.
Students who are fluent in a second language have a clear advantage academically, and later they will have an advantage professionally. We have tutors who are fluent in a variety of languages, and they help our language students increase vocabulary, improve written and oral comprehension, and practice conversational skills.
