Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

We know that every child has unique needs, which means there's no "one size fits all" way to instill practical study skills and reinforce positive behaviors. That’s where our Personalized Tutoring programs can help. You can expect the following skill sets to be covered:

  • Time management: Your child will learn how to organize and prioritize, developing more efficient study skills along the way.
  • Active reading strategies: Developing better comprehension skills will help your child across all subjects.
  • Effective note taking strategies: Using tools like flash cards and color coding can make studying more effective.
  • Research skills: Focusing on a particular subject including evaluating sources and writing a bibliography.
  • Mastering the writing process: With practice, your child will become a stronger, more engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Including learning how to locate, evaluate and share digital informational responsibly.
