Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Seeing as every child has specialized needs, instilling helpful habits that emphasize positive behaviors and attitudes towards study habits won’t necessary be one size fits all. That’s where our Personalized Tutoring programs can help. Special attention will be paid to the following skill sets:

  • Time management: Your child will learn to organize and prioritize much more effectively.
  • Active reading strategies: Stronger comprehension is an important asset across all subjects.
  • Effective note taking: Flash cards, color coding and other techniques make time spent studying more productive.
  • Research skills: Learning how to assess sources and write a bibliography, focusing on particular subjects.
  • Mastering the writing process: In time, your son or daughter will become an effective, engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Including how to locate and evaluate information, and share digital assets responsibly.
