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.

  • Active reading: Nurturing strong comprehension skills will be helpful across all subjects.
  • Time management: Efficient study skills rely on the ability organize and prioritize work.
  • Note taking strategies: Utilizing tools such as flash cards and color coding can make studying more efficient.
  • Research: How to evaluate sources, find relevant information and write a bibliography.
  • Understanding the writing process: Through practice, your child will become a more engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Finding, evaluating and sharing digital information in a responsible way.
