Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

When every child has specific needs, instilling positive attitudes and study habits can’t be a matter of one size fits all. That's why our Personalized Tutoring program is designed to be comprehensive. The following skill sets will be covered:

  • Effective note taking strategies: There are many ways to make study time more productive, such as flash cards and color coding.
  • Active reading strategies: Strong comprehension skills are important in every subject.
  • Research skills: Focusing on a particular subject, we explore how to evaluate sources and create a bibliography.
  • Mastering the writing process: We know how to bring out each student's inner writer, transforming them into much more effective communicators.
  • Time management: Take the stress out of growing workloads with advanced organizing and prioritizing skills.
  • Online safety: We help students learn how to use the internet safely, including how to evaluate and share digital informational responsibly.
