Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Since no two children are exactly alike, the best approach for encouraging smart study habits and reinforcing positive attitudes and behaviors won’t be the same across the board. Luckily, our Personalized Tutoring programs take that into consideration. A wide range of skills are covered, including:

  • 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.
