Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Every child has different needs. That’s why a one-size-fits-all approach to learning just won’t work, especially when it comes to attitudes and behaviors that impact performance in every subject area. You can feel good knowing our Personalized Tutoring program zeros in on your child’s unique needs. Here are a few of the skill sets we teach:

  • Active reading techniques: Reading comprehension skills play a key role in all school subjects.
  • Conquering the writing process: We can help students become more skilled and proficient writers.
  • Helpful strategies for taking notes: Get smart about study time with practical and effective techniques like color-coding and flash cards.
  • Time management skills: Sometimes knowing where to begin is the hardest part. We’ll help your child learn how to successfully organize and prioritize a heavy workload.
  • Research strategies: We take a deep dive into specific subjects and look at the best ways to write bibliographies and evaluate sources.
  • Internet safety: We help kids learn how to use the internet safely and effectively, including finding, evaluating and sharing digital information in a responsible manner.
