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. 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.
