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. That’s where our Personalized Tutoring program can make a difference. Special attention will be paid to the following skill sets:

  • 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.
