Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Every child is unique. That means there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for their education, especially when it comes to behaviors and attitudes that affect performance in every subject. Rest assured, our Personalized Tutoring program takes into account your child’s unique needs. Here are a few of the skill sets we teach:

  • Techniques for active reading: Strengthened comprehension skills means better understanding in all classes.
  • Key writing competencies: We can help students communicate more clearly through writing.
  • Smart note-taking strategies: We can help make study time as productive as possible through practical techniques like flash cards and color-coding.
  • Time management: As with any challenging workload, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start. We’ll help your child learn how to effectively organize and prioritize homework.
  • Research skills: We take a look at specific subjects and explore the ideal ways to evaluate sources and prepare bibliographies.
  • Cyber safety: We can help your budding learner find, evaluate and share digital information in a safe and responsible manner.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

From getting more proficient at studying and advanced research to setting smart goals, we can help teens enrich skills that they can take with them into adulthood. Our tutors are here to provide the motivation and inspiration students need to achieve all their goals. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:
