You can be sure that your child’s tutor will have the insight, empathy, techniques, strategies and passion to help guide your child and your family to success.

Each member of our team holds a valid teaching certificate, Masters degree, MBA, Ph.D., or other accredited certifications and/or degrees.

Our tutors’ credentials include, but not limited to the following:

  • Core Curriculum Specialists
  • Education Certifications
  • Engineering Degrees
  • Master’s Degrees
  • MBA’s
  • Ph. D.’s
  • Study Skills/ Organizational skills

In addition to the expertise the tutors maintain within their fields, they have also been selected for their ability to empathize, connect and collaborate with students. Students learn in a meaningful way resulting in a boost of self-confidence. A confident learner is a thriving learner.

Each student who is in need of support is assessed to identify their present skill level, as well as the specific areas of reading comprehension and identifies their strengths and weaknesses. This assists the tutors in developing a plan of instruction to help the student learn the necessary skills to improve their reading.

We draw from our deep knowledge of learning strategies to:

  • Customize and adapt methodologies to meet each child’s unique learning style
  • Establish short and long term goals and objectives
  • Build self-confidence, awareness, and self-advocacy skills
