Tutoring sessions are not all the same. We tailor each session around a specific goal, whether it be to better understand a topic, prepare for an exam, or even get ahead.
This type of tutoring is best for students that have an A/B class average, understand the topic theoretically but need help with the application. These types of sessions last one hour and are scheduled as needed throughout the term.
This type of tutoring session consists of a thorough review of the topics and practice problems. These sessions last between one and two hours and should be scheduled, at least, 3 days before the tests or quiz. This option is good for group sessions of three or less.
Best for students that have a B/C average in class, and need help gaining complete understanding. This tutoring includes explanation of the topic as well as sample and practice problems. These sessions are generally one or two hours weekly to achieve maximum results.
These types of sessions are best for students that feel overwhelmed because they lack a strong foundation in the class. These sessions should be scheduled at least twice a week, for one to two hours at a time, until the deficiencies are cleared.
We offer classes and tutoring for homeschool students. Contact us if you are looking to hire a teacher for a specific subject.
(ACT, SAT, GED, Compass, GACE)
These sessions cover test taking techniques, a thorough review of the topics with explanations, examples, and practice problems. These sessions are offered to individuals or groups, as an entire course or as “as needed” sessions.
Familiarize yourself with the subject matter by reviewing notes, learning key terms and formulas, skimming through the textbook and coming up with a list of specific questions to ask your tutor.
Tell the tutor what you wish to get out of the tutoring session. Before the session ends, make sure the tutor answers your questions thoroughly and that you can apply your knowledge without prompting or guidance from the tutor.
Tutoring is just the beginning. After your session, fill in your notes with any missing or new information. Apply your new knowledge by working more problems or using some other activity to reinforce and assess your understanding. Remember, perfect practice yields perfect results so…practice, Practice, PRACTICE!
Do not be afraid to ask your child what they learned in school or in their tutoring session. Ask them to teach you. Have realistic expectations but challenge them, as well.
