Our teaching philosophy is based upon a firm belief that every child can succeed at school, given the proper encouragement, motivation and tools. We believe that a tutor’s most important job is to listen and observe how your child works and learns, and then provide each student with strategies to work and learn more effectively. We have two goals. Our first goal is to reach underachieving students as early as possible and teach them effective and lifelong learning strategies and problem solving skills. Our second goal is to keep students who are already doing well on the road to higher achievements. Children who are doing well need challenging work to keep them focused. Our strategies develop a cycle of confidence, motivation, and academic success that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
The program is run by a NYS licensed teacher. To maintain our high quality of service, we recruit and thoroughly train only the best tutors. They are not only experts in their subject areas – they are also excellent and compassionate tutors who will teach your children learning strategies to help them become independent learners.
The learning strategies that we employ have been used for over a decade, and have proven to be very successful. We have turned around the outcome of children that were on the verge of getting left back. They made significant improvements and moved on to the next grade. A true testament to our strategies are pleased parents who continue to return year after year to maintain their child’s success.
Our system starts with a thorough assessment of your child’s abilities, and an understanding of his or her unique situation. We then expose our students to a variety of strategies that improve their ability to learn. The results are usually dramatic, and launch students into a lifelong love of learning.
