Tutoring

tutoring older student

We welcome students from grade school through college, tutoring them one-on-one or in small groups. Our tutors strive to enhance each student’s natural curiosity, imagination, and independent thinking by putting the student at the center of his or her educational experience.

Each program is self-paced and takes into account the student’s learning style, aptitude, and potential. After an initial evaluation, the student contracts with his or her tutor to work together to achieve the student’s goals within an agreed-upon time frame. Sessions are normally scheduled in 6-week or 12-week renewable blocks during the academic year, or as intensive summer tutorials.

Our tutors cover all the major academic disciplines:

  • English: reading comprehension, grammar, writing, and vocabulary
  • Mathematics: basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and statistics
  • Social studies and history
  • Science: General science, biology, chemistry and physics
  • Modern foreign languages: French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian and Japanese

“I was accepted Early Action to Yale and will be enrolling there undecided in the fall. When I consider the factors that led to this result, I think of the massive help you gave me in boosting my [SAT] scores to a level that I really didn’t think I had in me. Your books and teaching not only raised my scores, but also helped my vocabulary and grammar, both in writing and speech.”
