Why Choose a Professional Tutor?

  • This is our full-time career. We have the time and focus to be fully dedicated to helping our students achieve their personal and academic goals. 

  •  We have professional experience working as mentors for teens. We understand the challenges of school and the pressures on students. Being an academic mentor goes beyond teaching the material; therefore, we also work to help students discover their own ability to learn, persevere, and grow. 

  • We create a detailed plan for each student. Lessons are comprehensive, interactive, and fun. We understand that different learners need different modes of teaching; therefore, we tailor our lessons to students' specific needs. We are experienced in teaching for different modes of learning and learning disabilities. 

  • We work with the family. We keep the family informed (via regular emails & phone calls) on their child's goals, progress, and homework, as well as our plan for upcoming lessons.

  • We help prepare students for higher education. In addition to helping students learn specific content, we work with them on strategies for academic success beyond high school. Specific focus is given to study habits, organization, and personal goal setting.
