Monday through Wednesday | 3:30pm-5pm
Our tutoring center is run by a director and team of tutors from the local universities who work with students one-on-one to assess where the student wants help with their school work. A plan is then created and daily goals decided.
Our tutors focus on the progress and growth of the student in their school work and help them to develop critical thinking skills, healthy studying habits, creating goals, and other skills that will help them to be successful and develop a lifelong love of learning.
We stress attendance, accountability, and responsibility and are in communication with the student’s parents and teachers to create a supportive team. We even provide a healthy snack and encourage interest in other areas such as music, sports, and art.
