What can I get help with?
What kind of commitment do I have to make?
Each program, just as each student, is individual. Together, we craft a program to best serve the needs of your student. To be fair to all concerned, especially to your student’s educational development, everyone involved needs to know the final goal, and then set a timeframe to achieve that goal. Our tutors must have a time frame to plan how best to address your situation and must make a commitment of their own to plan lessons geared for accomplishment and to work towards achievement. Without such a commitment, the plan will fail.
Your tutor will come to your home for the sessions with your student. This allows the family to continue their normal life and not have to make special trips to a learning center or a location far from home. The tutor will work with your student in safe, pleasant, and comfortable surroundings, the most effective place for learning to happen.
