Academic Tutoring

Academic Tutoring is a one-on-one service intended to help learners from Kindergarten through Grade 12.

Tutoring offers personalized learning support in the areas students need most, such as:

  • Reading skills, including phonemic awareness, fluency, and comprehension. Struggling readers can be tutored using the Barton Reading System, which is an Orton-Gillingham influenced, multisensory, systematic phonics program.
  • Writing skills for all ages. Our tutors can assist with skills like letter formation, or support more advanced concepts, such as essay writing.
  • Math skills, from fact fluency all the way through high school level content.

A learning disability is not required to receive services. Tutoring sessions are guaranteed to have at least 45 minutes of instructor support and can be offered both in person and virtually.

If you would like to know more about tutoring, please contact us. Our helpful staff will schedule an intake interview so the student can be personally matched with the tutor best-suited to help them achieve academic success.
