Self Regulated Learning Skills
We focus on improving the learning-centric behaviors of our students. We work with our students to improve their study skills, organizational skills, time management, communication, and other important domains that could affect their learning. Based on our years of experience in Psychology and Education, we encourage specific behaviors that we have found to foster learning. We don’t just teach material or provide homework help, we also teach the skills students need for self-motivation and for life-long learning.
Our students won’t be afraid to ask for help or let us know when they are not understanding the material. We encourage them to ask for help.
The addition of the Common Core standards emphasizes deeper learning and critical thinking skills in math and science. We’ll help your child acquire the skills needed to apply what they learn to newer concepts. Our science and math tutors receive extensive training in Common Core techniques and strategies. They’ll help your child know the ins and outs of Common Core.
Convenient for You
We work with you wherever is most convenient for you. We go to your home, or you come to us. We're also sure to work with your schedule.
Adaptable & Modern
We adapt our curriculum and teaching to the needs of each student. We also know times are changing-- we want to be right there at the convergence of education, technology, and mental wellness.
We based our program on strategies derived from “Motivation and Learning Strategies for College Success” by Drs. Seli and Dembo, principles of behaviorism, cognitive behavioral work, and social cognitive theories.
It's important for us to create a consistent environment for our students in order to really see change and improvement. We collaborate with everyone; from parents, to teachers, and of course, the students.
We recruit only the best science and math tutors who are currently enrolled in or have completed a teaching credential program or a counseling program. Not only do our tutors know their stuff, they also can teach it in a way that your child can understand.
