We also provide semi-private tutoring for groups of two or three children, homeschool support or instruction, and learning pod support or instruction.
Here To Help
Our tutors are trained in several literacy programs, including those based on Orton-Gilingham principles, such as Wilson Fundations and Preventing Academic Failure (PAF). We are trained to teach different reading and writing strategies, based on what your child needs support with. Many of our tutors have experience using Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, a curriculum used in many schools across NYC. We can help your child reach the next reading level, understand spelling patterns, and become a more organized writer. Our tutors are in constant communication with their students’ teachers to make sure our work supports the work they are doing in school.
Present-day math is taught very differently from the way many of us were taught as children. There is now more emphasis on being able to show your understanding of mathematical concepts rather than simply being able to memorize number facts. Our teachers can help your child understand the math they are doing in school and have the confidence to explain their thinking to others! Some of the curricula our tutors use in their schools include: EngageNY, TERC Investigations, and Singapore Math.
Meet Grade Level Standards
Having a private tutor can be very beneficial for children who need extra support to meet grade level standards. Because all of our tutors are current or previous classroom teachers, we understand expectations to meet standards and are able to tailor sessions to help reach those goals. Private tutoring provides your child with the specific and targeted intervention and support they need and might not receive at school.
Is your child ready to learn more but limited by what is being taught in the classroom? Often children who excel academically at school might feel bored or uninterested because they easily understand the content that is being taught to them, and they are looking to learn more. Our elementary tutors can challenge your child by providing sessions that are stimulating and academically rigorous to keep them excited about learning!
