In order for you as a student to Prepare...Understand...Grow, you need someone in your corner who will Listen...Care...Understand...Share.
Tutoring is a long-term investment in your educational process. It takes more than a one-shot session to help you navigate the seas of academia. You need someone you can trust, confide in, believe is in your corner at all times.
We. Want. To. Help. All of us will admit to being caught in an academic pickle at some point in our learning careers. Please don't think of us as just a tutor...we want to form a long-term learning relationship with the student. We are your advocate. We strive to be the student's best friend.
Parents. Peer pressure. Boyfriends, girlfriends, family issues. You're grounded, your dog died, you didn't make the team. And you are convinced your teacher is speaking Swahili and everyone else gets it, all of it...except you.
We all have been there. Even the smartest kid in the class struggles with something. (Maybe not math...but something. Promise.)
Our philosophy towards tutoring is that academic preparation for a subject is just one small factor contributing to a student's overall success. We are your partner in the whole picture. We listen, we care, we understand, we share.
We are more than just math. We are more than just school. We are your academic partner in your preparation for life.
