Private 1-On-1 Tutoring Approach/Materials We Use
We work together with the student, his/her parents, and teachers to:
- Tackle new academic challenges in the face of limited time
Private tutoring provides students at all levels of ability with the focus and assistance needed to achieve at high levels. Finding time during the school day can be difficult, given their busy schedules in school, sports, and other extracurricular activities.
- Strengthen weak foundations
Many math students have a need to strengthen their foundations from previous years, as well as to remain proficient on current topics this fall.
- Improve problem-solving techniques
Learning new concepts, methodologies, and techniques can become problematic, unless combined with applications to pique students’ interest.
- Optimize test-taking strategies
Students becoming anxious about ACT, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests in math and physics need a systematic way to bolster the basics, to optimize their time, and to manage the overall test-taking experience.
- Organize course materials
Students often need guidance organizing and maintaining class notes, assignments, schedules, due dates, etc. – all of which are key elements for doing well in the course.
- Use technology when appropriate
Many math and physics courses are using popular technology tools such as graphing calculators, spreadsheets, and statistical software to support, enhance, and reinforce the basics. Students will be expected to use prepared worksheets/homework sets emailed to them ahead of time to work on prior to our next meeting, which we will review at that time.
