Tutoring Services


Our comprehensive Tutoring Services are second to none. We begin with a thorough diagnostic assessment to determine a customized learning program for each student.  Expert academic tutors will then work with each student individually to achieve pre-determined outcomes leading to improved scholastic performance.


Basic Reading:  We focus on the basic skills of phonics, vocabulary development, comprehension, and reading speed.  Our program works for students who are having difficulty with reading or are "falling behind" due to a variety of reasons, including dyslexia and ADD issues.


Advanced Reading:  We offer an accelerated program that emphasizes critical reading skills such as the analysis and synthesis of data, and how to effectively apply these critical thinking skills.  We also work with students to develop strong literary analysis and critiqueing abilities.


Writing:  We focus on the "writing process" and work with the skills necessary for students to think, organize, and express themselves on paper.  Students study rules of grammar, mechanics, sentence expansion and variation techniques, and a variety of writing styles.


English as a Second Language (ESL):  We develop language arts skills such as conversation, listening, reading, and writing.  We have worked successfully with students and parents with many different primary languages.


Basic and Advanced Math:  We emphasize mastery of basic skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percents, rations, proportions, and word problems.  Advanced topics include Pre-Alebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Statistics.  With most students, we work directly from their school academic textbooks.  When necessary, we re-teach mathematical concepts critical to the student's success in his or her current math course.


Foreign Languages:  These include Spanish, French, and more.  We provide skill development for students needing support in their school foreign language course, or programs for students wanting to learn another language on their own.


Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics:  Our science teachers work with students to develop their skills and understanding of scientific concepts and applications.


Study Skills:  Our programs are designed to improve study habits and grades by developing stronger skills in time management, organization, listening, note-taking, effective use of textbooks, speed reading, and test-taking strategies.


Test Preparation:  Our customized programs prepare students for standardized tests such as the ACT Explore, HSPT and ISEE (entrance exams for private high schools), CAHSEE, ACT Plan / ACT, PSAT/SAT, GED, GRE, GMAT, C-BEST, LSAT, ELS/ELM, ASVAB, TOEFL, and more.  We offer both group and individualized sessions.


Assessments:   A comprehensive battery of tests helps us determine strengths and weaknesses by specific skill area, as well as by grade level.  We also do vision and auditory screening for indications of problems in these areas that may impact a student's learning.
