Tutors are capable of tutoring all core
subjects: math, science, English, history, and a foreign

with whatever subject you need to study for that day.
Before meeting with students, our tutors undergo training.
Topics covered include how to make a student feel
comfortable, how to approach assignments, and how
to present the same piece of information in a variety
of ways, depending upon students' learning styles.

who have learning differences and those who have
simply given up. In addition to the principal training,
tutors attend two mandatory continuing education seminars
per semester. Experts in our offices are available
to counsel tutors through any challenges that may
