Our mission at Schoolhouse Tutoring® is to help students develop into successful, independent learners.
We believe the key to learning and academic success is finding the effective instruction and learning strategies that best meet each learner’s needs.
At Schoolhouse Tutoring®, all tutoring is one-on-one. There is only one student with one teacher, allowing each tutor to give 100% of her attention to the learner she is working with.
All tutoring is provided in a quiet, private room. Tutoring sessions a minimum of one occur and occur on regularly scheduled basis, typically two times per week.
The content of the tutoring sessions is determined by the learning goals set by the parents and students. There are no scripted sessions or step-by-step programs that each student must complete. The instruction and materials are adapted to meet the child’s needs, abilities, and skills.
