The Student Connection

Grade School Skill Development

skill_developmentFor years, connecting students with success has been our mission!

We have accomplished this and helped countless students through highly specialized one-on-one tutoring courses featuring:

Study Skills
Study Smarter not Harder! Let us help your student balance academics and extracurricular commitments.  “Study is nothing else but a possession of the mind”-Thomas Hobbes, English philosopher 1588 – 1679.

Specialized Reading Development
Certified tutors offer Orton-Gillingham based instruction. This is a multisensory, scientifically based approach to reading. Studies have identified this as one of the most effective strategies for students struggling with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADHD, although all types of  learners have experienced tremendous success.  All tenets of reading are introduced and explored until mastery is achieved.

  • Phonemic Awareness
  • Phonetic Skills
  • Vocabulary Development
  • Reading Fluency
  • Reading Comprehension

Specialized Mathematics Development
Our highly qualified math tutors actually enjoy math; but careful-their enthusiasm may be contagious!  Our tutors break difficult concepts into manageable components and work with students to develop individualized success strategies.

Test Taking Strategies and Managing Text Anxiety
Does your student struggle with text anxiety? It is natural to experience some level of anxiety during tests, however when students are not achieving results at their expected potential, it becomes problematic.  We work with students to find the right approach in preparing for tests exploring a multitude of strategies.

Research and Writing Papers
“It was a dark and stormy night…Good writing takes enormous concentration.”
Snoopy, Peanuts Charles Schulz, 1922 – 2000 American cartoonist

Writing has a wide range of style;  just as each student is unique, as writers we are all unique as well. Our tutors can help you find your “voice”, as well as develop a successful writing piece by organizing content effectively and working through the steps of the writing process.
