How can we help your High School Student Succeed?
The Student Connection doesn’t follow one specific program for tutoring. Each student is different and therefore each approach and style is different and personalized to the student. Students and tutors are placed together based on subject but also personality and learning style. Parents and teachers are involved in the process at The Student Connection, too.

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.
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.
