"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."

-Albert Einstein

"I cannot emphasize enough the importance of a good teacher."

-Temple Grandin

The philosophy of One-on-One Tutoring focuses on the specific, unique needs of each student: we design an individualized education plan based on parents' insights about their child, input from teachers (when appropriate), and our understanding of the student's strengths and weaknesses.

Tutoring can focus on enrichment for students who are already achieving at a high level, or on remediation for those who are struggling academically.

With some students, we work briefly to fill in gaps or complete specific assignments (like preparation for SATs and ACTs or writing a college application essay); other students require ongoing support to gradually help them learn compensatory strategies and independence.

We work with students from kindergarten through college in all academic subject areas.

Areas of specialty include writing, reading comprehension and analysis, learning disabilities, middle and high-school sciences, math (through calculus), SAT and ACT preparation, and the college application essay.

All of our tutors have degrees in their areas; many have Master's degrees or Ph.D.'s, as well as teaching experience and training in working with learning disabilities.

"A good teacher isn't someone who gives the answers out to their kids but is understanding of needs and challenges and gives tools to help other people succeed."

-Justin Trudeau.
