Would a tutor or academic coach be better to help my son or daughter?

Tutoring is an excellent way to get your student clarification on a particular subject, such as Math or English. Our tutors will work one-on-one with them to help identify where the disconnect is, work to clarify and understand material, practice to improve recall and create strategies to win at test-taking. 

Tutors take an active role in not only helping students with comprehension, but in building their confidence. Many times students think poorly about their abilities in a subject and can assume they are “just not good” at it. This is most often not the case, and the tutor can be instrumental in revealing this to them. This creates a completely different attitude in the student and naturally boosts confidence.

Academic coaching is similar in some ways to tutoring but goes further. Coaches will instruct students on how to manage time, get and stay organized, provide accountability to turn things in on time, and above all, they strive to get the very best from them. This comes in the form of weekly meetings, along with short readings, videos, or exercises, that teach them the value in incremental preparation and proactive strategies. They will work side-by-side to ensure they are applying the principles taught to everyday work in their classes. It is very comprehensive and will ensure that your son or daughter will not slip through the cracks of high school or college.
