SUBJECT TUTORING


Elementary School Tutoring Programs

OUR PROGRAMS START WITH A PERSONAL CONVERSATION

Our program starts with a personal conversation. We want to hear from you, the parent, about what you feel are your child’s strengths and opportunities for growth.  After learning about your child’s academic history, we will develop the appropriate 1 to 1 tutoring program based on your student’s needs.

As a parent, it’s difficult to see your child struggle in school. Perhaps your child has trouble with a particular subject or you notice that grades have dropped after entering a new school year. You want your child to succeed in school and for him or her to be a confident learner. 

Your child will be matched with one of our highly qualified and expertly trained tutors, who will prescribe the appropriate skills development program in reading comprehension, math, and/or writing proficiency in a 1 to 1 tutoring setting.  Our tutors will also integrate your child’s daily homework into the tutoring sessions when appropriate so that your child is mastering new skills while earning better grades in school.  

Be assured, that whether your child needs to catch up, keep up, or be enriched our team works to tailor a tutoring program as unique as your child. 

I like coming to see my tutor because she helps me learn new things. I get to do my homework with her so I don’t fight with my mom about it. I feel smart too.

Middle School/Junior High Students

RECEIVE A CUSTOMIZED CURRICULUM TO ENSURE SUCCESS

Our program starts with a personal conversation. We want to hear from you, the parent, about what you feel are your child’s strengths and opportunities for growth.  After learning about your child’s academic history, we will develop the appropriate 1 to 1 tutoring program based on your student’s needs. Expectations for academic achievement change in Middle School and Junior High. We often see students encountering difficulties because they are unable to approach assignments in a functional way, known as Executive Functioning.

Executive functioning is used to perform activities such as planning, organizing, strategizing, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space. If a student struggles in any of these areas, regardless of intelligence, grades can plummet, along with confidence.

Recognizing the importance of executive functioning, our instructors are selected for their expertise in study strategies, organization, and innovative approaches to learning. Our program embodies three core components—reading, math, and writing—as well as other popular subjects, such as science and social studies. Our instructors customize the student’s curriculum based on homework, current class projects, and exams.  When needed, we also offer a full math or reading assessment followed by the same quality, targeted instruction.

Our Middle School and Junior High tutoring programs empower students and builds their self-esteem as they begin mastering higher level subjects in order to successfully prepare for high school.

I want to be my child’s mother, not their teacher. With Academic Tutoring Center, I can.

High School Students

RECEIVE INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION THAT IMPROVES BOTH STUDY SKILLS AND CONFIDENCE

Our program starts with a personal conversation. We want to hear from you, the parent, about what you feel are your child’s strengths and opportunities for growth.  After learning about your child’s academic history, we will develop the appropriate 1 to 1 tutoring program based on your student’s needs.

Mastering skills and earning high grades is important for high school students as they prepare for college. We work with all levels of high school students, from those who are struggling to those who just need a little extra help to earn an “A” on their report card.

Our individualized program is customized for your child based on classroom curriculum, homework assignments, projects, and tests.  Our instructors collaborate with students to improve their study skills, organizational efficiency, and time management while building their self-esteem through positive reinforcement.

Tutors focus on developing strategies which allow students to become independent learners.  Tutoring is provided in all subject areas including Math at all levels, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, and History.

Our high school 1 to 1 tutoring helps students successfully transition to college, university, vocation, and career.

I was a little nervous about how hard my college classes were going to be. I am a freshman at the University of Indiana and doing so well thanks to the methods I learned and the confidence I gained working with my tutor at Academic Tutoring.
