Middle School/Junior High Students


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.
