Tutoring Philosophy
Our foremost goal is to provide a comfortable, confidence-building atmosphere where students can learn and excel in their subjects. In addition, we have worked hard over the years to create supplemental materials and curricula that mirror local school programs. Since our opening in 1988, we have developed close relationships with local schools that allow us to work within specific curricula and programs.

These elements – combined with a knowledgeable, friendly staff of tutors – are what make our students successful.

The Tutoring Center strives to provide the best possible service to our students and their families, and we are committed to the academic and personal success of each of our students. Our tutoring is therefore personalized to fit individual student needs. Many of our students benefit from long-term weekly appointments, but some may also come on a more short-term basis. We do not have contracts or session minimums, and there are no registration fees.
