Tutoring is a process. It takes time for students to mature academically, as they get used to the expectations of different teachers and subject matter. Good tutoring helps students gain confidence in a course or for a test, so they walk into the classroom and feel in control. Good tutoring allows students to grasp subject matter that they couldn’t pick up for whatever reason in the larger, more impersonal setting of a school classroom. Finally, good tutoring helps students become more independent in their approach to learning. We believe an individualized approach to tutoring and the development of a mentor-student relationship are the fastest, most constructive ways to achieve these goals.
