Individual Tutoring

We work to meet your needs; therefore, we meet when you need to meet. We combine a variety of textbooks, techniques, and tools to provide your student with the best learning environment possible. Parents are always welcome to attend tutoring sessions.

Group Tutoring

For two or more students who need instruction in the same topic in a class-like setting, we offer group tutoring. Group tutoring rates start at $18 per student for a group of two, and $12 per student for a group of three or more.

Weekly Management

Weekly management can be great for students who work well on their own, but need a little more supervision. Our trained tutors will provide a weekly source of accountability, offering help in problem areas and input on correction of daily work. This program can be paired with our Diploma Program, our PDP program or custom made to fit your educational needs.

Tutoring fees range from $36.00 to $45.00 per hour, based upon the tutor and content. Group tutoring rates are $18 per student for a group of two students, and $12 per student for a group of 3 or more students.
