We actively nurtures open communication and understanding with our students; really getting to know how they learn. We have experience working with specific learning needs, including students who are physically or emotionally impaired, students with ADD/ADHD, and those with Autism. Knowing learning styles and cultivating individual lessons, using each of our student’s unique interests, allow us to customize lessons. Maintaining communication with the parents of our students is just as important and we connect parents by allowing parents and guardians to observe sessions. We offer both mornings and afternoon sessions with group and one-on-one tutoring depending on your child's needs. No matter the course, we offer a classroom like setting for each one of our students as a way to engage their focus.
