Our Approaches are Tailored to Your Child

Our philosophy is to work on skills while working on homework. Our task is to jointly figure out and apply strategies, tactics, and tricks that help the student learn the material AND express that learning on quizzes and tests.

Here are some examples:

  • Error analysis – we jointly assess mistakes on homework, quizzes, and tests. Over time, several patterns will be uncovered by the student, which will increase acceptance of issue areas.
  • Five Whys - adapted from manufacturing, dig into "routine" errors to find root causes.
  • My Personal Potential Pitfalls – a technique to help the student watch for errors.

We employ a consultative approach – listening to and learning from the student and parents about the student’s strengths as well as areas for improvement. Discovering “what works” is a joint project.

Here is what parents and students have to say:
