At Home Tutoring provides flexible tutoring at your home. We are available weekdays and weekends, even through holidays and summer break. After assessing a student’s needs, tutors will determine if supplemental materials are needed and create a curriculum to help them succeed.

Our test prep can be completely individualized.
The most successful way to prepare students for the test is to break down each section into manageable subtexts systematically. Each skill is introduced, taught, and reinforced. We leave no stone unturned. As students obtain mastery of each section, we then introduce the SAT/ACT exam as a complete unit.
Whether enrolled in our SAT one-on-one tutoring or small group courses, our students will learn the exact skills and strategies they need, in the way they need to learn them. We are successful at raising students scores because we know the test and we know the student.
We provide students with the tools and tricks to maximize their SAT scores.
Although one-on-one tutoring may be most effective, we can work with groups of up to four students, provided that the students and their families all know one another (e.g., a homeschooling group, or students who attend the same school, house of worship, etc.) The cost per student decreases with each additional student in the session. It is very important that the students in the group all be on about the same level and ability, and that they are capable of working well together, and being supportive of one another.
If you are several grades below grade level. which is extremely common, we must first bring you up to grade level, or close, before we can tackle problems on grade level. This can go very quickly if you are willing to work hard, but it is certainly not something that can be accomplished within one or two sessions. Almost all of the trouble that students have is due to the fact that they do not fully understand all of the previous topics upon which the current topic is based, and they are either unwilling, or do not have the time to go back and fill in the gaps.
The point of the tutoring session is not just to “show” you how to do a particular problem so that you’ll forget the moment you walk out the door. The point is to get you to fully understand the problem and the thought process behind it, so that if you see something related to it on an exam, you will immediately know what to do..
Small group tutoring includes but is not limited to:
Sometimes college students need help too! As our tutors tend to be college students, it is worth asking if a college course is giving you or someone you know a hard time. You'll never know if we have a good fit until you ask.
