Step 1

Comprehensive Diagnostic Skill Assessment

Students take a comprehensive diagnostic skill assessment to identify their academic readiness. The internationally acclaimed skill assessment, Let’s Go Learn, is taken in the comfort and convenience of the student’s own home.

Step 2

Personal Consultation

We meet with the student and his or her family in their home for a free personal consultation to review the assessment results and design a customized tutoring program.

Step 3

Personalized Curriculum

We custom-create a personalized curriculum that addresses each student’s specific needs and goals. No two students have the same curriculum! Our program combines three areas of academic achievement: remediation of skill gaps; assistance with current school assignments; and a boost ahead to challenge accelerated learners.

Step 4

Perfectly Matched Tutors

We carefully pair each student with a perfectly matched tutor, considering both academic needs and complementary personalities.
