We offer academic help to
American students in 6th-12th grades. We check over your child’s work and identify specific areas where understanding is weak, then we remediate and reteach in order to strengthen academic ability. We do not, however, “do the work” for your child. You may trust that our goal is to enhance your child’s skills in a way that is supportive through limited modeling and reteaching of vital concepts. By experiencing success, a student’s self-confidence and intrinsic motivation grows!
Affordable, Convenient, Available
We charge $25 per hour, payable to our individual Venmo accounts in advance of your appointment. If you prepay 4 hours in advance, you receive $10 off.
We can book appointments weekly or on an as-needed basis; however, please be aware that there will be times we are fully scheduled and unable to meet on short notice, so booking an appointment on a regular basis is a way to guarantee our availability.
With the lightning-fast growth of remote and e-learning, it’s more important than ever that students have extra support when needed.
