Online Tutoring Now Available!
Per the Dallas County "Shelter in Place" regulations, our Learning Center is temporarily closed. However, we have expanded our online session availability. Using Zoom Conferencing, our online sessions include two-way video conferencing, screen sharing and a digital whiteboard to replicate in-person instruction. For example, our staff will use stylus pens to write math on the whiteboard as they would in-person.
Our staff is trained to help students build Executive Functioning skills. We help our clients get organized and make a study plan using our digital Student Planning Sheet. We help students think through chunking their work, scheduling study time, keeping notes and building study skills — all of this, in addition to tutoring academics.

Star Sessions: Build Independence in Learning
Our innovative approach to tutoring focuses on strengthening Executive Functioning skills in the context of the student's coursework. Students come to work on their core academic subjects with us for two-to-three hours, and while they are here, they will:
complete a significant amount of homework;
study for exams;
build effective organizational practices;
create a work plan for the week;
learn study skills;
develop focus and time management skills; and
foster a sense of independence.
Star Sessions tutors have two roles: to instruct academics and to coach students. We believe in self-advocacy, so our tutors mentor their students on how to communicate with teachers and adults. Students will be thrilled by the amount of work they accomplish in our focused, distraction-free environment. Schedule a free consultation to see why our families love Star Sessions.
Please note: that Star Sessions is available with our online program. For online enrollment, we offer two 60-to-90 minute lessons per week (instead of one two-to-three hour lesson) for the same cost!
Private Tutoring: Content Support and Test Prep
Our individualized tutoring service follows a traditional model of one-on-one, direct subject instruction which scaffolds and complements daily classroom instruction. We match students with tutors and customize our approach based on each student's unique background and learning profile. For students requiring remediation, our tutors will identify underlying skill deficiencies, fill the gaps, and progress to more complex topics. We also pre-teach upcoming topics to ensure classroom readiness. And, we help advanced students achieve their maximum potential by providing additional enrichment.
To maximize comfort and convenience, private tutoring is available at our center, or in-home, at the local library, or at your child's school (with administration's approval). Our expert tutors cover most grades and core subjects. We can help with many AP / IB courses and we also prepare students for standardized exams like the STAAR, ISEE, PSAT, SAT, ACT and TExES EC-6. Maximize your student's college and career readiness with Star Tutoring Centers!
