SPARK INDEPENDENCE with Star Sessions
Our innovative approach to tutoring focuses on strengthening executive functioning skills, resiliency, and independence in the context of the student's real coursework. Students come to work on their core academic subjects with us for three hours (two for middle school students), and while they are here, they will:
complete homework and projects;
study for exams;
build effective organizational practices;
learn study habits;
develop time management skills; and
foster a sense of achievement and independence.
Star Session tutors have two roles: to instruct academics and to coach students on how to build lifelong skills and advocate for themselves in the real world. In a comfortable, supervised small group environment, we encourage independence with accountability. Visit today to see why our families love Star Sessions.
IMPROVE GRADES with Private Tutoring
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 also help with many AP courses, IB courses, and preparing for standardized exams like the ACT, PSAT, SAT, SSAT and ISEE. Maximize your student's college and career readiness with college planning services from Star Tutoring Centers!
