Early Learners Tutoring
Give your child the opportunity to get ahead before they’ve even begun!
Children experience critical cognitive development during their first few years of life. Young children who receive high quality education early on are less likely to repeat grades, need special education, or drop out of school. Our tutors make early learning fun and engaging so your students can start school with confidence.
- What do you work on in a typical session? Our sessions cover the fundamentals of reading, writing, and basic math. We use a combination of worksheets, interactive games and computer programs to ensure that students stay engaged throughout the session.
- How long are your sessions? For this age group, sessions are 45 minutes long with a 15 minutes parent-tutor conference built into each session.
- Do you recommend any online reading programs? Yes, we can include HeadSprout in your K-Readiness package at no extra charge. This interactive online program helps students learn new words and sound combinations in a fun and engaging way.
- Do you tutor 3 and 4-year-old students? We recommend enrolling your students only once they have no trouble concentrating for a full 45 minute session.
