Tutoring in St. Louis

Students and parents both want academic success – high grades and the pride that comes with achievement. Our belief about tutoring is that any student, regardless of skill or ability, can become a high achiever. Our tutors know from years of experience that students underperform because they have not learned the right approach or pathway to success.

The difference between average course performance (a “C” student) and high performance (an “A” student) turns on what a student does outside of the classroom.

Any school has the same essential components: attendance, class participation, attentiveness, homework, and testing. Most teachers give students points for each category; however, simply showing up on a regular basis and “doing” homework will not guarantee a good grade.

Increase Your Test Score

The fun yet challenging environment we offer with our learning center test prep encourages learning and keeps the focus on student success.

While no two students learn exactly alike in exactly the same manner, all students must struggle with independent learning. Where do I do my homework? When do I do my homework? How do I do my homework? Am I well organized? If not, how can I become better organized? Do I know how to study for quizzes and tests? If not, how can I develop better study skills? Students who discover the answers to these questions become high achievers.

Benefits of One-on-One Tutoring

All children do not respond the same in a classroom setting. Despite a teacher’s best efforts, that teacher will present information in a way that simply fails to “click” for some of the students. Because kids have varied learning styles and attention spans, as well as different baseline abilities in particular subjects, we know that some students simply underperform in the classroom. Consequently, many students can benefit from one-on-one tutoring sessions, whether with online tutoring sessions or in person with a teacher. A tutoring program can do wonders for a child’s confidence and understanding and relieve a worried parent.

Individual tutoring and academic coaching can have long-lasting effects on the academic future of a child. Once a student gets accustomed to one-on-one tutoring, they may continue to use tutors for SAT prep or even as a college student, increasing their chances of academic success.

So what are the benefits of tutoring one-on-one?

  • Private tutoring can tailor to a child’s learning style (i.e. – visual learner)
  • A private tutor can provide a deeper dive into individual subjects like math, writing, or social studies
  • More time for students to question a concept they don’t understand
  • An instructor can individualize lessons to target areas of weakness and increase test scores
  • Sessions can be scheduled for time lengths that suit a child’s learning needs

If your child is in need of one-on-one tutoring, schedule a tutoring appointment with Mackler Associates today. Let us put our years of individualized instruction experience to use for your child!
