Students and parents both want academic success – high grades and the pride that comes with achievement. Our St. Louis belief is that any , 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 performance (a “C” student) and high performance (an “A” student) turns on what a student does outside of class.
Any has the same essential components: attendance, participation, attentiveness, , and testing. Most teachers give students points for each category; however, simply showing up on a regular basis and “doing” will not guarantee a good grade.
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.
Our St. Louis tutors students become stronger independent learners by developing a customized approach to organization, cognition, and retention. Students can spend hours working very hard but working inefficiently to the point their effort fails to translate into results. Our tutors create personalized organizational plans so that students learn how to maximize time, work efficiently and retain key information not just for the short term but for the long term.

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, whether with an online tutor 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?
