Returning to the classroom is exciting! It can also be complicated, as families continue to try to make sense of education with Covid-19 in the backdrop, and of the current school year overall. Despite the unpredictability of the present moment, we remain committed to providing our clients with the best educational support available. Whether it be via an online platform, in-person, or through a hybrid approach, our tutors are prepared to work with students of all ages, in all subjects, in a way that suits their needs.
Our programs are customized to meet the particular needs and styles of each individual student. We place equal amounts of emphasis on content, strategy, and emotional support, as we ensure that students are fully equipped with the tools and confidence needed to reach their personal potential on test day. Our tutors minimize stress and maximize ability, while making the process meaningful and enjoyable along the way.
We combine proven methods of education with holistic teaching approaches, crafting individualized enrichment and mentoring programs for our students. Our goal is to appeal to the innate interest in achievement that exists within every child, and enhance a student’s strengths while addressing any and all needs related to academia, organization or confidence. Oh, and we know how to make tutoring fun for our students.
At the core of a student’s scholastic approach is a collection of habits and values. We take an inside-out approach, helping students find a connection to academia as the first step towards autonomy. By establishing a sense of meaning within every child, our tutors help students master the art of learning how to learn. We aim to enhance functionality while helping children become not just good students, but great learners.
We define critical thinking as the attempt to ensure that what one believes has a high probability of being accurate or true. Clear and evidence-based thinking leads to improvement in writing, reading comprehension, test-taking, and rational cognition overall. The ability to discern validity and truth, from a variety of perspectives, is foundational to learning.
Our Intake Process
Families begin the process by meeting with an HT Director for a consultation, either at our Manhattan office or online. This is an opportunity to answer questions and outline details of the adventure to come. The consultation is immediately followed by an assessment with the student, allowing us to make an ideal pairing amongst our esteemed staff of tutors and coaches for ongoing sessions.
