Our mission is to empower every student to learn. We know that you care about your student's future, and we do too! That’s why we developed a framework for tutoring that puts focus on long-term learning rather than finding the fastest answer. Our tutors use a problem-solving approach we want your student to walk away with and use on future problems (in math and beyond!).
Our tutors balance questioning and explanation to ensure conceptual understanding while making students feel heard and supported. To do this, we established 3 pillars, which we feel are the most essential elements for a high-quality tutoring session: empathy, pedagogy, and precision.
- Empathy: tutors ensure that your student feels heard, supported, and successful
- Pedagogy: tutors balance questioning and explanation to introduce concepts at the right time and check your student's understanding throughout the problem-solving process
- Precision: tutors ensure that concepts are clear by using visual aids and by teasing out precise language
What does this mean for your student? Our experts say this approach leads to better...in the classroom. It's important to remember that the first problem will take longer than any subsequent problems because that's when most of the learning happens. Yup tutoring empowers your student with skills that they can apply to problems down the road. Of course, we’ll still be here to help!
