Grade School

We are experienced at tutoring grade-schoolers in almost all subjects, particulary reading, math, and science.  We also tutor other subjects as well, including Spanish--just ask!

We prefer to teach using phonetics.  This is a reading method that focuses on sounding out words rather than memorizing.  This is adaptable to students at many different levels from just learning to read through the rest of grade school.

We use a variety of techniques that help students visualize math, so students can develop a feel for the subject.  This is a very successful technique that can be used from begining arithmetic through algebra.

We focus on teaching the scientific method and how concepts tie into each other as well as daily life.  Also, we teach the students to visualize concepts, so the science is less abstract.  This is extremely useful in helping students connect with the material.
