We tutor in high school mathematics through AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics. Please ask about availability for tutoring in a science, English, or social sciences class.
The following is a list of some guidelines that all Perspective Educational Services tutors follow, designed to foster a positive and effective tutoring environment.
•Inspire students to challenge themselves and assist them in meeting the challenges presented by their teachers. Stay positive, recognize strengths, and help build confidence
•Circle back to topics from a student's academic past. Revisit previous lessons, strengthen core skills.
•Assist in the organization and structure of a student's work, including notebooks, folders and individual problems on a page. As is necessary for organization, revisit frequently.
•Make sure that a student can do more than understand a problem as he or she sees it done, but rather can ultimately proceed through a problem unassisted.
•Direct a student towards the manner in which he or she should spend time studying and practicing on his or her own, following the tutoring session.
•Communicate with parents, guardians, and others who take a role in supporting the student, as he or she grows and learns.
•Offer a broad perspective, in which the details of an individual lesson may be placed.
