Brilliant but also Charismatic
We understand that it’s one thing to be brilliant but a whole other skill to make something of these smarts.
We start by only hiring tutors with a demonstrated history of academic success and professionalism.
Then we train them in the ways of tutoring, planning, scheduling, and project management.
We know how to form a connection with your child that will enable us to both lead by example and by instruction.
