Why Us?

Personalized Learning

At Nourishing Minds Tutoring, all tutoring sessions are completely tailored to match your child’s specific educational needs. Comparing this to a normal classroom setting, the teacher may have to differentiate each lesson for almost 30 pupils, making it very difficult to account for every child’s educational needs. Our services ensure that your child receives the undivided attention of their tutor.

Engaging Lessons

We aim to make every lesson enjoyable for your child. By getting to know their likes and interests, we tailor learning activities so that they are stimulating and inspiring. While worksheets can be a valuable tool for learning, we will make learning come alive by providing practical and hands-on activities whenever possible.

Convenience

Tutoring sessions will take place in the comfort and convenience of your own home. We understand that many families are faced with time constraints and busy schedules. We will work with your busy schedule to arrange a time that fits into your day.

Assessment

Assessments are carried out regularly in schools. However, these assessments compare your child’s performance to a national benchmark, and will not indicate where your child may be struggling. Nourishing Minds Tutoring conducts assessments that are diagnostic in nature, so we are able to pinpoint exactly where intervention is needed to ensure that teaching and learning activities are structured according to your child’s specific educational needs. Upon completion of our assessments we provide detailed analysis to parents.

Affordable

Research has shown that tutoring yields a fantastic return on your investment and can have a profound impact on your child’s academic success. We offer extremely competitive pricing, in fact, we are cheaper than the corporate tutoring centers, and we come to you! Nourishing Minds Tutoring has no registration fees, and we do not lock you into long term commitments. Please contact us for more information.

Common Core

We understand the Common Core. All of our assessments and lessons are linked to the Learning Standards of the Common Core State Standards of New York. We set educational targets that are directly aligned with the learning standards to ensure crossover with the education your child receives at school.

Communication

We offer superior communication with parents. You will receive a summary of every tutoring session, and regular reports and feedback regarding the progress of your child.  We are always only an email or phone call away, and always encourage parents to contact us with any comments, concerns, or suggestions they may have. Furthermore, we will work with your child’s classroom teacher (with permission) to ensure the needs of your child are being met.

Qualified

Our tutors are certified elementary school teachers, have a combined experience of over 17 years of classroom teaching, and 8 years tutoring. We are highly professional, committed, and know what it takes to help children learn.
