A COMPASSION-BASED APPROACH
The academic confidence of young learners takes years to develop but can be lost in months. A brief illness, an inexperienced teacher, a mismatch in learning style, or just plain old bad luck can lead to knowledge gaps and poor test grades. Left unresolved, these can snowball into self-doubt, anxiety, more knowledge gaps…and even worse performance on tests.
We often find that students who come to us with academic issues are trapped in this vicious cycle, and are more intimidated by their fear of the material than the material itself. They tell themselves that they are just “not good at it,” and when faced with the unfamiliar, they withdraw.
The classroom waits for no-one, but one-on-one tutoring is an ideal environment to bridge knowledge gaps, re-build confidence, and help struggling learners catch up via focused, personalized attention.
To that end, our tutors aim to be relatable, positive role models who are fully invested in their student’s success. We understand that everyone learns differently and we have the freedom to select teaching methods that are best suited for each student.
We backtrack to solidify foundational skills, and work with each student’s attention span and personality to introduce them to unfamiliar concepts in a gradual but captivating manner. We explore various approaches to individual problems and help students see the connections within and between subjects.
Most importantly, we strive to instill in our students the idea that learning is a fun, empowering, creative activity, and that “being good” at math and science – or just about anything else – is a skill that they can master, not an innate character trait.
Mastery creates real, earned confidence, and that confidence allows students to bravely tackle new and unfamiliar problems, both in the classroom and in life.
We transform “I don’t know how to do this” into “I know I can figure it out!”

“Our family worked with Liz who did an amazing job with our 8 year old daughter in terms of turning things around with math and really boosting our daughter's confidence. The impact was almost immediate and has been sustained. Our daughter is very grateful that Liz got her out of the 'bad math place'.”Laurie S.Carol Gardens
