Our clinics are ideal learning environments; Perfect work areas, quiet surroundings, ideal lighting & temperature, and they’re packed with educational materials & manipulatives for our tutors to draw upon the instant they’d be useful.
Better than In-Home
While the convenience of in-home tutoring might sound appealing, it’s usually the worst places to be tutored, both physically and psychologically. Why? Glad you asked.
When you think of “home,” you might consider it your refuge from work, your sanctuary, your place to unwind. The same is true for your child. How many adults thrill to the idea of bringing work home? Have you heard your child exclaim with glee, “Oh, boy, I get to do homework home tonight!”? (If you’ve ever heard that, we’d like to talk with you about possible future employment of your child at our organization.)
Coming to our clinic, students are already in the right frame of mind to achieve. Whether far behind, well ahead, or anywhere in between, they know they’re coming here to study and are thus more open to it. We’re not infringing on their personal space; they’re coming here to learn.
In-Home tutors simply can’t carry enough to be ready for every possible need. In contrast, at our clinics, that’s exactly what we’re ready to handle. No opportunity to clarify a tough new concept is ever missed. If one publisher’s series or manipulatives are proving to be less than ideal, we can instantly switch to another. We have dozens of publisher’s materials and a huge collection of teaching objects to help make sense of even the most abstract concepts.
Lastly, home has too many distractions. Even if you can minimize noise and keep siblings & pets at bay, home is where the TV, PlayStation, games, crafts, refrigerator, snacks, etc. all reside. …and the lure of them is great…
