What is Tutoring?

by | Nov 20, 2023

So what is tutoring exactly? Here at TenneyTutors we pride ourselves on our one-to-one, online style of tutoring. Every single one of our tutors are one-to-one specialized private school teachers at our school: The Tenney School. The benefit of having a private school teacher as a tutor is the quality of tutoring you receive. You get the private school teaching experience at an affordable, $90 session that can be scheduled as many times as you like!

These tutors are specialized in a variety of different subjects and tutor these subjects for students in grades 5 – 12. The benefit of tutoring lies with the one-on-one instruction a student receives for a subject. Tutors are also better able to identify weaknesses in a student for a particular lesson or concept.

How Do You Know You Need Tutoring?

Many students and parents think tutoring is only necessary for when a student is struggling in a class, but that isn’t necessarily true. While tutoring excels in this regard, it can also be used to help get ahead or explore other concepts and skills. Many students who are thinking about taking AP classes may sign up for tutoring to help with preparation of the AP exam. The reason for this, is that AP classes tend to move at a quick pace, so having a supplemental tutor to help focus in on preparing for the AP exam can help alleviate some of the stress during class time. Many AP teachers will even suggest this if students express interest in taking the AP exam.

Another benefit of tutoring, is hiring other types of tutors outside of a student’s class schedule. Our college counseling and executive functioning tutors are great for preparing students for their future. Our college counseling tutor will help provide a plan for students on their road to college. This preparation is essential for students looking to get into a higher level school or need more direction after high school.

Our executive functioning tutor, specializes in preparing students with more organization tips. These organization tips are essential for success in high school and many students don’t have proper executive functioning skills. This is a great tutor to enlist for students with learning differences such as: anxiety, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, etc.
