CUSTOMIZED LEARNING. BETTER PERFORMANCE
Private academic tutoring is no longer seen as a last resort for struggling students. Rather, it can complement classroom instruction and in some cases is necessary given the lack of personal attention available in regular and secondary school classes today. We understand that everyone learns a little differently, so we customize our teaching approach, adapting to the individual student's needs. We also work together with the teachers at our students' schools. This not only speeds up the learning process, but it allows the student to maximize their retention of information and enjoy the process of learning.

Lessons are offered on a private, hourly basis. Ask us about discounts for multiple sessions booked in the same week! Most students schedule weekly appointments where the instructor can both help with homework and prepare for tests. This ensures that our students are ahead of the game, giving them the confidence they need to succeed!
Summer Tutoring and Test Prep
The Learning Shack provides a full spectrum of tutoring programs over the summer months. We continue to offer our regular services, including Individual and Small Group In-Home and In-Office Tutoring, Test Prep, and skills improvement -- as well as offering educational support for any summer school classes.
Improve Your Skills Or Get Help In Summer School
Skill Improvement: The summer months are a great time to build and develop your child's academic and study skills. There is ample time to significantly improve their skills and self-confidence in anticipation of the new school year. In addition, if your child is behind in any subject, the summer also provides appropriate time to catch up.
Summer School Class Support: Whether your child is taking a required remedial course or a new course to simply get ahead, we can help them complete the task with ease. We will support them in the following ways: assist with homework assignments, review concepts from class, prepare for tests and quizzes, and instill strong study habits. Summer classes tend to be more intensive and fast paced than traditional classes. As such, assistance is critical during these months.
Test Prep: With the busy schedules and extracurricular activities most students participate in these days, summer SAT and SAT is a great time to get prepared for fall tests before the school load becomes unmanageable. We can customize our programs to your schedule so no need to worry about missing classes due to vacations or holiday plans. Ask us about programs here!
