In-Home Elementary School Tutoring
Key Academics provides in-home tutoring in elementary subjects for students from kindergarten through sixth grade. Tutors are Pennsylvania-certified elementary teachers chosen for their ability to keep students engaged in the learning process. They recognize that every student has a different learning style. The tutors help students achieve their maximum academic potential, either through extra support in a particular subject or with academic enrichment if they are already performing at grade level.
Students who fall behind in reading and math skills in elementary school are far more likely to fall further behind in middle school and high school. We address weaknesses in these subjects as well as enhance strengths. The tutoring can build a foundation of math, reading, science, social studies and writing skills that will benefit students for their entire academic career.
Developing organizational and study skills in the early years is crucial to future academic success. Many times, students who enter higher grades without these skills find it difficult to handle a complex schedule of courses and assignments. This is also true for gifted students, who don’t need to develop good study habits in earlier grades when academic programs are not as rigorous. Tutors teach students how to prioritize assignments, study for tests, and manage their time so that they can accomplish more.
Students develop their intellect and ability to use their imagination in the learning process. Creative methods are used to develop better critical thinking and problem solving skills in all subject areas. We delve into the student’s curriculum with hands on and experiential learning.
Whether tutoring for academic support or enrichment, students gain a sense of self confidence as a result of the strengths and skills they develop, which reinforces their desire to learn for their entire academic career.
