What is your tutoring method?
Our tutoring is completely one-on-one. We don’t use a fixed tutoring method because we find that every student has different abilities and expectations. Instead, we customize our methods based on each student’s needs, abilities, and expectations. We explain the concepts by providing examples, and helping with their homework. Additionally, we review their tests with them, and provide them with extra practice problems.

Do you tutor any subjects other than math, physics and chemistry?
We are highly specialized in mathematics, physics and chemistry. We focus on these subjects rather than trying to teach many different subjects to attract more students.

Do you give assessment tests?
We give an assessment test upon request. An assessment test can be useful in a limited way; it may give us a general idea about the knowledge and skill level of the student. However, it does not give specific and detailed information on the areas of strength and the areas where improvement is needed. We can assess a student more accurately after a couple of tutoring sessions.

Do you do group tutoring?
We prefer to tutor one-on-one because we believe that this is much more beneficial for the student. If you would prefer group tutoring, we are willing to do that. However, we do not arrange the groups. We have ample classroom teaching experience.

Where do you tutor?
We tutor in our home, the student’s home, school or library depending on the student’s preference.

Can parents be present during tutoring sessions?
We welcome parents to be present during the tutoring sessions if they would like.

There are no contracts and no long-term commitments. Our tutoring service is flexible.
