"My tutor was absolutely amazing with my daughter! She was so patient with her! My daughter is always excited about her next session."
1st Grade Reading Student
"Our tutor seems to have been able to quickly build a good rapport with Cameron. I was worried that Cameron might be resistant to tutoring on the weekend, but those concerns were unnecessary. In fact, Cameron's face lights up when he hears that he will have tutoring this weekend. I think he looks forward to the sessions!"
2nd Grade Reading Student
"I love seeing the interaction between the student and the teacher and the way the tutor explains materials to the student that makes easy to understand. Giving enough time to the student to solve a math problem on its own instead of rushing and giving the answer."

The Learn To Be Difference

Our tutoring support is not time limited; we provide tutoring for as long as it takes for students to meet their goals.
Sessions are 1-on-1, not in groups. Studies show that tutoring works best when it is provided in a private session.
Sessions are always live, not pre-recorded, and take place in an online classroom with real-time interactions.
Our students work with the same tutor each week. We believe that consistent, positive relationships have the power to change lives!
The typical tutor/student connections last approximately six months and usually meet 4-8 times each month.
