What Parents Should Ask . . .
What Parents Should Do . . .
Question 1: Does my child need a tutor even if he/she is doing well in school?
Answer: Yes! Tutoring is for all students who want to become better students. Parents--look for these red flags.
Your child will benefit from our new learning strategies that will motivate him/her to want to do his/her best--especially in the face of the ever-increasing competition surrounding school and college admissions. Combined with our mc2 methodologies, we are able to tap into your child's unused capabilities, synchronizing the left and right sides of his/her brain, and teaching him/her to use his/her mind for whole brain thinking.
Question 2: Does my child need a tutor if he/she is doing well in school except for one subject?
Answer: Yes! Students often need help with only one subject at school and perhaps only for a short time. Due to disinterest or trouble with a teacher, they could be less inclined or motivated to succeed in a class. Tutoring will allow your child to specifically target one subject - learning the tools he/she will need to overcome what is challenging to him/her.
Question 3: Does my child need a tutor if he/she wants to get a high PSAT, SAT, ACT, SSAT, or MCAS score?
Answer: Yes! Your child will definitely benefit from a tutor while preparing for any of these standardized tests. We guarantee at least a 100 point score increase. We can teach your child proven and effective strategies for these tests to help him/her succeed. We use practice exams as a diagnostic tool to help us design a program tailored to your child's unique educational needs. Yes, 100% of our tutoring students get much higher standardized test scores.
Answer: Yes! Tutoring will help your child learn better study skills and organization. This will help him/her conquer his/her studies with increased enthusiasm. He/she will feel like he/she is confidently engaged in the classroom instead of just being taught.
Answer: Yes! Sometimes students cannot get the individual attention they need in the classroom, and it is often evidenced by lower grades or SAT scores. With individualized tutoring, students are not afraid to ask their own questions. Our experienced tutors identify even the smallest knowledge gap that could be keeping your child from "being the best they can be."
"The Boston school district ranked 208th out of 212 school districts in Massachusetts in 2002 for MCAS scores (MCAS Scores, Bostoncentral.com). In addition, only 65% of students take the SATs, with an average score of 887 out of 1600 in 2003 (About BPS, BPS Website)."
To view more information on the Boston Public Schools, visit their website at http://boston.k12.ma.us/bps/bpsglance.asp. The Learning Assistance Center at Xavier University looked into tutoring statistics for the 2003-2004 school year. To see their data, go to http://www.xu.edu/lac/ Tutoring_Stats.htm.
One-on-one tutoring by an experienced teacher has been proven to increase test scores, classroom performance, and participation. In addition, students become more confident, independent learners which raises their self-esteem.
Answer: Yes! At The Science of Learning Center, we study both the science and the art of learning to understand better the technology behind how the brain works. By synchronizing the functioning of both sides of the brain and strengthening the bridge that joins them, students are able to access ever deeper regions of their minds and, simultaneously, to improve dramatically their academic performances.
Secondly, we only use certified and experienced teachers in all subjects as tutors for our students. Our CEO, Linda Samuels, has a revolutionary approach to teaching that she shares with all her tutors. Her passion is to motivate every student to excel, break barriers, and become the best that he/she can be. You can be assured that a unique program will be designed for your child that builds the skills and instills the motivation that ensures his/her individual success.
Thirdly, the Center is introducing into the United States (from Korea) the mc2, a revolutionary electronic device that utilizes state-of-the-art technology to improve concentration, accelerate learning, and induce a state of deep relaxation that appears — paradoxically — to facilitate more effective focus and more rapid processing of information. We have repeatedly found that the mc2 is a powerful, effective adjunct to our tutoring.
