Our Services

At Terrific Tutors we strive to meet the needs of our students by providing exceptional Tutoring services.

Unlike many tutoring services we don’t require our students to come to a “location with hours”, we work with their schedule. This means that services can be delivered in convenient locations and are scheduled according to the family’s schedule. Accommodations can be made to meet in-home, at day care facilities, libraries, and other public spaces.

Terrific Tutors differentiate themselves by the curriculum they use. Many services will teach proprietary materials that may not be beneficial to the student in their academic environment. We know every student is different. To accommodate their needs we utilize their school’s own curriculum to make sure they are learning skills that will help them achieve.

List of Subjects

Language arts skills, including reading and writing, are foundational skills for a student’s success in school. Our tutors work to ensure your child will be a successful learner of the important skills in language arts that are needed to achieve proficiency in all other academic areas.

We offer reading, writing, speaking and listening tutoring for students. We help students with reading skills including word attack skills using phonics and sight word mastery. We support written language with grammar, writing fundamentals for essays and spelling skills instruction. Most importantly, we emphasize reading comprehension skills and work with students to improve their understanding of the material they are reading. We also have instruction available in handwriting and vocabulary.

Our tutors will create and foster a love of reading and writing in our students which will help with their success in other academic areas.

Mathematics includes fundamental skills that students need to be successful in the academic setting. Often students are unable to perform at their grade level expectations because of a lack of understanding of the math concepts that are needed to be successful at their level. A great example of this is a child having problems with understanding how to multiply fractions. They may have missed the full understanding of multiplication and/or fractions, both skills needed to successfully multiply fractions.

Our tutors are experts at being able to analyze what mathematical skills our students are missing and helping to teach them those skills so they can apply those skills and be successful at their current level of expectation. We will also work with students helping them learn their math facts by teaching them fun games and mathematical strategies.

We offer tutoring for students struggling with science concepts. We offer all levels of science tutoring including general elementary and middle school sciences. We have specialized science tutors to work with your students in upper level sciences including biology, chemistry and physics. Our tutors will help your student have an understanding of those complex concepts by working with them individually using their schools materials for a seamless transition of acquired skills back into the classroom.
Study skills are a key to success for student achievement in the classroom. Terrific Tutors works with students helping them to develop successful academic study skills. We will work on time management, organization of materials and setting up a framework for quiz and test studying to obtain success in the classroom.
Many of the local private elementary schools require an entrance examination. Our tutors can help prepare your student to take these tests through test taking skills and review of materials covered on the examinations.
Many of the private high schools require an entrance examination for admissions into the school. At Terrific Tutors, we will assess your child’s strengths and weaknesses and provide them with the professional educators needed to help them prepare for the upcoming test. We will not only review academic materials but work with them on test taking strategies and how to overcome testing anxiety. Below is a partial listing of the tests we support.

Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT)

Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE)

High School Placement Test (HSPT)

Cooperative Admissions Examination Program (COOP)

Test of Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS)

Students preparing to enter college will have to take a college entrance examination. Our approach to helping students prepare for these test is very unique. We don’t put our students into a class environment where an instructor delivers instruction to all students, lacking the personalization to help your child maximize their own potential. Instead, we assign subject matter tutors to your student to help them prepare academically for each subject matter. We personalize their instruction so they spend more time with the tutors that subject matters are more difficult for them and review the subjects that are their strengths only briefly. We can also provide support in completing college applications and writing entrances essays. Below is a partial listing of the tests we support.

Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

American College Testing (ACT)
