Since 1998, Housecalls Tutoring, Inc. has established itself as a special type of tutoring company. Housecalls was created by Dr. Hugh Gilgoff, a pediatrician from Mt. Sinai since 1996, tutor since 1986, and longtime advocate for the well-being of children.
We see each child as a unique individual, with strengths, weaknesses, and enormous untapped potential. We take great care to understand your child's personality, academic needs, and learning style in order to formulate an individualized plan for success.
Whether helping with subject material, organizational skills, or preparation for that big exam coming up, Housecalls Tutoring will make your child's educational pursuits more manageable and more enriching. We provide the most qualified mentors for every age and every subject, from pre-K to college. Learn more about our unique philosophy and individualized services.
Housecalls prides itself on having true specialists in executive dysfunction, receptive and expressive speech delay, ADHD, and anxiety, in addition to the basic organizational and motivational problems that often coexist. Dr. Gilgoff himself will take an in-depth learning assessment and character inventory of your child, in an effort to select the right individual to mentor your child. In addition to that tutor, you'll have the ongoing support of not only Dr. Gilgoff, but also the chief of that age-appropriate division.
Our Elementary Division places the individual needs of our younger students at the very center of our work, and each family can expect a program specifically tailored to meet its child's academic needs. Our tutors bring an expertise in specific grade levels, and a special ability to communicate with children. Find out more about our program for younger students.
We believe that taking a standardized test is like running a marathon: In order to succeed, students need motivation, stamina, and rigorous preparation. Rather than focus on solutions, we guide our students through a stimulating learning experience, customized to their needs and goals.
Through experience and research, we know what admissions committees are looking for. We will improve your child's chances for success by highlighting his or her special skills and academic abilities, and presenting them in a neatly packaged and well-balanced college application.
Housecalls tutors have all made their areas of expertise an integral part of their career paths. This ensures not only a superior working intelligence, but also a special passion for learning that will be contagious!
