Housecalls Tutoring consists of experienced, creative, highly qualified tutors teaching all subject areas and all ages, from pre-K to college. Our clients, and therefore Housecalls, can accept only the cream of the crop.
Each applicant tutor must possess a degree from a top university and graduate coursework in his or her area of specialty. In addition, candidates must have significant experience in both working with and educating children. Finally, Housecalls tutors must have that gift for communicating, specifically the ability to connect with a child, form a strong personal relationship, and produce perceivable academic results.
Our students generally live in Manhattan and attend the top schools in the city. Often, they are high achievers, trying to bring an A- up to an A. On the other hand, we also work with students with mild learning issues who are quite motivated but need that helping hand. We take pride in forming healthy, ongoing tutor-student relationships throughout the academic year, and we are always there to help both our tutors and our families.
Tutoring sessions typically center on the class syllabus, homework, and upcoming exams. We work closely with the teachers and schools, providing two-way feedback on the student's needs and his or her progress. Sessions usually last 60-90 minutes and occur in the home of the student. Most students require one or two sessions a week, and sometimes an additional session during an exam week. Tutors may take on additional students depending on the demands of their schedule and feedback from our families.
