Serious learning…with a smile!

Specialty Tutoring is a nonprofit agency that has been helping children overcome learning difficulties since 1999. We strive to provide the very best specialized and affordable services available. Our learning specialists understand each child’s unique challenges, and they are trained to recognize and address the underlying reasons for these struggles. Using programs proven to be effective, we seek to turn a child’s frustration into a triumphant smile.
Our goal is to enhance a child’s ability and motivation to learn. We do this through one-on-one, interactive, and personalized tutoring. Our most important product is the child’s renewed belief in his or her ability to succeed.  We take our work very seriously and truly appreciate being a part of each child’s journey.

What Makes us Special?

Our tutoring is always one-on-one. Each child’s learning plan is individualized and determined by that child’s specific needs. Our programs are research-based and continue to be modified as new scientific data emerges. Our learning specialists are trained to address academic skills from all angles, incorporating activities that strengthen the underlying cognitive learning skills that are necessary for all learning to take place.

This stimulating method is interactive and consists of sequenced activities designed to promote a high level of retention. We involve parents in this process by providing targeted practice to be used at home, and by building a strong communication triangle between parent, child, and learning specialist. All of this translates into the number one thing that makes us special—a child’s increased confidence and renewed attitude towards learning.
