Middle School Tutoring
Middle school can be a trying time for students. The training wheels of elementary school are taken off, and brand new freedoms are introduced for the very first time. Social events enter the picture, extracurriculars become more prominent and education shifts into subject-specific coursework that lays the foundation for a student’s future in high school and beyond.
Often times students can face significant challenges from the increased academic rigor that middle school provides. Suddenly grades become much more important, both in individual and relative terms, and academic standing affects placement in higher level classes down the line. At the same time, kids still just want to be kids. Striking a balance and supporting students with a degree of stability in this time of great change is of the utmost important, and that’s where the Tutoring Rocks middle school tutoring program comes in.
We’ve proudly made it our mission to deliver a positive academic force outside of a child’s traditional institutional framework, giving students the chance to catch up, work ahead, and better understand and synthesize their learning in an environment more suited to their needs. Our middle school tutoring focuses on academic strategies that will work not just for this week’s quiz, but for years to come as students grow on their educational journey.
We’ve found that support in the area of organization can ensure these lasting fundamentals as students shift to middle school education. From simple skills like learning how to make proper task lists, setting achievable goals, keeping an agenda, or just learning how to keep a clean and organized binder, we provide tutoring for middle school students that lays the foundation for a successful educational and professional future. We also focus on study skills and understanding how to prepare for and take exams, with strategies that will aim to ease the pressure of high stakes testing. The ultimate goal for our middle school tutoring is to shape students into confident, self-determined scholars that can both set and conquer their academic goals.
