HELPING STUDENTS FULFILL THEIR POTENTIAL
At Alice Hartman Tutoring, we combine traditional methods of education with innovative teaching techniques, crafted specifically for one-on-one enrichment, test prep and mentoring experiences. While helping students improve their grades and preparing children for entrance exams are vital components of our work, our approach to tutoring is uniquely comprehensive. Our goal is to appeal to the innate interest in achievement that exists within every child, and enhance a student’s strengths while addressing any needs related to academia, organization or confidence. We provide an experienced academic mentor who acts as a personal coach for homework help, test prep and all forms of educational guidance. Sponsored.
