Middle School Subjects Tutoring
We understand the unique needs of middle school students.
While they may not need the same supervision as elementary students, most are still not able to work entirely independently, especially as they navigate the transition to secondary school. For middle school subjects, we focus on teaching the skills needed to become strong, independent learners: time management, study skills, executive functions skills, and, perhaps most importantly, organization. These all-important executive function skills provide a foundation for any student, not only in middle school, but also in high school, college and beyond.
How do I keep everything organized?
Transitioning from a single classroom and teacher to a schedule of four or more subject teachers can be overwhelming for some students. Organization is the name of the game. We work one-on-one with middle school students to develop a system for organizing their class notes, binders, backpacks and agenda books. We assist in keeping track of old and current course materials so everything is available when it’s needed.
How do I keep up with assignments?
As writing assignments and tests become more complex and frequent, our writing tutors can help middle school students stay focused and on track.
We teach writing as a process rather than an end result. Students learn the steps necessary to produce consistently good papers – from brainstorming to proofreading.
For tests, we focus on study skills that will help alleviate test anxiety and eliminate last minute cramming. We teach students how and when to review course materials with techniques that are suited to their individual learning styles. These skills are taught within the context of the student’s own class curriculum.
