Tutoring is and educational service of private instruction offered to K-12 & university students as well as adults who need to better understand certain subjects, for school or work.
Specializing in support of neurodiversity, we provide 1-on-1 private tutoring in various subjects and for students with all types of learning challenges, styles and differences.
While tutoring is centered around specific subjects, mentoring is about helping the individual succeed through the development and improvement of executive function and self-regulation skills. This educational service helps the individual become better organized, more self-confident and manage their planning and time better in their environment.
Feeling welcome in a situation is more than just action by the host, but demonstrating an ambiance of inclusion and acceptance. We strive to provide concordant educational services and mentoring by ensuring our staff is as racially, culturally & gender diverse as the population we serve - which is everyone, everywhere.
Every student in our program becomes a part of our private online virtual community, where they have access to our educational services, learning resources, study help, and support chats with qualified mediators. Additionally, we hold enrichment courses in art, wellness, music and other engaging topics that are either free, or for a nominal participation fee to help cover costs.
Courses in various domains, including but not limited to:
Our tutors have experience working with a variety of learning differences and their specific needs including ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism spectrum, and learners living with neuropsychological disorders. Unlike other online educational services, like Varsity Tutors, each of our tutors and mentors are vetted for their education and experience with learning challenges and are matched individually and personally with the student.

Executive functions are a collection of cognitive abilities and self-regulatory processes that help us achieve goals through problem-solving. Some individuals may have difficulty following multiple tasks, planning several steps ahead to stay organized or self-monitoring to control impulses. These issues can be common with some learning differences associated with autism, ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, and neuropsychological disorders. We will work with both adults trying to find ways to better manage their personal and/or work environment, and students in primary, secondary and University settings,
Focusing attention to discern information and then remembering and manipulating working memory.
Determining the order of tasks to complete on-time, and creating strategic approaches.
Managing behavior, attention and emotions and regulate based on knowledge and acceptance of past actions or mistakes.
As human beings, we all want a sense of belonging. Studies have shown that belonging and social connection are stimulants of learning and thriving. Often, when we have difficulty understanding certain concepts or processes, we can feel displaced and unwilling to ask for help. Being a part of an open community that is accepting, with people of all skill sets, backgrounds and differences, helps us to not feel alone in our endeavors, and we can motivate each other to succeed.
All students become part of our private online virtual community where they can access live support when available, learning resources, and a variety of live and recorded enrichment programs. Our online moderators, like our tutors and mentors, are educated specialists trained in concordant treatment with exceptional values of cultural, ethnic, gender and ableness diversity and equity.
This platform is an invaluable resource for motivation and success.
Our live Enrichment Programs will begin in October with registration beginning in mid-August. These will be 8-week long sessions in Art Theory & Practice and Exploring Music along with a on-going Book Club. Contact us for more information.
