I have ran a tutoring business for the last six years and I have also been involved in tutoring for the last eight. One method I have felt was best when I first stated tutoring was using positive reinforcement. This method has allowed students to achieve academic excellence. People tend to perform better when they feel good and it works the same for students. When students have confidence in academics they go in to tests or take on homework assignments with a different mind set. This confidence creates better performance and motivates students about learning. Math may not be the easiest subject in school however try telling your children they can excel with a little hard work. Obviously with the rise of academic competition, tutoring is another great alternative. The importance of education is bigger than it has ever been. With that said, tutoring is no longer for students who are struggling. We have helped students who have always maintained good grades but now want to advance to the next level. Our program prides ourselves on the focus of positively reinforcing students in Math, Reading, Writing, and any other subject. This allows us to teach students not only how to learn but also what to learn. It is easy to get discouraged in academics. Positive reinforcement is what helps students conquer this battle and focus their attention on doing well.
