Beyond striving to ensure that students understand the content in the courses they are taking, our academic coaches:
Our overall tutoring philosophy is based on two principles:
Our academic coaches are tested for mastery in their specific subjects and continue with their professional development as instructors and coaches throughout the year. It is not enough to know all the content – our tutors must be able to relate and connect with students in order to help them gain mastery.
Success depends on more than academic achievement; the whole person matters. Our academic coaches are compassionate, active listeners who deeply care about the well-being of our students and our community.
Students are exhorted to embrace concepts such as academic integrity, effort, discipline, perseverance, and taking accountability for their own learning. These qualities are continuously modeled for our students.
