Our Tutoring Philosophy
At Good Hope Tutoring Services, we believe that every child has the ability to learn. Our innovative approach to education accounts for many different learning styles. We empower students by using multiple intelligence principles in our instruction methods. This allows us to differentiate instruction for each student. Good Hope Tutoring also embraces interactive learning settings (cooperative learning) that encourage students to work together to achieve higher learning.
One of our goals at Good Hope Tutoring Services is to give children the life skills they need to thrive in today’s society. We do this by using real-world applications to teach children the fundamental concepts of reading and math. Additionally, we help students develop effective organizational skills and study habits.
The curriculum and materials that we use are easy for students to understand. This reduces the frustration and boredom that many children experience during the learning process. Our philosophy is that learning should be an exciting and rewarding endeavor for the student. When children enjoy learning, they are eager to work towards their full potential. And when a student realizes their full potential, they can better adapt to today's tough economic and social climate.
The Purpose of Tutoring
At Good Hope Tutoring Services, we believe that tutoring is not just for helping children with homework and projects. It is an ongoing process to help improve the student’s study skills, learning strategies, and test-taking abilities. Just because a student doesn't have homework, doesn't mean that they should not be tutored that day. All areas of a student’s academic life have room for improvement.
A quiet place with adequate lighting, table and chairs, and the absence of pets is highly recommended to get the most out of your child’s tutoring session. Cell phones, iPods, and other devices should not be in the area because they are a distraction. The student should have paper and plenty of pencils/pens for every session. The student should also have books that are relevant to the subject the child is being tutored for.
