Holistic Tutoring Academy
Small Group Teaching
We are committed to promoting not only a basic understanding of each subject, but a real interest in the entire learning process and the deep curiosity that characterizes life-long learners.
Teaching the process of learning
Rather than just drilling in the facts of each subject, we take an intentionally holistic approach and include historical and social context to provide a more meaningful framework for the information the student needs to learn. This context provides greater engagement and longer term memory as well as a deeper understanding of the subject. It is important for students to understand the relevance of the information they are being asked to learn. We also strive to teach in as many modes as possible, understanding that different students process information in different ways. In addition to verbal and written presentation, we offer hands-on activities to reinforce our science lessons and encourage questions and discussion. Our goal is to teach our students how to think for themselves and critically evaluate the information they receive every day to make better decisions as adults.
