There are a lot of tutoring services. What makes Classroom Matters different?
The Classroom Matters Philosophy
Our philosophy is a big part of what makes our program so successful. We work with the whole student, addressing content area, executive functioning, learning differences, motivation, and more. Because there is a strong mentoring component to what we do, we take great care in matching students with the “right” tutor. We work to empower students to enjoy learning (again), to foster ownership and self-advocacy and to integrate proven study habits into their routine.
