At The Schoolhouse, we believe in a holistic approach for the whole student. This means catering our approach, our coaching, and our academic materials to each student’s’ different personality and learning style. 

Unlike chain tutoring services, which offer a one-size-fits-all curriculum, The Schoolhouse coaches approach each student as an individual.   We begin by meeting parents and students to identify which coach might be the best fit as a learning partner.  Then, we schedule weekly one-on-one meetings that allow the coaches to get to know the student, his or her learning style, and offer curricular advice that matches the needs of each child.  It is important to us that our work is meaningful for the student. There are no packages to purchase, no obligations for several weeks.  Just a partner to work with you and your child to ensure that fulfilling academic goals are met.  

In addition, the staff of The Schoolhouse consists of certified professional educators.  We all have teaching experience in one or more subjects and plenty of practical advice to enrich student learning.  The staff prides itself on its flexibility.  We work as a team to provide the best outcome for each child.  The coaches often meet to discuss students and get advice from one another on the best way to approach the needs of students.  By using each other as a resource, each student receives the benefit of all the coaches at The Schoolhouse.  Someone famously said, “it takes a village,” and rightly so.  The advanced curriculum in many of the local districts and independent schools make it hard for parents to provide the academic guidance their children need.  Furthermore, the competition for college admission requires parents and students to have access to people knowledgeable about the system.  At The Schoolhouse, we can be part of your “village” and give you guidance from kindergarten to college.

We offer academic coaching for children who want to understand a subject more thoroughly and position themselves well for school entrance to both private schools and colleges, including exam preparation and individual application assistance.  In addition, we offer assistance to students that need a subject more thoroughly discussed, implement organization and study strategies, prepare students for tests and quizzes, and provide overall encouragement.  Our passion for learning rubs off on our students.
