Tutoring FAQ

Is tutoring right for me?

Every student can benefit from working with a private tutor—there’s simply nothing better than getting prep that’s customized just for you! Tutoring is a particularly good option for students:

  • Who need one-on-one attention

  • Have aggressive score-improvement goals

  • Learn in a unique fashion

  • Are anxious about a test

  • Have particularly low or high starting scores

  • Are easily distracted

Is tutoring worth the investment?

It’s absolutely worth it! The cost of the tutoring corresponds with the quality of the instruction and the level of hands-on, concierge-style customer service you’ll receive. Tutoring is personalized based on your child's strengths, challenges and learning style. 

Every approach utilized is backed by tremendous research and outstanding support materials. Check out what some of our families have had to say about us!

How much improvement can I expect from working with a tutor?

It all depends on your child's starting score, goals, and the amount of effort put in. G.E.M. wants you to be satisfied—so we provide you with a highly-trained, motivated and successful tutor, and you provide the dedication and hard work by practicing, remaining consistent and sticking to realistic goals and expectations.

How does G.E.M. determine what my child needs?

Prior to booking a session, G.E.M. will meet with your child to assess their current academic status. Parents will be provided with an in depth report at the end of the assessment that breaks down their child's strengths and areas of growth. 

What subject areas do you offer tutoring in?

We offer services for Kindergarten through 8th grade in: reading, writing, math and enrichment. 

Do you offer online tutoring?

Yes, we do! In the midst of COVID-19, we had to pivot and we have found sessions to be just as effective as ever! This is often a great option for busy students or those who aren't able to physically meet with us.

Will G.E.M. work with my child's school or teachers?

Yes, with your permission, G.E.M. will reach out to the student’s teachers to increase communication and understand the requirements of the class. Often they also provide insight into the child’s learning challenges or areas where the student can get ahead of the class.

I still have questions. How can I get in touch with you?

You may contact us through our contact form or book an initial consultation. I look forward to speaking with YOU!
