WE INVEST IN OUR TUTORS

 

Unlike other companies, we dont just match clients with tutors — we invest in our tutors. Our tutors are not just skilled instructors, they are role models. We train them in the Powers Method and take on only college students who have exceptional academic records and a deep passion for the sciences. They are successful women, whom high school women can look up to, not just in the classroom.

 

YOUR CONFIDENCE — WE BUILD SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS   

Our approach is holistic: we not only focus on the results, but we help with test anxiety, managing school stress, and the social pressures of high school. Our tutors build strong personal relationships, as they take on only a few students, allowing them to form mentoring relationships with the students they are tutoring. We provide a true and inspiring experience.

YOUR RESULTS — WE FOCUS ON ACHIEVEMENT

Our tutors are monitored for results and there is no separation between Dr. Powers and the tutors. They give her tutoring updates on weekly basis, and together they developed customized lesson plans for tutoring sessions.

YOUR SUCCESS —BOTH SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM

We provide both short-term academic success, such as improved grades, and long-term personal success: instilling confidence, and teaching a way of thinking that translates into life. The Powers Method is about building relationships with people and seeing relationships between ideas.
