Testimonials

  • I have used Port Tutoring for 2 school years. They will match your student with the right tutor and if you need to make a change, there is no problem. I have really appreciated the reliability of the tutors. Very high quality. Thank you.

    -Pam, parent
  • Two of your tutors provided invaluable aid to my daughter for finishing out her senior year in both AP Biology and Pre-calculus. In both cases my daughter was struggling and spending an inordinate amount of time on homework. After a very short period working with your tutors, my daughter’s time on homework reduced down to a reasonable amount and her grades increased to a level we were hoping for.

Academic Coaching

Port Tutoring is now offering “Academic Coaching.” This is a new form of tutoring that assists students with the overall learning approach as opposed to re – teaching. Traditional tutoring focuses on content mastery in a specific area of study, while academic coaching creates an infrastructure for learning. Through weekly one on one support our coaches will help students acquire the skills necessary for success in the classroom and beyond. The Academic Coach will focus on the following skills:

  • Study skills
  • Note taking
  • Writing school papers
  • Test taking techniques
  • Time management and organizational skills
  • Identification of individual learning style
  • Eliminate procrastination
  • Creating a study space
  • Accountability
  • Motivation
