ALC believes that there is nothing more crucial to your student's success than a thorough understanding of his/her individual learning style. Our tutors help students develop the ability, capacity, and desire to work and study constructively through an ongoing partnership with a focus on the big picture and real world successes. ALC tutors present successful strategies and skills through activities and modeling in a lively and enthusiastic manner.

Homework does not need to be a daily battle - with proper study skills in place your child will soon be acing their quizzes, raising their hand to answer questions in class, and helping out their struggling classmates. ALC tutors will guide and direct your student as they gain confidence and pride in their ability as both learner and leader! By minimizing frustration and maximizing efficiency, your student will spend less time studying and will have more time to just be a kid!
