Do what you love...TEACH!!!
You have a lot of great ideas to help students succeed. In a large classroom, it can be difficult to focus on the success of individuals. You know that when you have the opportunity to work with one student or a small group your teaching strategies and innovative ideas lead to outstanding results. We provide you with that opportunity.
A good rapport with the student is the key to his or her success in working with you. Academic Advancement helps by pairing you with the student who will best fit your needs and busy schedule. We also meet with the family and take all of the guesswork out of it for you.
