Tutoring

Tutoring Sessions

Students and parents both want academic success – high grades and the pride that comes with achievement. The tutors at the Academy of Music and Fine Arts believe any student, regardless of ability, can become a high achiever. Our tutors know from years of experience that students underperform because they have not learned the right approach or pathway to success.

Our tutors help students become stronger independent learners by developing a customized approach to organization, cognition and retention. Students can spend hours working very hard but working inefficiently to the point their effort fails to translate into results. Our tutors create personalized organizational plans so that students learn how to maximize time, work efficiently and retain key information not just for the short term but for the long term.

Success requires more than good organization; students must understand often complicated subject matter. Our tutoring approach helps students master concepts in all core areas by providing instruction tailored to their individual learning styles. Subjects covered include English, U.S. and World History, American and Comparative Government, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and mathematics through Calculus. Our tutors work with students in remedial work as well as AP track courses. 

Individual tutoring

Personalized individual sessions in a wide range of subjects. No long term commitments — book an individual session or a series.

For all ages and grade levels

Science

“We reach out to the tutors at AMFA whenever my daughters need a boost with their homework. It’s very convenient to have tutoring in the same building where they take their art classes, we book a session as needed before or after their class.
