Creative Tutoring Programs & Study Skills

We offer individual instruction in math, science, English language arts (including all aspects of reading and writing), history, and the social sciences for all grades through college.

No Two Students Are the Same

Classroom education doesn't serve all students. Many find the pace of instruction too fast and fall behind their teachers' expectations. Soon this becomes a snowball effect, and students lose ground and confidence.

Also, many advanced students may find themselves restrained by the level of their classmates. They may be bored by the pace of instruction, lose motivation, and gradually do poorly in school.

One-on-one tutoring is the answer for all these students.

Our certified teachers are intimately familiar with state curricula. With creative approaches to teaching key material, they're great at helping students come up to speed. For advanced students, our tutors dig into their specialized education to find innovative ways to teach advanced subjects that better prepare students for college, and ultimately the "real life" beyond. In all cases, with the compassionate support of our tutors, students achieve better focus, motivation and higher grades.

Reading Intervention Techniques

We use a well-tested program for students progressing slowly in reading skills-- including the most successful language-learning techniques, constant checkpoints, and materials for at-home use.

Strategies to help students with learning differences achieve mastery

At the heart of Big Mind Learning's methods are the 6 Strategies to Achieve Mastery. These techniques ensure that students do more than learn; they gain command of subjects. We also apply all of these methods to a comprehensive program of memory techniques and test-taking skills. Click here to view our new Study Skills guide.

The 6 Strategies are:

  • Repetition
  • Association and connection (with previously learned information)
  • Isolation and simplification of material
  • Story-telling
  • A multi-sensory approach
  • Application of the best modality for instruction (auditory, visual or kinesthetic)


Remote Learning Technologies

Big Mind Learning offers students the opportunity to learn at a distance. Our remote learning technologies connect students to expert tutors with freely downloadable desk-top sharing programs. Although we are located in the Northeastern U.S., we can reach students everywhere.
