Tutoring services at Silver Oak Learning go well beyond simply helping with homework. The curriculum, the workload, the instructional style, even the environment are created to best benefit your son or daughter’s needs.

The setting for private home tutoring can often be too familiar and actually create obstacles to learning. And there is often negative peer pressure associated with “staying after class”. But participating in a recognized and proven academic program is often looked upon like sports: extra coaching and practice to improve performance.
