Tough-Subject Tutoring

Homework Help

Study Skills Development

The demands of high school present significant challenges to students of all ability levels.  Expectations are high, the work load heavy and extra-curricular distractions many! High school tutoring is the answer. It’s not uncommon for students who scored well in elementary and middle school to find themselves needing homework help; unable to “wing it” for the first time. This creates stress at school and at home as both student and parents struggle to make sense of what is happening.

It’s against this back drop that many students realize for the first time that they have never really developed the study skills necessary to excel in high school and beyond.

For some the struggles begin in algebra or geometry. Other students need help in reading, English or a foreign language such as Spanish. Fortunately, at Learning Ascent our skilled tutors can develop your student’s study skills, provide homework help and build competency and confidence in virtually any subject.

Our high school tutoring services allow good students to take their high school academic performance to the next level, making them competitive at colleges and universities that would have been out of their reach academically without improved study skills and tough-subject tutoring.

Have a High Achiever?

We understand!  Many of our best students through the years have been top performers who were looking to excel even further so they could gain acceptance at top colleges and win scholarships.

At Learning Ascent we provide homework help, study skills and a safe environment where your student can ask questions and get answers without being judged or ridiculed by others.

Our professional high school tutors know and work with local school district curricula.  Familiarity with the curriculum allows tutors to identify and correct the root of problems.

Our local focus allows us to integrate our proven tutoring approach into your student’s existing curricula, creating mastery without creating an additional work load above and beyond their normal school work.

Let’s face it, your student is already stressed and pressed for time and tutoring should be part of the solution, not part of the problem!

High School Math Help

High school math presents significant challenges to students of all ability levels.  For some the challenge is grasping algebra, one of the fundamental building blocks of higher math, science and business.  For other students the challenges surround geometry, trigonometry or even calculus.

High school math is intended to push and challenge students and yet, regrettably, for many students the challenge is just too great to face alone. That’s where Learning Ascent’s math tutors come in. Our experienced high school math tutors can spend the additional time that’s necessary for many students to grasp and master the challenges of higher math.

At Learning Ascent we provide math homework help, fresh perspectives and a safe environment where your student can ask and get answers to the questions he or she has without being judged or ridiculed by others.

Our professional math and algebra tutors know and work with local school district curricula.  Familiarity with the curriculum allows tutors to identify and correct the root of problems.

We can even help your child to better comprehend and complete homework assignments.  Our local focus allows us to integrate our proven tutoring approach into your student’s existing curricula, creating math mastery without creating an additional work load above and beyond their normal school work.

Let’s face it, your student is already stressed and pressed for time and tutoring should be part of the solution, not part of the problem!
