Thrive - to flourish, prosper, grow vigorously. A thriving student is healthy, successful and strong.
Thrive Tutoring is the brainchild of Jean Marie Stein. It grew organically as a result of the lessons she learned as a high school math teacher, tutor, and mom to two students. As Jean Marie actively sought to support her math students using experts in different fields, she recruited specialists in nearly all academic areas and in the fields of mindfulness and nutrition. In the classroom and in the community, Jean Marie saw that her students lacked basic study skills, organizational systems, time management capabilities, and coping skills to manage their stress. From the middle schoolers who are a bundle of emotional turmoil, to the overwhelmed 9th graders are overwhelmed transitioning to high school, to the upperclassmen navigating the enormous pressure to perform at their peak in the classroom and on standardized tests to get into the college's of their choice, the students across the years are in need of more help and support . Add sports and a social life and most students are simply overwhelmed! Our children desperately need tools to study less and more effectively, get a good nights sleep and make informed choices to eat healthfully to support their learning.
There are no formal courses in the curriculum to teach students these missing skills and even if teachers have the knowledge, most are strapped by a demanding curriculum, leaving little time to teach students how to thrive. Thrive Tutoring's academic coaches are skilled in helping your student reach their highest potential. Whether you choose to work with an academic coach or a study skills specialist, every student can benefit from one-to-one tutoring - even those who will NEVER need an academic tutor
Thrive Tutoring offers both online and in person coaching. We only refer academic coaches who reflect our philosophy of supporting the whole student. While most of our coaches are certified teachers, we also have other experts available to help your student.
