Thrive Tutoring Academics offers mobile academic coaches who will work with your child individually in your home. All of our academic coaches are New York State certified teachers, counselors or principals. Our coaches incorporate the Thrive Tutoring philosophy and Thrive's study skills into every private session with your child to create personal, individualized, dynamic instruction. Students benefit from one-to-one academic work in a myriad of ways: increased confidence, reduced stress, better understanding, and the hallmark of true learning - long term retention of academic material. Our experienced subject tutors will work with your children on current work, upcoming tests, writing assignments, reading comprehension, and time management. We also review test taking strategies for optimum performance.

College Advisement: Additionally, we work with a college advisor who coaches U.S. and international students and parents in insight, strategies, and guidance throughout the U.S. college planning and application process. We will help your student refine their school list, manage deadlines, prepare for interviews, and tackle applications. Services include reviewing a student's academic record, standardized testing, extracurricular plans, and assisting with college application essays. While many students are not accustomed to writing a personal story that illuminates aspects of themselves, we will listen to a student’s personal narrative and help them brainstorm ideas and organize their thoughts into cohesive and engaging essays.
