Online Tutoring

Since 2011, we've provided online tutoring for students all over the world! Our online tutoring delivers the same personal service and excellent results as our in-person tutoring.

"We could not have been more pleased with the tutoring at Nurturing Wisdom. From the pre-tutoring interview to learn what type of student/learner my daughter is to the tutoring itself, this program is top-notch. Although we were a little nervous to use a tutor online, that aspect was a non-issue. Overall, my daughter was so prepared for the ACT and her score showed that preparedness."

Interactive Sessions

A common concern we hear from parents is that online tutoring will be too much like the remote learning classes of the pandemic. Because the tutoring sessions are 1:1 and tailored to your child, it’s a completely different experience. We match your child with the tutor who has the right combination of qualities for their needs. No hiding, boredom, or getting lost during these lessons!

It’s really important to us that online sessions integrate the same elements that make in-person tutoring so effective:

  • a personable and positive tutor-student relationship that fosters a growth mindset
  • instruction that matches the student’s learning style, abilities, and pace
  • capability to see each other using strategies and techniques
  • flexibility in session to work on long-term goals, as well as respond to immediate needs

Without geography limitations, online tutoring even has some advantages over in-person appointments. For one, we’re able to consider all available tutors for a match. Additionally, tutors often have greater flexibility with scheduling online sessions.

How We Do It

Your tutor will use Zoom, a document camera, an online whiteboard system, and customized physical materials to connect with your child. As with in-person tutoring, online sessions focus on actively teaching new skills, extending understanding of previously introduced concepts, and reviewing already-mastered skills to stay sharp.

Here are a few examples of how tutors engage with students during online tutoring sessions:

  • Screen sharing while modeling a new active reading strategy
  • Using a document camera to walk through a challenging math problem together
  • Applying annotation tools to standardized test questions and answer choices
  • Working in a shared Google Doc to revise a writing assignment

    Nurturing Wisdom was a great experience. They were accommodating, helpful, and nice every step of the way. My tutor and I worked great together. She helped me improve my scores significantly, and I am happy we decided to go to Nurturing Wisdom for my tutoring.

    Here are the pros of online tutoring: Not having to go anywhere - just sit at the computer at home! He doesn't depend solely on me - I get a break! Watching the tutor get his agreement on actions, then writing out goals and faithfully addressing these at each session. His tutor is young, fun, and keeps him focused without the "mom factor." So far, Matthew has improved his grades from C's, D's, and F's to A's, B's and C's!

    After our experiences, I would recommend Nurturing Wisdom to anyone. We appreciate our tutor’s excellent work with Rahul. He has learned study skills and gained confidence in his abilities that will serve him well in college. And he's already been accepted to some colleges with generous merit and need-based financial offers!

    As parents, we want the best for our children. So when we make such a critical decision on who will best serve the tutoring needs for our child, we'd better be right the first time, and we were - it was Nurturing Wisdom. We knew from the minute we signed that we hit a home run. This feeling first came about when we spoke with Connor's tutor. He was an absolute professional who really knows how to convey his talent on strategic and quality test-taking. I was impressed with how he explained to Connor the importance of the test-taking strategies for each subject. He showed Connor how to tackle math equations in ways he was never taught.
