Tonka Tutoring will unlock your child’s full potential through one-on-one, personalized instruction. By identifying the individual needs of each student, our private tutors are able to provide tailored tutoring services that align with District curriculum. Whether your child is in elementary, middle or high school, Tonka Tutoring will create personalized learning strategies to help students master their academic work, improve their confidence and raise their level of achievement. At Tonka Tutoring, we believe one-on-one interaction with a tutor provides students with:
- Strategies to organize and break down school work into manageable pieces.
- Clarification of information misinterpreted or misunderstood in a large class setting.
- Accountability that promotes responsibility and diminishes procrastination.
- A supportive advocate and mentor to help build confidence and independence.
Most of our tutors are licensed teachers that bring years of classroom experience to the program. Our tutors also have extensive knowledge of Minnetonka Public Schools and align tutoring programs to District curriculum. Our tutors take pride in the personalized attention given to each student and provide encouragement, motivation and positive interaction.
Tutoring services take place at each Minnetonka school. We believe our schools provide a safe, familiar learning environment for children to focus on academic success.
