Engaging Minds, an after-school Boston learning center, offers a unique approach to traditional tutoring: we teach students how to learn and provide them with academic skills and strategies they need to succeed over the long-term.
In today's fast-paced world, learning content is important, but becoming a skilled problem-solver who is able to access, manipulate, and think critically about that content is even more important.
In addition to providing support in writing, reading comprehension, and problem-solving, we focus on teaching the increasingly important executive function skills (organization, prioritization, initiation of tasks, time management, goal-setting, planning) and guide students to become independent and self-confident learners. With these fundamental skills in place, students are better able to effectively approach, manage and complete nightly (and long-term) homework assignments, and are better poised to achieve their full potential.
An experienced tutor (classroom and learning center teachers with a Master's degree in Education) meets with each student one-on-one once or twice per week and develops a personalized learning plan based on the student's unique learning style and learning profile. After every session, the tutor keeps parents 100% up-to-date on their child’s progress via our secure, password-protected, online forum called EMChatTM.
