Tutors-Ink would like to announce a new branch of our comprehensive tutoring service: Therapeutic Tutoring.

After many years of tutoring we have concluded that very often students who need academic assistance are also in need of emotional support.

We recognize that students struggle with a variety of emotional issues. Tutors-Ink offers a unique therapeutic tutoring service which combines rigorous academic work with needed support to overcome emotional barriers that may be preventing successful academic achievement.

Research has revealed that poor academic performance - regardless of the cause - has a detrimental impact on students’ self-esteem and self-confidence. Thus begins a vicious cycle in which feelings of inferiority affect learning and academic performance and the resulting poor grades exacerbate feelings of low self-worth. This cycle frequently results in students lacking motivation, feeling stupid, and failing to learn. Therapeutic Tutoring is designed to stop this recurring cycle, remediate the needed academic skills, and heal the emotional wounds.

Our Therapeutic Tutors are trained psychologists, social workers, and psychology and social work students who are also experts in a variety of subject areas.

Tutoring sessions are designed to address academic and emotional needs. Our tutors are determined to help students overcome obstacles to reaching their potential in school. Some of the goals for our students are:

  • Increase motivation
  • Reduce anxiety and/or depression
  • Improve attention and concentration
  • Build organizational and time management skills
  • Decrease resistance to schoolwork
  • Increase self-esteem
  • Build self-confidence
  • Develop a joy for learning

We at Tutors-Ink create the best opportunities for your child to advance by ensuring that your child’s unique profile is well understood and is the determining factor in designing an individualized approach to best suit his or her needs.
