About Sunset Tutoring
Every parent wants their child to succeed - in school and in
life. A Sunset Tutor can help.
A personal approach from a Sunset Tutor
can help your child discover the love of learning.
With the inspiration of a great Tutor, your child can do better in
school, prepare for College Prep Testing, earn a degree in College, and go on to create their own successful
We offer Tutoring in Math, Science, English, SAT and ACT Testing, and
even ISEE Testing (to get into private schools).
There are 5 steps to a successful tutoring experience. Here is
what to expect from our In-Home Private Tutoring sessions:
1. Assessment SessionDuring the first session, your child's Sunset Tutor will
"get to know" your child both personally and academically through a series of questions. This will help your
Tutor identify academic strengths and weaknesses. It's also important for your Tutor to discover your child's
attitude toward learning - which might include self-limiting beliefs or test-anxiety.
Your Sunset Tutor will also have questions for you regarding your child's study
routine and insights into your child's talents. (All kids are different. Not every child learns in the same
2. Personalized Learning Plan
After your first session and before your second session, your Sunset Tutor will
develop a Personalized Learning Plan for your child based on information learned in the Assessment
3. Tutoring Begins
Teaching actually begins in the second session. This is when your
Sunset Tutor will begin working with your child using the Personalized Learning Plan they've developed
specifically for your child.

Will Your Child Achieve Positive Results?
Sometimes positive results come immediately.
But more often, positive results take time.
There is usually a combination of reasons why a child is not succeeding in
the classroom. Here are a few...
a) Classroom instruction doesn't take into
account that each child is unique. (Using a personal approach, a Tutor will find the unique approach to help
a child learn.)
b) Many children have lost confidence in
learning because they have not done well in the past. (A Tutor can help a student gradually increase their
success in the classroom. Repetition of success creates academic confidence.)
c) Even young students develop "Test Anxiety"
and are unable to demonstrate how well they know the material. (A great Tutor can help a student overcome
those feelings so they can do well on their tests.)
d) Many children have developed negative
feelings toward learning. (Through positive encouragement and honest enthusiasm, a great Tutor can help
a child develop a love for learning.)

As you can see, Private Tutoring is a process that not
only helps your child get better grades, but can improve their attitude toward learning.
By following our 5-Step plan outlined above, your
child can thrive in school!
