Tutoring for All Subjects, Basic Skills, and Test Prep

For 3rd- to 12th-grade students who are having difficulties in a course or who lack important academic skills, one-to-one tutoring at Brightmont provides the focus and tailored approach that enables them to improve. One experienced teacher works with only one student for the entire learning session.

The Brightmont team designs and delivers effective and personalized tutoring plans, that help each student understand the subject content they don’t “get” and successfully complete outstanding assignments and homework. Throughout tutoring sessions, teachers also identify and improve the student’s basic skills and study skills to optimize progress.
