Why is Aim-for-A Tutoring better than other tutoring services?

Aim-for-A Tutoring has the following advantages over other tutoring services:
  • Systematic Learning: Our basic service includes a systematic worksheet program that acts as the anchor for the tutoring program. Most other tutoring services provide help on an ad hoc basis without a systematic learning program.
  • Competitive Pricing: Since we keep our overhead expenses to the minimum, we are able to provide you a very competitive fee structure. Also, you only pay for what you use.
  • Experienced and Committed Tutors: All our tutors have educational background and experience to be excellent tutors. Above all, they have demonstrated committment and passion for tutoring.

What are the benefits of Aim-for-A Tutoring Online Service?

Here are some of the benefits of Aim-for-A Tutoring Online Service:
  • Convenience: Students can learn in the comfort and security of their homes.
  • Time Saving: Parents save time by not having to drive their children to tutoring places.
  • Money Saving: Private one-on-one tuition can cost as much as $30 to $100 an hour. AA Tutoring programs start at $39.95 per month!

What is your teaching/learning philosophy?

Aim-for-A Tutoring believes that the following three steps are key for academic success:
  • Acquire Knowledge/Concepts: The student learns new concepts or skills.
  • Improve through Practice: The student improves his/her skills through homework and practice assignments.
  • Measure Knolwdge/Skills: The student takes a test to get a feedback on his/her knowledge and skill.

In the rare instance that you are not completely happy with the assigned tutor, please let us know -- we will promptly assign your student a different tutor.
