Research has shown that being tutored is the most effective way to learn. But the key is finding a great tutor.

Here’s where W.O.R.D. Ink’s expert tutors come in. Along with being nurturing, empathetic and enthusiastic, our team has a number of teaching strategies that set us apart. We: 

  1. Foster a sense of control in students, making them feel in command of the material, and asking them to explain their reasoning.
  2. Challenge students at a level of difficulty that is within their reach.
  3. Instill confidence in students by maximizing success (expressing confidence in their ability to tackle challenges great and small) and by minimizing failure (providing helpful rationale for mistakes, emphasizing the part of the problem the student got right, or  allowing mistakes when they can provide valuable learning experiences.)
  4. Encourage curiosity by using Socratic methods (asking leading questions) and by linking the problem to other problems the student has seen that appear on the surface to be different.
  5. Contextualize by placing the problem in a real-world context or in a context from a movie, song, book, TV show, travel experience, etc.
