Dear Parent -
In my experience, learning a foreign language often seemed like a case of the haves and have-nots: for some of my classmates it came as naturally as learning to walk. For me, it was a constant struggle.
When learning Spanish doesn't come easily, the problem is compounded by the fact that it can be just plain embarrassing to ask for help. It's one thing to raise your hand and ask for help in math class; it's an entirely different thing to attempt the same task in a foreign language. Doing so is often awkward and uncomfortable, and especially so for self-conscious teenagers. As a result, many students simply keep quiet and thereby fall further and further behind.
Working with a Spanish tutor offers two key benefits. First, your child's tutor can fill learning gaps and move at an appropriate pace for his or her current ability level. Second, private Spanish tutoring offers your child a safe environment in which to ask questions and practice diction. Once he or she is feeling more confident, your child will become more engaged in class. From there it's only a matter of time before he or she no longer needs the support of a tutor.
With as little as 90-minutes a week, a great Spanish tutor can help your child learn the structures, diction, and vocabulary that are the difference between success and failure with a foreign language. Private Spanish tutoring can also provide your child the encouragement and discipline that are so essential to being prepared and feeling confident for that big test or final exam.
If your child would benefit from the support of an expert Spanish tutor, I encourage you to scroll down to learn more about StudyPoint and our unique approach to academic tutoring.
CEO & Co-Founder
In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your Spanish tutor will work at your child's pace and will review material until it's clear that he or she has mastered the concept.
Our focus is your child's schoolwork, and a key responsibility of our tutors is to help your child prepare for and succeed on important tests and quizzes. This involves reviewing homework, discussing concepts, and practicing vocabulary.
Our goal is to help your child earn a stronger grade in Spanish class, but equally important, our Spanish tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent Spanish student.
Our experienced Spanish tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.
They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.
Being smart isn't enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.
To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:
Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private Spanish tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.
Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online Spanish tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough—there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.
Ultimately, the end goal of a StudyPoint tutoring program is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable—an A on quiz, an outstanding test, or a report card worthy of the refrigerator door. We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress is the Spanish grade on his or her report card, and that is how we measure our success with clients.
Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that accompany a strong report card.
Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our Spanish tutoring.
"We were extremely pleased - with the communication, the flexibility, and really working with us to get results in a tight time period."
"I just wanted to share the happy news with you. [Our daughter] got a 30 on her ACT. We could all not be any happier. I knew from the minute she started working with you she was going to improve. Whatever you did was magic and just what she needed."
"I can't say enough about the impressive results our son achieved in raising his ACT scores as a result of working with StudyPoint. The Program Manager and our tutor were both highly professional and genuinely interested in our son's success throughout the process."
"Our tutor was wonderful. He was very flexible in scheduling, he was calm and encouraging to our son. And, he really had great advice on the whole process. He is a credit to your organization."
