You have four options for registration: 1 Subject (4 one-hour tutoring sessions in 1 subject) 2 Subjects (8 sessions) 3 Subjects (12 sessions) 4 Subjects (16 sessions) Deciding on the number of ACT Private Tutoring sessions is based upon many factors. We recommend to most of our families to sign up for 4 subjects/16 sessions (4 sessions in each subject) to maximize potential to achieve a student's goal. If your student has taken the Comprehensive Prep Course with us, or is very strong in a specific subject (high 30’s), then all subject areas may not need to be addressed.

  • Online: Private Math Tutoring: Gr. 9-12

    Private Math Tutoring provides 1-on-1 review and instruction tailored to an individual student's needs. All sessions are held using Zoom and a robust Virtual Whiteboard. Please note, a special Math Add Drop-In is also included. **One registration covers four 45-minute tutoring sessions in Math. After your registration is completed with Edina Community Ed, you will be contacted via email to set up your tutoring sessions. You may sign up multiple times if you are looking for additional math tutoring. Our Approach to Tutoring Sessions follow the 3-step approach: 1. Question & Answer Many sessions begin with the student’s questions. To assess the student’s understanding of the past week’s material, the tutor will often observe his/her problem solving skills. 2. Review of Current Homework Our goal in reviewing homework is to instill confidence with the current concepts. We reinforce the skills needed to complete the homework assignment independently. 3. Pre-teaching For many students, extra processing time to gain understanding of a concept is invaluable. Pre-teaching of an upcoming concept will improve comprehension and confidence. (Pre-teaching is omitted when preparing for a test or quiz.) Test Preparation Getting ready for an upcoming quiz or test is a high priority. To prepare our students, tutors utilize the center’s supplemental materials along with school assignments. We also strongly encourage our students to use Math Add Drop-In during this time. Math Add Drop-In, exclusive to Math Addvantage, is available for all students through Honors Precalculus enrolled in weekly Private Tutoring. Students are encouraged to drop-in between 8:00pm – 9:00pm Monday through Thursday to ask questions.
