How Stress Effects Adolescents
In a 2010 survey by the American Psychological Association, 43 percent of adolescents said they felt stressed every single day. By ages 15 to 17, the number rose to 59 percent.

We use a three-step process to evaluate and then educate in a timely manner. First, our Tutoring Shack tutor will evaluate your child to see what their current education level is. This will allow us to prepare lessons that will target the areas in which he/she struggles with. Next, the tutor will motivate the student to work at a pace that works for them. We then use learning blocks that works specifically to your child’s learning level in a stress -free, esteem building environment. Not only do you receive progress reports from your tutor, but you will be able to track your child’s progress in classroom performance and graded assignments.
