Parliament Tutors is proud to offer tutoring across Atlanta in both the metropolitan and suburban areas.
Parliament Tutors serves all of Atlanta from the public elementary, junior high and high schools to the city’s fine private schools from Westminter to Woodward academies as well as the city’s fine universities such as Emory.
The Atlanta Board of Education is responsible for Atlanta’s 58 elementary schools, 16 middle schools, 20 high schools and 7 charter schools. Atlanta also has many fine private school options, many of which are preparatory and others that are religious based such as Christ The King School and Yeshiva Atlanta. The most exclusive private schools in the city are Westminter, Lovett, Holy Innocents’, Paideia, Pace and Wesleyan. Additionally, The Woodard Academy, which is the largest private school in the US educates its 2,700 students from kindergarten through twelfth grade.
Collegiately, Atlanta’s pride and joy is Emory University, which is frequently regarded as a top twenty school by US News. The city is also home to George State University, Morris Brown College and the Atlanta University Center in addition to over 25 other smaller colleges including Oglethorne University, which Princeton Review ranks as having one of the fifteen best faculties in the country. On a whole, 77% of Atlanta residents earn a high school diploma, roughly 35% earn a bachelor’s, and roughly 14% earn a graduate or other professional degree.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, math and reading are the most difficult subjects for most Atlanta students. Atlanta public schools performed amongst the lowest in the state across the board on the elementary and junior high school levels on both math and reading. It is difficult to pinpoint one reason why students are struggling so profoundly in these two areas. However, one possible answer is motivation and study habits. While the public school system has struggled, many private schools such as KIPP West Atlanta Young Scholars Academy had close to 99% of students pass the math testing. School administrators stated that the student’s ten-hour school day, and hard work ethic were the most prominent factors behind their success.
Unlike a crowded classroom in which a tutor has to educate students across a wide range of spectrum simultaneously, a private tutor is there just to cater to one individual student, and that student’s success is their only objective. With the right tutor, everything is customized and designed to ensure that each student reaches their true potential.
Doing better in school is directly correlated with improved self-esteem, and improved leadership abilities. As you improve in school you can also expect to improve elsewhere in life.
