Throughout Portland and the surrounding area, Parliament Tutors offers an array of services for students looking to gain an academic edge. With specialized tutors in languages, standardized tests and other subject specific areas, Parliament Tutors can benefit students from primary to graduate school.
Not only will we provide you with a qualified individual to enrich your learning experience, but also at Parliament Tutors we select the tutor that best works with your specific learning style. We realize that everyone has a unique approach to education, and our tutors capitalize on these strategies.
As of 2010, class sizes in Portland public schools were the fourth largest in the country. With less individualized attention in the classroom, Parliament Tutors would like to compensate for this. “When I was in school I had older siblings to help me with homework and concepts I didn’t understand. It is so rewarding to be able to serve this purpose for the younger generation of Portland,” says Ellie Miller.
Students are being taught to take tests instead of learning the subject material. “A higher level of stress is evident in today's school system that we did not have in previous decades. There is an extreme level of build-up to ‘testing days’ and students feel the anxiety level well before entering certain grade levels,” explains Brenda T.
This is where Parliament Tutors can step in and reestablish a positive relationship between the student and education. Our tutors focus on providing a comprehensive understanding of the subject, not simply test taking strategies that are so prevalent in classrooms today.
Education is an ongoing process, therefore whether you are succeeding in all of your subjects or could use assistance in one, Parliament Tutors can provide a service for you. The individualized attention and expertise that our tutors offer have produced outstanding results in the students who utilize our services. Not to mention the confidence that is brought about in these students by knowledge gleaned during their sessions.
If you are looking for an academic edge in a specific subject, or on a standardized test such as the SAT or MCAT, Parliament Tutors can assist you in this process. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions. We look forward to working with you.
