Some of America’s biggest names got started in Woodside: Francis Ford Coppola, author Frank McCourt and actors James Caan and Edward Burns are all former residents of the Queens community. With a list like that and the presence of several formidable educational institutions in the borough, including St. John’s University, Queens College, York College and LaGuardia Community College, it’s no surprise that academic accomplishment is a neighborhood priority.
At Parliament Tutors, we offer an extensive array of services for students, whether they’re at P.S. 11, Saint Sebastian’s Elementary School, enrolled at Greater New York Academy, pursuing an undergraduate degree or matriculating in an elite professional program. With the assistance of our tutors, success becomes a reality. We’re well aware that the key component in the process is you, the student – and we want to help you achieve excellence.
Statistics only tell part of any story, but they do provide insight into what’s going on. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 80 percent of adults in Queens County have completed high school, offering further proof of the community’s emphasis on education. The numbers do impress, there’s no question, but Woodside’s students will still struggle with particular concepts. Many, in an effort to grasp material, will spend hours attempting to teach themselves. Some do succeed, but most just lose confidence, forget about an associated test altogether, or skip what they don’t understand.
By working with one of our tutors, those trying to learn gain access to someone skilled at finding solutions to the problems that can prove so frustrating and difficult.
