How It Works

1. Start a conversation. Send us a message about the student, including their goals, needs, and services required, and we’ll do our best to advise you.

2. If you’re interested in in-person tutoring, check out our service areas to the right.

3. We’ll hand-pick the tutor that best matches your needs.

4. They’ll reach out to you shortly with a game plan and a special introductory offer for your first session.

Our Method

Our tutors know that every student – and how they learn – is different. As such, WorldWise Tutoring offers no one-size-fits-all approach: what works for one person may not work for the next. After getting to know the student, our tutor will craft the most effective approach and program possible to help him/her reach his/her goals, keeping his/her individual needs and skills in mind every step of the way. Perhaps most importantly, our methods are adaptive: as the student learns and grows, our strategies change along with him/her. That way, our tutors and students are always in sync.

We are also committed to ensuring every student moves forward with a thorough understanding of the subjects they’re learning. Knowing the correct answer or writing the perfect essay will, of course, help them reach their immediate goals. But we’re more interested in setting students up with lifelong building blocks, upon which they’ll develop their knowledge and a solid foundation for reaching their dreams.

I Do, We Do, You Do

When teaching new content, our tutors follow the “I Do, We Do, You Do” method. Here’s how it works:

I Do

I Do

Our tutors solve the problem at hand. As they do so, they’ll explain the concept utilizing visual, auditory, and kinesthetic approaches to build upon students’ strengths and improve their weaknesses.

We Do

We Do

Using the same previously taught methods—and with the step-by-step guidance of the tutor—the student attempts to unravel a similar question until the proper solution is derived.

You Do

You Do

The student demonstrates mastery of the concept at hand by solving problems independently, establishing proficiency and confidence through increasingly difficult questions.
This process helps students gain knowledge about specific concepts, as well as establish the skills necessary to become lifelong learners. These include identifying the problem at hand, searching for important information, and finding the answer on their own.

Our Values

All tutors at WorldWise Tutoring have been hand-picked by our founder, Lindsey Wander, for their expertise and proven track record of helping students. Your student’s success is safe in their academic hands. We also ensure that each of our tutors possesses the following:

Experience

Our tutors have not only proven expertise in the subject area(s) that they tutor, but also have an excellent track record of helping others to master the skills they’re teaching.

Openness

Our tutors’ candor and approachability help students connect with them, feel accepted, and look forward to tutoring sessions. We’ll also establish open communication and a solid partnership with parents, teachers, and other service providers to ensure each student’s needs are met.

Preparedness

Our tutors will arrive on time, prepared and ready for the task at hand. They keep updated, well-organized schedules, so as to reduce additional stress in your busy lives.

Found WorldWise Tutoring to help our son with his organizational skills, but got so much more. Our son had an instant connection with his tutor, and he really enjoys his time with her. She is our secret weapon for the SAT and college applications…shhhh, don’t tell anyone!
