How It Works
We’ll make sure you understand how it works every step of the way!
First, start a conversation. Send us a message about the student’s needs and goals. If you’re interested in in-person tutoring, check our service areas to the right.
Then, based on the information you provide, we’ll give you a personalized plan and pricing.
We will send you the bios of 2-3 tutors to choose from.
The parent (or adult student) will read and sign a brief client services agreement.
We will get your family set up in our online system TutorPanel.com, which makes it easy to track schedules, lessons notes, balances, etc.
And finally, the fun begins! Our tutoring lessons are relevant, engaging, and motivating.
Traveling long distances to students’ homes takes away from valuable tutoring time. So currently, WorldWise Tutoring is only offering in-person tutoring within the following Chicago neighborhoods and regions of Texas.
Alternatively, we can tutor students from all over the world using free online tools with audio, video, and whiteboard. We have been holding 1-on-1 and small group online sessions since 2015 with high efficiency.

We know that every student – and how they learn – is different. As such, WorldWise Tutoring customizes the services to meet each student’s unique needs. After an initial consultation, we will offer 2-3 tutors who are a good fit, allowing your family to make the final choice. Our team and the chosen instructor will work together to craft the most effective approach and program possible to help the student 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 methodology changes along with him/her. That way, our instructors and students are always in sync. That’s how it works!
We are also committed to ensuring all of our students move 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 lasting building blocks, upon which they’ll develop their knowledge and a solid foundation for reaching their dreams. We know that foundation is the best approach toward how it works to be successful. This includes teaching underlying learning and life skills, such as time-management, self-monitoring, focus, advocacy, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving. These are the evergreen skills to navigate our rapidly changing world. WorldWise Tutoring’s ultimate goal is to help students find their own unique voice and see themselves as agents of change in their own lives, communities, and the world. Because our focus is on helping students become better learners and leaders, we are an “extension of support” for schools. We work collaboratively with school staff and systems to bring out the best in their students.
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:
Our instructors solve a related problem. 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 DoUsing 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 DoThe 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.
WorldWise Tutoring’s mission is to help students succeed in the classroom and beyond. Interwoven into our instruction are lessons to teach students how to be better learner, workers, leaders, and humans. The lessons in underlying learning and life skill include:
Thinking about one’s thinking involves assessing variables in personal knowledge, the task at hand, and strategies for completion. It includes the processes to plan, monitor, and assess one’s understanding and performance.
The skills to manage daily life involves working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control. These include the processes to focus, follow directions, and handle emotions.
Personal attributes needed for success in school/job involves the non-technical skills that relate to how one works. These include the processes to interact with peers, solve problems, and manage work.
The skills range from internal self-awareness to external community action. The goal is to help student become confident and independent lifelong learners so that they can grow into competent and conscious leaders.
