has over 40 years of educational experience. SDLC tutors are selected for their ability to not only teach, but support and encourage your child.
We place your child with specific teachers to bring out the best of them. Our tutors are members of your own community and often teach at local schools. This makes our tutors aware of local school curriculum, which can give them a better insight on what lessons your child is currently learning.
SDLC tutors strive to keep your child motivated and focused through positive reinforcement.
