We aim to help our students gain the skills and confidence they need to succeed in school and beyond. Our tutors are energetic, encouraging teachers who make learning fun and attainable through interactive lessons, modeling, and meeting students exactly where they are while guiding them sequentially toward the material they need to learn.
We provide expert tutoring to students in the Madison and Guilford areas. Our tutors hold a trio of successful traits in order to best improve your student’s academic success: Master’s degrees in teaching, experience in the classroom as full-time certified teachers, and a high level of content knowledge. Visit our Services and Pricing page to learn about our subject-specific services, or contact us to see how we can help unlock your child’s full potential!
Our tutors are handpicked experts in their subject matter and in teaching. They maintain active Connecticut teaching certifications so that their tutoring practices closely align with your child’s classroom experience.
Luke Albertson is owner and head reading and writing tutor at Madison Tutoring. Luke has taught K-12 literacy at Somers Public Schools in Somers, CT. He previously worked as a proposal writer in Washington, DC and as a marketing and communications specialist for Central Connecticut State University. He has had numerous articles published, with topics ranging from ecocriticism (the study of how the environment is portrayed in literature) to “flipping” the classroom through assigning video-based lessons for homework.
Luke is a lover of the English language. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English/literacy and a Master of Arts in Teaching, and has tutored students from grades 1-12 in reading, writing, ESL, study skills, and test prep. He holds additional certifications in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), business English, and proposal writing. Luke enjoys tutoring because of the fulfillment that comes from laying a foundation and then watching as students independently apply their new skills.

Madison Tutoring, LLC was founded by English and math teachers, Luke Albertson and Rebecca Pisarski in the summer of 2014. After obtaining Master’s degrees in teaching and launching successful teaching careers, the pair decided to pursue a slightly different path—that of helping the individual student. A love for the shore drove them to Madison, CT where they now spend their time inspiring a love for learning in their students through engaging and interactive lessons.
