See the tabs on the left to learn more about what we can offer for your specific needs.
Personalizing Your Child’s Learning
Rather than hand students worksheet after worksheet, our math tutors personally walk them through their areas of difficulty. We customize our curriculum for each student, matching their current skill level and pace, and filling in the gaps in their knowledge. Our goal is to provide your child the skills and confidence needed to independently conquer the most challenging problems, whether that is simple addition or advanced calculus.
Enhancing Learning with Technology
Our math tutors frequently use online and tech-based resources to make their lessons more engaging and interactive. Students often have difficulty with abstract concepts. Our use of iPads allows them to “touch” their environment and quickly master the skills they need. We also provide relevant links to online material that will help strengthen your child’s skills while at home and, with our online tutoring option, students can rewatch clips of their tutoring sessions to reinforce the learning.
Aligning Learning with National Standards
Our tutors are experts in the national Common Core State Standards. This means that we know exactly what will be expected of your child at each grade level and can craft a plan for years of success. Few tutors have advanced degrees aligned to the teaching of these standards—ours do.
Current Math Tutoring Services Include…

Improving Your Child’s Most Critical Skills
Reading and writing are often the cause of much frustration in students, yet these are the most critical skills for communication. Our tutors are here to make sure your child is prepared to effectively read and write in tomorrow’s world. We are experts at identifying areas in need of development and will create personal learning plans to improve both your child’s enthusiasm and achievement.
Strengthening Skills through Individualized Feedback
The best medicine for an essay is individual feedback. We sit with students to go over line-by-line improvements and offer instant feedback on advanced and developing areas. We then offer clear and immediately usable strategies for improvement. Through close-reading, we show students how to tackle difficult texts by annotating, summarizing, and inferring.
Inspiring Lifelong Communicators
We provide strategies to help students conquer difficult readings about subjects that peak their interest. From there, students can readily transfer these skills and strategies to other areas. We teach students transferrable and long-term strategies, encouraging a lifetime of successful communication.
Current Reading and Writing Tutoring Services Include…
- Literary Criticism
- SAT/ACT Reading and Writing

Floundering in physics? Bored with biology? We can help. Our science tutors are state-certified teachers, hand-picked for their ability to explain how chemical reactions keep you alive and why sound travels 4.3 times faster in water than in air. Whether it’s designing an experiment, writing a lab report, or reviewing critical skills, our science tutors have you covered. We’ll help break down complex concepts and walk your child step-by-step toward independent achievement.
Improving Reasoning Skills
Our tutors focus on skills over content. We assess where a student’s knowledge begins to wane, and then teach the frameworks and processes required for advancing their scientific understanding. We prepare for the classroom while improving your child’s ability to problem solve and reason.
Encourage a deeper understanding of science through tutoring. We teach how scientific topics discussed in class relate to one another and help students see behind-the-scenes connections. Once your child understands these complex interrelations, they no longer rely on rote memorization and can analyze, research and experiment like a scientist—skills that readily transfer to other academic and career endeavors.
Current Science Tutoring Services Include…
• General Science
• Human Anatomy
• Environmental Sciences

Improved Language Learning
Whether your child needs help conjugating verbs, reading passages, or building fluency, our tutors have you covered. We offer the personalized one-on-one attention needed to greatly improve language skills. With evidence that language learning improves overall cognitive abilities, our tutoring is sure to have benefits far beyond the classroom.
Our Mandarin Chinese tutor Brendon has taught in China, Japan, Korea, and the United States. Our Spanish tutor Gloria has headed a school in Paraguay and created a robust Spanish curriculum for use with her state-side students. This experience of full-time teaching at home and abroad has prepared our tutors to identify where your student is struggling and work with him or her to begin immediately improving their reading, writing and speaking abilities.
All of our tutoring is conducted one-on-one so our tutors can focus their lessons on exactly where your student is struggling. We explain spelling, accent usage and irregular verbs in terms that your student can understand. After one session, students can see improvements in pronunciation, translation, and enthusiasm for language learning.

Homeschooling and Custom Courses
Many families discover that one-on-one instruction can benefit their child more than a traditional academic setting. Students in such an independent environment often walk away more focused, self-reliant, and well-rounded. Since day one, Madison Tutoring has worked with families to provide learning programs, courses and tutoring to create the next generation of independent learners.
Our homeschool instructors are certified teachers who have experience working with homeschooled students from a variety of backgrounds. We have experience working with learning disabilities such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and auditory processing disorder, as well as executive functioning issues. We tailor our teaching style and material to best reach your child.
Classes can be integrated into a homeschooling program or used to supplement school curricula. Our instructors will develop a deep understanding of your child’s needs and interests and create courses to fully engage and challenge your student. Through working one-on-one, your child will have targeted, experiential learning that is unmatched in a conventional classroom. Perhaps more importantly, he or she will have a mentor to inspire confidence and a love of learning.
In addition to a comprehensive plan of study, we offer…
- K-12 core subjects
- Electives (e.g. “The Math of Baseball”)
- Standardized test preparation
- Application and essay assistance for private school and college admissions
Whether you’re looking for a specific class, one-on-one tutor, or a long-term homeschooling partner, Madison Tutoring is here to help. Please contact us to learn more!
