Tutoring

Students who learn differently need to be taught differently.

BES tutors tailor their teaching to each child’s needs whether we are working on advanced writing techniques, summer packets, academic subjects, or ACT/SAT test prep. Along with helping each student master their subject matter, we are also here to help your child enhance their study skills and build confidence in their abilities.

Academic Tutoring

The tutoring staff at BES understand the difficulties that students who learn differently face every day. With an in-depth knowledge of different learning styles and how to address them, our tutors can individualize their methods to meet each student’s needs.
We are currently meeting with students via Zoom and are offering assistance in all subject areas.

ACT & SAT Standardized Test Prep

BES understands how difficult standardized tests can be for students who learn differently. All of our tutors have a background in education or a particular area of expertise. These academic credentials combined with an understanding of how students learn enables them to establish a positive connection with each student.

We also recognize the anxiety that many students feel at just the mention of sitting for a multiple hour test. Our tutors help by relieving that anxiety. They instill confidence in the students and help them understand that these tests are only part of the college admissions process and not THE primary factor in acceptance.

Because students have individual learning styles and will likely use their preparation time differently, we offer three types of programs:

General Overview (3 – 4 sessions): For students with previous competitive scores, past test preparation, or limited time, we offer section-by-section instruction. Throughout the sessions the tutor will:

  • Review the most common types of questions, the most obvious errors, and the best “tips and tricks” we have in our arsenal
  • We recommend three sessions for the SAT and four for the ACT

Subject Intensive (6 – 8 sessions): Subject Intensive programs are best for students who are significantly weaker in one section of the test than another. Throughout the sessions the tutor will:

  • Take the student through either the Verbal or the Math (and Science for the ACT) sections in detail, focusing on the specific items that will help a student improve his or her scores.

Comprehensive Study (10 – 12 sessions): Students new to the test or with significant challenges in test taking will benefit from a comprehensive set of sessions, normally ten to twelve total.

  • Most students can complete all the material for either the SAT or the ACT in this program
  • More time is spent in the greatest areas of opportunity for advancement; however, all material is touched on for helpful hints and subject matter review

Advanced Writing

Bass Educational Services is fortunate to have numerous tutors on staff with advanced degrees who specialize in the written word. We have assisted hundreds of students in crafting their college essays, finalizing major research papers, and perfecting their writing style. For many students who learn differently, taking what is in their head and putting it on paper is arduous. BES staff is able to break the writing process down in a manner that each student can understand.
