Academics

Smart City Tutors provides comprehensive academic tutoring services, covering elementary, middle, and high school general education subjects. We are also certified in Orton-Gillingham for elementary reading support and offer tutoring in foreign languages and music. Our dedicated tutors bring extensive expertise to their respective subjects, ranging from language tutors with decades of international language study to general education tutors with extensive classroom and one-on-one teaching experience. Beyond their rich backgrounds, our tutors excel in assessing students’ areas of growth, creating tailored plans, and guiding students toward their goals through deliberate practice and constructive feedback.

Test Prep

Smart City Tutors takes a personalized approach to test preparation, recognizing that a one-size-fits-all method is ineffective. Our dedicated tutors collaborate closely with students and families to create individualized plans, focusing on teaching new content, test-taking strategies, and providing targeted feedback. With a decade of experience, Smart City Tutors has successfully guided hundreds of students to improve their scores, build confidence in testing, and develop valuable study skills for exams such as ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, Regents Exams, ACT, and SAT.

Executive Function​

In today’s world, executive functioning skills are crucial for success. Students need the ability to set and achieve goals, create study plans, maintain focus, remember instructions, and manage multiple tasks effectively. Our Executive Function tutors specialize in supporting students with these essential skills. Trained in the SMARTS program, our tutors provide extensive resources to help students develop executive functioning skills. With years of experience working with diverse learners, including those with special needs, our tutors possess a deep understanding of guiding students toward independence and empowering them to take control of their education.
