Why State-Certified Teachers/Tutors
You wouldn't want to be out on the water with just anyone at the helm. You'd want your captain to be licensed with years of seafaring experience under their belt! And yet, everyday, tutors are hired despite a lack of teaching experience and appropriate certification.
Why entrust your child's achievement to someone who does not possess BOTH the content AND pedagogical skills to help them succeed.
In addition to an intense interview process for all candidates, Shoreline Tutors believes that there is no one better equipped to help your child navigate the rough waters of the modern education world than a certified teacher.
Research has shown that subject competency is not the sole marker of effective teaching . Our tutors have a nuanced understanding of their content fields, AND of the best practices for conveying new knowledge to learners across multiple modalities. It is what they have been trained to do and what they execute on a regular basis in their full-time profession.
Shoreline Tutors's crew of humanities teachers specialize in literature, writing, and various subjects in the social sciences.
Our math and science tutors will not only prepare their students for the demands of the Common Core, but also the demands of a global society in which math and science skills are in high demand.
