INSPIRED TUTORING

Tungsten prep helps students achieve their potential and find joy in learning.

Tungsten Prep reflects our values for success — rational, realistic, results-oriented, compassionate and, especially, family-centric. We believe students thrive when they find that just-right tutor who understands their individual learning style, inspires them to work harder, and, hopefully, makes them laugh. Our team is motivated by Thomas Edison’s conviction that success is the product of grit, self-belief, and a willingness to learn from failure. These are the values we strive to instill in our students.

Personalized tutoring

Every student is a snowflake.  We create personalized tutoring programs based on a student’s unique learning styles, motivations and interests.  We set benchmarks specific to their goals and push students to achieve those milestones.

Collaboration for Success

Communication with parents is one of our cornerstones. We believe students see progress and results when parents are involved members of the tutoring team together with students and tutors.

Versatility

Think of our tutors as Swiss-army knives. They are experts in multiple subjects, promote sound study skills and serve students with compassion and creativity. We constantly refine curriculum and methods to deliver great results.

Tutoring as a ladder, not a crutch

Our methods encourage students to set lofty goals, build self-advocacy skills, and refine work habits. We help students be accountable to the most important person: themselves – today in the classroom and tomorrow on the college campus.
