Every child learns differently, studies differently, and experiences unique academic needs and challenges. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for learning, which is why ActiveMinds offers a variety of customized in-home and online tutoring services to families in Newton, MA, and the surrounding towns.

 

We work with students from kindergarten through college and our tutoring services are available after school, in the evenings, and even on weekends. Your assigned tutor will develop a strong relationship with your family and liaise closely with your child’s teachers to ensure everyone is working toward the same goals. They will also attend evaluation, IEP, and progress meetings.

 

Through carefully considered personalized plans, our tutors will: 

  • Encourage your child

  • Teach them concepts using various methods until they understand

  • Guide them with study tips and strategies

  • Help them become an independent learner

In-Home Tutoring Services

In-home tutoring is ideal for younger students and those who thrive from in-person interactions and assistance, minimizing distractions in the comfort of your home. No commuting required!

Online Tutoring Services

For focused students who prefer meeting virtually due to COVID-19 safety concerns or a desire for more flexibility and convenience, we offer online tutoring. Enjoy a wider tutor selection!
