MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS

General Philosophy for Middle School Students

From simple multiplication to algorithmic equations, from Dr. Seuss to William Shakespeare, our tutors are equipped to assist in supporting instruction from any middle school curriculum. Tutors predominantly work with students on their current classroom assignments, helping them to prepare for upcoming tests and quizzes, consulting on class projects or papers, and assisting with concepts practiced in homework. This type of support allows the tutor to guide students at their own pace and doesn�t burden them with other work outside of their required assignments unless the need for additional focus on specific skills is determined. Should supplementary materials be necessary, tutors have access to Morphosi Academy�s curriculum library and are highly qualified to give assignments or supplemental homework (if desired by the parent) that will deepen the understanding of the concepts taught in the student�s academic classes.
