The Big Picture – We remain sensitive, yet professional
Sometimes there is more behind a child’s grades than performance in school. Jump Start tutors are sensitive to issues that sometimes lie beyond the pages of a textbook, such as: competition, internal conflict, peer pressure, conflicts in school, or simply growing up and finding oneself. Children often find relief in discussing their problems with an older role model who can provide positive reinforcement and emotional support. This big brother, big sister approach has allowed many students to become more confident in the learning process.
