Tutoring Programs & Services

The Smart Scribe offers high-quality tutoring in all major subjects for students of all ages!

Are you looking for a safe and supportive environment to send your child for academic assistance? Whether you prefer on-site or virtual tutoring, The Smart Scribe's got you covered!


We work with students from Pre-K to College as well as Adult Education.

Each student receives a personalized targeted tutoring plan and we work at their pace to address their specific needs. We do not take a standardized approach to learning, rather we get to know each student with respect to their personality, learning style, and academic needs and provide a comprehensive approach to tutoring.  

We understand that these are challenging times and many parents and people are overwhelmed with homework and other academic tasks. Some may feel confused about the "new math" or different approaches to learning. Well, fear not! Our expert-tutors are vetted carefully and must pass a rigorous assessment to demonstrate subject-proficiency.  Smart Scribe Tutors are trained to meet scholars where they are. They identify areas of difficulty, then employ strategies that simplify concepts with tried-and-true strategies that boost memory, foundational knowledge, problem-solving skills, and overall academic success! Read below to learn more about our different programs.

Tutoring Subjects & Test-Preparation

Studies show that academic progress and the frequency of tutoring go hand-in-hand. We recommend at least two sessions per week of Intensive Tutoring in any subject area that the student is experiencing difficulty in. According to a Kaplan study, it is recommended that students start to prepare for the SAT (and other standardized tests) at least 3 months in advance, but if you've only got a month, don't panic!  We provide supplemental, follow-up resources that can be utilized at home to reinforce tutoring material.
