We offer personalized, one-on-one strategy based teaching that is ongoing that complements what is being taught in school. We pinpoint the root of your child's challenges and start there. With our Strategy Continuum of Learning, we can identify the foundational strategies that will support the big skills being taught in school. We have an instructional coach on staff that provides our tutors with training, coaching and the best teaching methods to help your child succeed in reading, math, writing, science, social studies, and French.
I love seeing every student that comes down to our office grow not only in their studies but also in their confidence and self-esteem. I love hearing all the laughter during tutoring sessions because that means they are having LOTS of fun. I love hearing when our families share how much their child is now enjoying school because they understand what they are learning. The professional educators and staff at TASK to Success are united in our belief that ALL can THRIVE in the appropriate learning environment, have the power to learn, are curious and creative and can succeed and be strategic life-long learners.
My child has been working with Desiree at Task to Success for the past two years and we have seen great improvement in his academic achievement and confidence.
My daughter Brook has been tutoring with Task for 3+ years. Math was a major struggle for her and we wanted to give her every opportunity to do well in school and feel confident. What started as a tutor session grew into a family! We absolutely love Task and all they have to offer. My daughter took the STARS test the beginning of her Freshman year and she tested in 12 grade math! WOW😍 I owe it all to Desiree and her team. Thank you for being a wonderful tutor and friend. Your family is AMAZING.
Very personable and broke down subjects in a way that helped our daughter understand better.
