For over 15 years, Rise and Shine Tutoring, LLC, has provided year-round, affordable, individualized, in-person or virtual tutoring to K-college level students with no long-term contracts. The parent/student determines the duration, frequency, andflexibility of the tutoring schedule. Our tutors will address the current school curriculum of the student to improve academic success. We specialize in individualized attention. Unlike a learning center, where tutors typically are assigned several students and work from a predetermined lesson plan, we pay careful attention to each student’s specific academic needs. Having a tutor who will come to the student or work online to focus on the school curriculum and provide one-on-one tutoring is a huge convenience and alternative from a traditional learning center atmosphere.

To connect with Rise and Shine Tutoring visit their website, Facebook and Instagram.
