Services

Thrive Tutoring is a boutique service in Tennessee for one-on-one, in-home academic tutoring, academic intervention, and test preparation. We also offer advocacy/IEP support, homeschool teacher matching, and group classes.

PRIVATE ACADEMIC TUTORING


When you choose us, you are hiring a highly qualified teacher who embraces a personalized and data-driven approach to teaching and learning. We don’t rely on a single fixed curriculum for all students; instead, we employ a variety of evidence-based methods tailored to your child’s unique learning style and goals. Our tutors are dedicated, prepared, and outcome oriented.

Our academic tutoring services are tailored to each student. We understand that every learner has unique goals, learning styles, and personalities, which is why our sessions are designed specifically to meet their individual needs. Whether your child requires focused tutoring in a specific subject, academic intervention in a deficit area like reading or math, or comprehensive support across various subjects, we have the right tutor for you. Our tutors also prioritize the development of executive functioning skills like time management, organization, and backwards planning.

Our tutors typically meet students in their homes, but we are also open to meeting at a convenient public location, like a local library or coffee shop. We offer flexible scheduling every day of the week, and we do not have set business hours—you and your tutor work out the specific logistics together.

Communication with your child’s classroom teacher(s) to align goals, gain insights into their learning needs, etc.

Comprehensive support in developing executive functioning skills such as organization, time management, and backwards planning.

PRIVATE TEST PREP (ACT, SAT, ISEE, Praxis, GRE)


Our philosophy around test prep is simple: we must identify and close academic gaps, practice test-taking strategies, and build endurance through strong study and practice habits. Strong performance on standardized tests is 90 percent deeply knowing the subject matter and 10 percent utilizing the right test-taking strategies. Additionally, being able to truly engage with and focus on the test for the entire testing period—test endurance—is the foundation of student success.

Similar to our approach for academic tutoring, we personalize every element of private test preparation to meet the unique needs of each student. Every lesson is developed specifically for the student’s gaps and test goals with close attention to their learning style. We utilize resources developed by the makers of the tests (ACT, College Board, and ETS) rather than third-party created resources. When you work with us, you are hiring a test prep expert to develop and facilitate high-quality, personalized lessons to close academic gaps and meet testing goals. Of note, our team members scored in the top 95th percentile or higher on the test they teach.

Our tutors typically meet students in their homes, but we are also open to meeting at a convenient public location, like a local library or coffee shop. We offer flexible scheduling every day of the week, and we do not have set business hours—you and your tutor work out the specific logistics together.

ADVOCACY + IEP & 504 PLAN CONSULTING


Navigating the special education process can be very challenging. You might be a parent wondering IF your child needs services and how to get the ball rolling with the process or a parent who is concerned about the services your child is receiving (or not receiving but should be). We would love to partner with you.

Our advocates work with families in person and remotely to get to the bottom of their situation and walk through the process together. Some families reach out for a quick review of the situation in order to pin down key talking points for an upcoming IEP meeting. Other families work with us for months to unpack what has transpired, review many documents, prepare for future meetings and assessments, and in some cases, attend school-based meetings together. Whatever your situation might be, we would love to work with you to figure out the best path forward for your child.

Here are some common questions we help families work through:

How do I know if my child needs special education services?

How do I get an evaluation for special education services?

What does my child’s evaluation mean?

How should my child be supported at school and at home based on the evaluation information?

What accommodations/modifications would be best for my child?

Should I get an outside evaluation?

What should my child’s IEP goals be?

How and when should my child’s progress be monitored?

When is it time to decrease the services my child receives?

How do I effectively communicate with my child’s school leaders and teachers?
