What Are Academic Skills

What are Academic Skills?

Academic Skills are those school skills that all students in every grade need to succeed. Huntington helps by offering tutoring in reading, writing, study skills, math, phonics, spelling, vocabulary, and related areas.

How does it work?

We tailor our tutoring to meet your child's academic needs so he or she can meet or exceed his or her academic goals. Here's how it works:

  • We gain your perspective on your child's needs through several discussions followed by an academic evaluation.

  • We use this information to develop a tutoring program tailored to meet those needs. We discuss this program during an initial conference with you.

  • Our caring, concerned tutors work with your child to build missing skills.
