One-on-One Private Tutoring Services
1:1 Tutoring At Your Convenience. In Your Home. On Your Schedule.
It’s not your imagination. Your student really does not know how to study. When students know how to study, they get better grades. It’s that simple.
S4’ private in-home tutoring services, teaches evidence-based study skills and executive functioning strategies using your student’s actual school materials and subject matter in a one-on-one environment.
Our tutoring program is designed to meet each student at their individual level, and is customized to their unique learning style.
Your student will learn skills, tools, and strategies, how to study in the classroom, and at home, as well as how to use and apply these skills across all of their academic subjects. Your student will experience the real-life application and benefits of knowing how to study more effectively and efficiently as it specifically relates to them.
Mark has really turned things around this year, no doubt thanks to the S4 system! Mark is making all As now in every subject. What an amazing transformation! I knew he was smarter than the grades he was getting; he simply needed better study-skills. — Melinda Lorenz, Greenwich, Connecticut
In addition, your student will benefit by increased subject matter review, comprehension and retention – critical when prepping for tests and finals.
Our tutoring also focuses on teaching executive functioning strategies: planning, organization, task initiation, sustained attention, goal-setting, decision-making, and problem solving – all important components of academic success.
We can also work with your student on their specific assignments, including test and exam prep, and writing.

What Parents Say About Our Private Tutoring Services
We began working with Kam at S4 Study Skills last summer. It was the best decision we have ever made. Kam has served as a teacher, mentor, sounding board and monitor for our son. He has taken the time to understand our son and help manage and organize workflow, review current assignments, prepare for upcoming exams, and work on any academic issues he is having. We often fought to review our son’s work, but Kam provides that check we wanted.
Now, our son knows how to take notes now, set up schedules to complete work for exams, papers and other assignments and what to do in small steps to achieve it all. The academic improvement has been significant, fights at home about schoolwork have declined, and our son’s confidence has soared.
We can’t say enough great things about S4 Study Skills and Kam. We know the foundation established this year will take him through the rest of high school and through college. We also know the personal bond established between Kam and my son will last a lifetime. — Beth Goodman, Stanford, Connecticut
Every subject increased by a quarter grade through a full grade. I only wish we started earlier. —Tracy Simms, mother of a Darien, Connecticut, High School freshman
We have been very pleased with the S4 tutoring has done with our 7th grade son. Over the last year, our son has learned the essential skills he needed for studying and learned how to develop a consistent study routine. We have seen significant improvement in our son’s study habits due to S4’s tutoring. — Jeannie Cunnion, Greenwich, Connecticut
