Skilled Tutoring Tutoring

Personalized learning on your schedule

We are a locally-owned private tutoring center that works with students across all subject areas to provide additional academic support. 

Cultivating is key. One-on-one tutoring sessions are designed for your child’s unique learning needs. Tackle Advocacy uses school records provided by parents as well as additional educational testing to determine the specific individual learning needs of each student. Goals are set for each tutoring session to help students who have fallen behind or need additional support to better succeed in school. Tutors use a variety of modalities to deliver key information to ensure your child has a strong understanding of the skills presented.

Individualized Tutoring

Success looks different for every child! We believe tutoring should be personalized and tailored to each child’s needs in an environment that is comfortable for your child.

Tackle Advocacy is offering tutoring for children in preschool through 12th grade in our learning center or virtually. We offer easy and flexible scheduling! Families are not locked into a specific number of sessions per week or month; however, there is a discount for purchasing tutoring packages.

Tutoring Approach

Personalized Curriculum – Your student is unique and they deserve a tutoring experience that meets their individual needs. Tackle Advocacy will create a comprehensive, personalized tutoring program built around his/her learning needs. In addition it will boost their confidence and prepare them for the upcoming school year.

The Teacher – Your child needs a tutor who has the expertise to match their needs and the passion to build your child’s confidence. Our tutor, Ellen Gilbert, has over 30 years’ experience teaching and tutoring across many grade levels. She recently retired with Guilford County Schools and while there she received her National Board Certification.

Goal Setting – Our teacher creates benchmarks for your child so they can reach their ultimate goal.

Our unique approach has been proven successful whether your child needs reinforcement or they are trying to get a step ahead.

Flexible Scheduling

Tutors will meet with students at the Tackle Advocacy office or online through Zoom. Our goal is to work around your child’s schedule and make this process as seamless as possible.
