Tutoring services play a key role in the overall success of any school, college or university, not just the overall success of the students being tutored. The mission for any tutoring service is to ensure academic excellence for the whole of the student body by providing a place, assistance, group of people, and/or the right resources to encourage pupils to seek help when and where the need it. We’ve led multiple on-site and online engagements in all education segments: early childhood, grade R-12 and higher education.
Tutoring is not a replacement for what can be learned in the classroom or from a professor or educator. However, it is a strong resource for learning that works closely with and alongside what happens in the classroom and in-home study.
If you are struggling in any subject, tutoring is a way to get a little extra help outside of the classroom. In addition, the tutor will be able to guide you through assignments and homework that may feel overwhelming otherwise.
You can also get help and grow in areas outside your direct or indirect study like learning time management skills and getting clarification on your assignments. The techniques you acquire during your tutoring sessions will stay with you past schooling, into your career, and for years to come.
Tutoring sessions are flexible. They can take place either at your home or online via Zoom, Skype or Teams. We match students with tutors based on academic needs. Also, if students or tutors need to adjust the schedule, they can always do so by contacting us. Tutors will submit their lesson plans prior to the sessions, and submit student progress report every five sessions, so that parents know how their children benefit from tutoring.

Academic Coaching differs from tutoring in many ways, but the most important distinction is one of focus. An Academic Coach focuses on developing core organisation and study skills in the context of the student’s current workload. A tutor typically focuses on the short-term re-teaching of subject specific content.
We help ensure that students make full use of their potential by integrating the skills they may develop in school with expanded opportunities and activities. An unfortunate, yet common, scenario that can occur even with the most talented student is to find that after working many productive years in school, the student is nonetheless unprepared for a successful college experience. Goals often set many years earlier by the parents and students become less attainable when missed opportunities or misdirected activities consume precious time and resources.
At Editage Academy, we want students to avoid missed opportunities. By staying in constant contact with the student, we help students plug the “gaps” in their educational plans and performance preventing important educational ideas, skills, and events from slipping through the student’s fingers.
By identifying and addressing student’s underlying fears, patterns and limiting beliefs they’ll be able to stop making excuses and start acting to achieve what they really want.
With our Academic Coaching services student can:
- Improve their study skills
- Enhance their level of motivation
- Improve time management
- Improve their grades
- Get organised
- Set and reach goals
Skills That Make A Difference
An important component of our academic coaching partnership is helping your student understand how their ‘use of time’ and ‘levels of organisation or disorganisation’ (paper, space, and technological data) impact their studies. This is important because with stress and nervousness it is easy for all of us to spin our wheels and accomplish less. In the process, living spaces, backpacks, and minds become less ordered so that finding what we need, such as information studied for tests, when we need it is faulty.
It will also be important to examine and fortify some ‘study skills, such as:
- Reduce the stresses of school
- Reading for comprehension
- Developing a successful writing process
- Taking and reviewing notes
- Preparing for tests
- Overcoming Test Anxiety
