Alliance Tutoring seeks to help children, teenagers and young adults who are strained by the harsh realities of education. As we move through the pandemic, Alliance Tutors will help students navigate the difficult challenges and bridge the gap from their previous educational experience to the future to come.
Alliance caters specifically to the unique needs of each particular student, offering dynamic educators, mentors and academic coaches in one. Alliance tutors are experienced educators who have advanced degrees from highly competitive institutions and extensive experience in education, able to address even the most challenging cases by drawing on their backgrounds in working across the spectrum. They are warm and personable, forming close attachments with clients, developing the necessary rapport for personal and educational success.
As a result of the pandemic and its after-effects, students have increasingly have taken medical or personal leaves, have dropped out of school, have mightily struggled with their grades, or have encountered great adversity in ascending to the next level of their education. Our signature service is finding these what we term ‘lost souls’ and helping them find their way on their life path.
In J.D. Salinger’s canonical work, The Catcher in the Rye, protagonist Holden Caulfield comes to regard himself as rescuer of lost children, explained in the metaphor of catching children in a field of rye before they fall over a cliff. This metaphor best illustrates our mission, to catch those ‘comin’ through the rye,’ and set them back on their feet. If guided well, we can rescue teens and young adults from slipping off the precipitous cliffs that necessarily circumscribe youth, saving lives from those vast abysses they so frequently approach; that is indeed the metric of success for Alliance Tutoring, and as the numbers demonstrate, our record is unparalleled.
Our main objective is sometimes not to teach them about solving logarithmic equations or Hemingway’s use of the zero ending or the context of the war of 1812 (although we want them to learn those things, too!), but to teach them the power of their own inner resources, to ignite a fire in them that forgets the kindling. In most cases, it requires a few large doses of sincere, positive affirmation to steer away from the theoretical voids that surround them. The results are often magical, permanent, and poetic, unveiling the hidden truth: ‘these moments of crisis are actually prime opportunities for transformation.
