About Third Space Mentors
Our proprietary curriculum and focus on mentorship make us the top choice in tutoring services for your child. We've developed this program after more than ten years of experience and with input from a learning specialist, allowing us to integrate key academic and executive function training methods into a personalized tutoring or prep program tailored to meet your child's needs specifically.
This process always begins with an in-home consultation. This allows us to evaluate your student academically, identify any special needs or learning disabilities (including AD/HD and Asperger's Syndrome), and learn about their personality and interests. From there, we match a mentor with your child based on availability and likelihood of forming a lasting bond.
We view academics as a context for mentorship. We believe that mentors and personalized attention will not only elevate your child academically, but also more broadly in life skills. That's why our staff will always come to you, whether it's for in-home sessions or sessions at the student's favorite coffee shop, and will always include parents in extensive post-session reports in order to build a supportive team.
Our mentors will not shy away from accommodating special needs and learning disabilities, as well. Whether your child has AD/HD and has trouble focusing on their work, or is working hard to stay at the top of their class, our mentors will have the skills to guide and aid them through any of our service programs.
Third Space Mentors is also one of few sources that offers Executive Function Training. We believe that the skills developed in this kind of brain training are beneficial to academic tutoring, and so mentors use this method synergistically with more familiar tutoring methods.
The results are undeniable. We have a long list of satisfied families and testimonials. Students come away from our program with better test scores, higher admissions rates, improved grades, and the tools to be confident and successful throughout the rest of their lives.
Mentors who care
We only hire staff that's both highly motivated and well trained. Many have completed a master's degree or higher, and most are already teachers. All of them have a valuable focus in education or psychology, as well as a caring attitude and a desire to help students become the best they can be. Our extensive training program ensures mentors have practical experience utilizing our methods.
In order to hire and retain the best staff, we offer an income that is 50% more than the market rate. We want to engender a strong mentoring relationship that can help your student throughout their academic career, including times of academic transition, such as graduating from middle school to high school. These can be difficult times for students, and having a consistent source of mentorship can make all the difference.
A long term mentoring relationship will also further individualize your child's tutoring. Mentors will be able to better anticipate academic needs, and not only be able to develop a personalized plan from the start, but also adjust that plan specifically for the student.
Our uniquely effective program will not only boost your student's grades, testing results, and admissions, but will give them the tools and confidence to not only succeed, but to truly shine. Contact us today to set up an in-home consultation and find the right mentor for your child.
We offer a full range of programs to cover preparing your student to take exams for private middle schools and high schools (the ISEE or the SSAT) as well as those for college admissions (the ACT or the SAT). The average course is recommended to be 8 weeks long, but this time can be tailored to your student's needs.
Our tutoring services cover a broad range of subjects for comprehensive content specific education. This program is highly personalized, and with the right mentor, can last as many years as your child needs.
Executive Function Training
This service offers a process-based approach to education, because teaching a child the skills associated with HOW to learn are just as important as instructing them in academic content. This teaches students of any age or ability to effectively utilize concentration, time management, task completion, and error-checking strategies.
