One of the tutoring services we offer is helping students to put themselves in a position to shine on the ACT and SAT.


We offer a highly individualized approach to helping each student to progress from where he or she is to where he or she wants to be. We use diagnostic testing to gauge where a student is, we help students set target scores, and—through quality instruction and ample independent practice—we help our students to hit those targets.

School can be rough for anyone, especially during a transitional phase. One of the tutoring services we offer is to help kids develop study habits that will not only carry them throughout middle school or high school, but onto college. 


Our tutors  help students learn the skills, habits and attitudes necessary to be successful in high school and beyond, including effective time management, organization, and taking an active study approach to mastering material along the way (rather than last-minute cramming).



While our goal is first and foremost to help each student to become independently successful in his or her academic efforts, when the need arises for a little extra help untangling a challenging subject, our team of tutors is here to help.


Whether it’s getting traction in Spanish III, untangling the mysteries of AP Chemistry or Calculus, or learning how to be an effective writer across the disciplines, The Whole Kid has tutors who specialize in supporting students efforts in every high school subject at every level.

  Your skills in preparing our daughter for the PSAT/SAT and college essays were outstanding!

    Working with Mr. Tibbitts has been one of my best academic experiences of all time. With his knowledge and guidance, I developed a great perspective on lots of new ways to look at novels and writing, and it was really an amazing year!

     Tim Tibbitts has the  unique ability to build a relationship with a student. The bond he creates helps students succeed.

   The most important thing that I took away from our sessions was a method for approaching the test, something that I didn’t have before.
