  • OUR MISSION

    At Academic Ascent we believe that every student can achieve. Our number one goal is to help students get past "I can't" and ascend to "I can." We strive to empower learners to be their best and clearly see a path to future success. Whether it's individual tutoring, group workshops, or academic coaching, we provide students with strategies that build skills, perseverance, and grit. With over 20 years of experience working closely alongside students from elementary to college, you can trust that Academic Ascent will help your child find their voice and the confidence to reach their highest levels of learning.

  • VIRTUAL TUTORING & COACHING

    The advantages of virtual tutoring resources in today's learning environment

    One-on-one & small group vs. classroom sessions

    Large classroom settings online and in-person can be a cumbersome experience and can be unproductive for many learners. Our virtual tutoring is almost exclusively one-on-one, or small groups of six or less with an instructor. We combat screen-fatigue by directly and meaningfully engaging with each student during every session, something that is very difficult to do in large-group settings.

    Higher frequency means better results

    Meeting virtually allows our tutors & coaches to see more students more frequently. Why is this a good thing? Aside from expanding our ability to efficiently reach more people, many of our students now benefit from receiving support multiple times per week rather than just one session. This provides opportunities for more frequent interaction with each student and quicker action from our tutors & coaches to respond to challenges instead of waiting days or weeks for the next session.

    Convenience factor

    Virtual tutoring & coaching is done in the comfort of your home, or on the go, or even while you're away on vacation (learning is all about keeping momentum!) Virtual tutors are able meet you at your scheduled time wherever you or your child might be. No traffic jams, no weather delays, just safe and timely sessions at your appointed time.

    Last-minute sessions

    Online learning with Academic Ascent means that we understand things pop up, and our students might need a quick 30-minute session before a test or to help with homework. We always aim to accommodate our clients whenever they need us, and often can find someone who is available to help on-the-spot!
