development of character, healthy behavior, an optimistic attitude
then academics, we provide one-on-one and small group direct
teaching, homework assistance, tutoring, and character mentoring to our
students in grades 1-12. We emphasize the following fundamentals:
homework assistance & tutoring; Reading, Writing & standard English fluency;
Math skills proficiency; study skills & focus; and overall grade-level proficiency.
By combining a child’s natural enthusiasm and desire to learn with the
quality instruction and resources we provide at Strive, our kids develop
the confidence, attitude and mental scaffolding to propel them upward.
We help our children understand the importance of habituating the
intellectual values of hard work, rigorous study habits and
In a community where only 3 percent of the students at the local High
School are reading at or above the national average, our kids
will be prepared and expected to excel academically and personally.
