Gr 6-8 All-Inclusive Mentorship Program
Any tutor can tell someone they spelled “victorious” wrong or misinterpreted a word problem, but at Berkeley we teach students how to learn better. Rather than focusing on speed and perfection, our philosophy guides students to take responsibility for their own learning goals, structure their own study time, and take advantage of a variety of resources. With our extremely long-term vision, we nurture children so they will be accountable and resourceful in high school and beyond.
