Extra Support Where Your Child Needs It
Added to our after-school programs for the 2018–2019 school year, optional tutoring is available for students in grades K to 8.
Private and semi-private sessions are appropriate for learners who need extra support in a core academic area as well as for advanced learners who would benefit from further enrichment in a particular subject.
Tutoring programs at TNCS are designed to empower students and propel them to optimal academic performance.

How do I know if my child would benefit from tutoring?
Tutoring is like supplemental teaching. For some students, targeted support during classroom hours helps them more readily master academic subjects. For other students, enrichment tutoring can help them attain advanced goals or more deeply explore a subject or skill outside of the classroom.
I don't see tutoring in world languages listed. Is this also available?
At TNCS, we believe that context is everything when learning a second or third language. Children develop fluency and other language skills by leaps and bounds in informal, conversational settings, so we offer extracurricular activities in both Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. Visit our ECAs page to register your child for the 2018–2019 school year.
Can I directly hire TNCS faculty or staff to tutor my child?
TNCS policy requires that you book your tutoring through us, and we believe that centralizing services will benefit both teachers and students, while supporting the TNCS model. Our contracts are annual, and teachers understand all policies before committing to employment.
How much does tutoring cost?
How much you’ll pay for tutoring depends on the type of tutoring session (private vs. small group), the subject area, and the staff or faculty member who is leading the tutoring session. As a general guideline, a junior teacher will cost about $40/hour, and a senior teacher will cost about $70/hour. An additional small fee covers TNCS’s efforts in curriculum development as well as the recruitment, training, and ongoing visa support for teachers.
