“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”
KNOWLEDGE AND PERFORMANCE (KAP) TUTORING
How is Our Tutoring approach different?
KAP Tutoring was founded on the Learning Principle that states “Knowledge and Performance are not 1:1 indicators of each other”. Our mission is to help students achieve greater success through the implementation of performance skills in addition to traditional classroom curriculum.
Many tutors solely focus on explaining the subject matter of a class. However, performing well in a subject is not just about knowing the material. That accounts for only a portion of any grade. The other part is determined by performance skills, including general logic and reasoning skills, organization and motivation techniques, time management, study skills, and test taking skills. At KAP, we aim to improve the knowledge and performance skills of our students so that they are as prepared as possible for anything that a test, or everyday life, throws at them.
A private tutoring environment allows the student to have the individualized time and attention that one cannot receive in a larger classroom setting.
Group Tutoring can provide many benefits that private tutoring can, at a lower cost per student. It can also provide opportunities for peer collaboration that cannot be recreated in a private tutoring environment.
