“Education is not the filling of a bucket but the lighting of a fire.”
~ William Butler Yeats
For twenty-first century students, information could be considered the new sugar: the check-out line candy bar, the siren song luring them toward a stimuli outside the classroom window, where the view now spans the width of the World Wide Web. Quick access to facts and figures no longer requires memorization and recall, but with encouragement, screen swipes and search engines can empower students to concentrate less on the surface-level problems and more on the big-picture solutions.
At Axios, we champion creative thinking. We embrace diverse instructional methodologies and innovation. We believe in helping students harness the tools of the twenty-first century—to utilize technology as a springboard for brainstorming, inquiry, and analysis rather than as a distraction from the educational environment. Our tutors model a lifelong love for learning, challenging students to pursue new ideas and points-of-view by fanning the flames of imagination, ingenuity, and achievement.
9th & 10th GRADES:
The road to higher education begins during the first year of high school. Students possessing strong time-management and study skills are more likely to successfully navigate the transition from 8th grade.
Axios Tutors provide specialized support, based upon individual assessments, including subject-specific sessions. We strive to boost students’ confidence by strengthening their note-taking, reading comprehension, and organizational skills: the kindling needed to ignite their academic potential.
11th & 12th GRADES:
College entrance exams loom large in the lives of high school juniors and seniors; our tutors are certified to deliver expert guidance in both ACT and SAT test preparation, as well as all Advanced Placement test subject areas. Offering group classes and one-on-one sessions, Axios tutors provide strategic feedback on a series of official practice exams, assigned to develop muscle memory and test-taking skills. As a result, our students report reduced anxiety during actual exam days and enjoy higher overall scores.
