Our Approach

Class Half Full provides tutoring tailored to the specific needs of the learner enabling educational success for your Pre-K  through 12th grade student.


Each student is at his or her own place in the learning journey.   At Class Half Full, we meet them where they are.   We help you and your child determine the kind of support needed including the right tutor, the right material, and the right teaching method.


Learning to learn is integrated into everything we do.  We work with students to develop habits, tools, and techniques that enable successful learning for a lifetime.

We offer both in-person and virtual tutoring.

Our Students
  • Students struggling in one or more subject areas

  • Students challenged with organizational and time-management skills

  • Students dealing with anxiety about upcoming tests

  • Students who can benefit from understanding how they learn best

Our Philosopy

Every student learns differently.   At Class Half Full, we understand the importance of recognizing the individuality of your student so we can tailor learning solutions that are unique to them.   With this philosophy, we believe that we are preparing your student for a lifetime of learning.
