Holistic Tutoring at AUM
Tutoring can be much more than helping a student use better grammar or improve a test score. It can be life-changing for young people moving toward further education. At AUM, we take a holistic approach to education, which means looking not just at the numbers but at the whole person. Holistic tutoring is about becoming an active partner with students, guiding them to self-motivate and practice self-care in order to achieve their optimum performance.
Holistic tutoring at AUM includes:
- Techniques for honing focus
- Practical organizational skills
- Healthy diet recommendations to create balance
- Approaches for combating fatigue
- Movement, meditation, and breathing tools to reduce stress and clear the mind
- Positive reinforcement to catalyze new habits that work better
We offer holistic tutoring for students in grades 6 to 12, in the following subjects:
- English/Language Arts/Literature
- Research skills
- College essays
A Living Values Approach to Writing the College Essay
Are you or your high school junior or senior struggling to hone in on an essay topic for a college application? Work with Melinda to uncover an essay topic and approach that expresses who you really are. Melinda, a former English teacher, has successfully used the Living Values methodology to help students create powerful written reflections on their beliefs and convictions in relation to themselves, others, the community, and the world at large. The process involves using questions and answers to zero in on the essence of the topic, while simultaneously creating an outline for the essay.
