Why Us?

Personalized Learning

At Nourishing Minds Tutoring, all tutoring sessions are completely tailored to match your child’s specific educational needs. Comparing this to a normal classroom setting, the teacher may have to differentiate each lesson for almost 30 pupils, making it very difficult to account for every child’s educational needs. Our services ensure that your child receives the undivided attention of their tutor.

Engaging Lessons

We aim to make every lesson enjoyable for your child. By getting to know their likes and interests, we tailor learning activities so that they are stimulating and inspiring. While worksheets can be a valuable tool for learning, we will make learning come alive by providing practical and hands-on activities whenever possible.


Tutoring sessions will take place in the comfort and convenience of your own home. We understand that many families are faced with time constraints and busy schedules. We will work with your busy schedule to arrange a time that fits into your day.


Assessments are carried out regularly in schools. However, these assessments compare your child’s performance to a national benchmark, and will not indicate where your child may be struggling. Nourishing Minds Tutoring conducts assessments that are diagnostic in nature, so we are able to pinpoint exactly where intervention is needed to ensure that teaching and learning activities are structured according to your child’s specific educational needs. Upon completion of our assessments we provide detailed analysis to parents.


Research has shown that tutoring yields a fantastic return on your investment and can have a profound impact on your child’s academic success. We offer extremely competitive pricing, in fact, we are cheaper than the corporate tutoring centers, and we come to you! Nourishing Minds Tutoring has no registration fees, and we do not lock you into long term commitments. Please contact us for more information.

Common Core

We understand the Common Core. All of our assessments and lessons are linked to the Learning Standards of the Common Core State Standards of New York. We set educational targets that are directly aligned with the learning standards to ensure crossover with the education your child receives at school.


We offer superior communication with parents. You will receive a summary of every tutoring session, and regular reports and feedback regarding the progress of your child. We are always only an email or phone call away, and always encourage parents to contact us with any comments, concerns, or suggestions they may have. Furthermore, we will work with your child’s classroom teacher (with permission) to ensure the needs of your child are being met.


Our tutors are certified elementary school teachers, have a combined experience of over 17 years of classroom teaching, and 8 years tutoring. We are highly professional, committed, and know what it takes to help children learn.
  • My daughter Gabriella has been home tutoring with Nourishing Minds Tutoring now for two years. The staff and teachers with Nourishing Minds are exceptional! My daughter’s comprehension, confidence and even work ethic has been built strategically since the very beginning. The results thus far are still flourishing. We continue to keep Nourishing Minds Tutoring in Gabriella’s life moving forward, as a maintenance and partnership for the changing times in curriculum ahead.
    We are so grateful for all that is offered to my daughter, and us as a family, alleviating many frustrations that come with academic achievement.

  • Nourishing Minds has bridged the gap for our son from scoring below grade levels to getting on the path of meeting an exceeding! Nourishing Minds quickly identified our son's deficiencies as well as identified his strengths to determine the best course of action for his progression. His tutor, Chris, has been able to identify with Silvio's personality with the utmost of ease and has individualized his path to success on a par with Silvio's in school lessons. Chris comes to our house, spends an hour or more with our son, working tirelessly on strategies to help him succeed. Chris leaves each week after a comprehensive explanation of their work and goals moving forward. I could think of no better stepping stone to give your child a head above the rest!

  • Nourishing Minds Tutoring has been tutoring our son since 2015. It has been a great experience for him and for us.
    My son is currently attending third grade. He has major attention challenges and finds it very hard to stay on task. Despite that, his tutor has been able to bond with him and motivate him to focus . He utilizes many creative and unique teaching techniques that have helped our son a great deal. He enjoys the sessions and his grades have improved significantly.
    We highly recommend Nourishing Minds Tutoring.

  • Chris of Nourishing Minds Tutoring has been working with my eight-year-old daughter in math for several months. In that time, we have seen an incredible improvement in her test scores and her confidence. Chris is patient and kind, yet knows when to be firm and encourage my daughter to overcome her hesitation when answering math problems.
    The work that Chris did with our daughter over the summer also prepared her for what would be taught at the beginning of the 3rd grade. She started the year feeling confident and unafraid of new concepts, such as multiplication, and has been bringing home A’s on her math tests for the first time. I highly recommend Nourishing Minds Tutoring!
