Our mission is to serve thriving students & the general public at large using a tailored tutor-mentorship approach as they pursue life. To foster a sense of belonging and a strong circle of support, our tutors use the principles of love and care with our students.
Our goal with Olive Tree Tutoring is to use a non-traditional teaching model that helps students grow at their own pace. Our youth are the future. We believe they deserve to have amazing people in their lives that can help them grow and prosper. Whether our students need academic or personal help, we’re here to answer that calling!
We offer 2 different programs - one of which has 3-tiers. Our first program is Tutoring - We help grades K-12, College Students, and ESL learners (ages 5 and up). Subjects covered: K-12 Math, Science, English, Social Studies, History, Reading / Phonics, and Essay Writing.
Our second service consists of our 3 tier mentorship programs: Therapeutic Mentoring, S.T.E.A.D.Y Athletic Training, and Career Readiness for Entrepreneurs.
Our mentorship programs are here to help students in need of guidance and stimulation. In order for one to feel valued and be inspired to improve their quality of life, they need positive reinforcement, an inclusive environment that provides outlets they enjoy for mental and emotional support.
Our 3-Tier Mentor-ship program is what makes us a non-traditional tutoring organization. We are most proud of our model because it allows us to avoid the revolving door sales approach so that our students can be molded into becoming the best version of themselves!
