Beaven & Associates is a private tutoring agency established in 1976 and dedicated to creating individualized programs that put the student at the center of his or her own educational experience.
Each program is self-paced and takes into account a student's learning style, aptitude and potential.
Each student contracts with his tutor to work together to achieve the student's goal within an agreed upon time frame. A student may aim to reach a better performance level in his present school work, attain a higher score on the College Boards, or pursue an extra subject for personal enrichment. Some students choose a program that complements their regular school work throughout the academic year. Others prefer to come for a limited time block or to attend summer sessions.
The tutor at Beaven & Associates believes that teaching is an art, that as in the Socratic method, the teacher is a learning and exploring participant in the process, and that in the right setting the human mind will grow at its best when cultivated and challenged. The role of the tutor is to strive to enhance the student's natural curiosity, imagination, and independent thinking.
We welcome students from grade school through college and work with them one-on-one and in small group tutorials. Sessions are normally scheduled in six-week renewable blocks or intensive summer tutorials.
