Our Guiding Beliefs

Fresh Slate Tutoring is comprised of tutors who love teaching and want an avenue to work with students of all ages and abilities. Our staff and faculty work to translate these beliefs into our teaching and business practices.

Each student

is an individual, with unique gifts and struggles.
One-to-one tutoring lets us assess and understand each student who comes to us for guidance or enrichment.


requires the learner to participate actively.
We emphasize practice. Within months, our students begin correcting themselves while reading aloud or editing their writing.


requires two ingredients: regular practice and patience.
The vast majority of our students stay with their tutors all through high school, learning skills not to merely survive in college but to thrive there.

is not a vessel that needs filling...
"... but wood that needs igniting."
