PreK Kindergarten 1st Grade 2nd Grade

Get ready to learn, play and explore.

Firefly Tutoring is a specialized educational tutoring service designed to shape and prepare your Pre-K-2nd grade child to succeed and excel within the elementary level. Firefly tutoring focuses on teaching the fundamentals for reading and writing using technology, hands on activities, fine arts, music and movement, as well as exploration and play to enhance your child’s learning.  We feel that learning should be fun and meet the needs of each individual student.  No child learns the same, therefore we want to provide an array of learning tools that will engage your child in their learning and provide them with the means for success. Our goal is to enlighten the minds of your child as they explore in their own learning.

Work together to create teamwork and problem-solving skills.

Children are always learning and always shining like little fireflies!  Through our tutoring program we want to create opportunities for children to use their imagination and become creative and critical thinkers as they work together with other children their age in a small group environment. We will:

  •  Focus on creating an enriching environment where children learn to become creative thinkers while intertwining elements of the Common Core Standards.
  • Use various strategies to ensure the needs of every child are met based on their own level
  • Learn and work together within a small group setting of no more than 4 children at one time
