Learning at the Fluency Factory
At The Fluency Factory, we use clear and advanced approaches to teaching and work one on one with each student to individualize their learning experience. This allows our tutors to serve a variety of different student needs, from the beginner to the advanced high school student.
Using proven teaching strategies we have developed over the past 15 years, we are able to measure a student's learning achievements after each session to ensure that our students are rapidly learning new skills.
We help every student achieve a level of fluency in scholastic subjects, developing useful and durable skills. These "automatic skills" that are being achieved build confidence that carries over to the classroom environment and beyond.
