Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our tutoring, college prep, and counseling services have moved to online video conferencing
BEGINNING JUNE 15: LTS has both in-home and online tutoring available; our in-home tutoring policy requires mutual face masks and reasonable physical distancing.
Lane Tutoring Service's staff are local experienced, professional teachers who understand Eugene and Springfield schools' specific circumstances and expectations, and are experienced and comfortable using video conferencing with students.
In addition, we are keeping updated on the changing expectations regarding future college admissions' procedures, including SAT/ACT requirements.
We look forward to helping our students and their families continue to build success in their academic and other pursuits during this challenging time.
Lane Tutoring Service, Inc. provides experienced, professional teachers who work one - on - one with school - age children and youth in Eugene/Springfield, Oregon. We provide academic instruction and support as well as college preparatory services.
Our goals are to improve academic skills and performance, to inspire confidence so our students undertake challenges with assurance, and to motiv ate our students to reach for and perform at their potential.
Lane Tutoring Service , under the directio n of Joshua Hirschstein, has been trusted by local students and parents in Eugene and Springfield since 1990.
Students and their families find our non - prescriptive approach to academic tutoring focused, flexible, engaging, and effective. Each tutor - an experienced, profe ssional teacher - designs and implements an approach and curriculum that caters specifically to each individual's personal and scholastic needs, strengths, and weaknesses.
Our teachers provide creative teaching techniques and one - one - one guidance to meet students' academic needs. Needs generally fall into two categories:
School-year Support: : Many capable students struggle to meet their school's academic requirements, or perform only to meet minimum expectations. Lane Tutoring Service engages each student in the assigned curriculum by re - teaching and enriching what is necessary for quality homework and classroom performance, providing remedial instruction in areas of assumed knowledge, and honing study, organizational, and time management skills. We also ad vocate for our students by communicating with teachers and counselors to assure that a student's specific needs are being met. The bottom line is that our students learn more, perform more efficiently, get better grades, and build academic confidence and m otivation.
Curriculum Design: : Our engaging teachers write and teach specific coursework, from beginning reading to middle school writing to advanced calculus, to build student knowledge, skills, and confidence. We provide one - on - one instruction for students who are home - schooled, who desire to improve specific skills in the summer, or whose needs are not being met in the traditional school setting.
We firmly believe that every student has unique strengths to be nurtured, and each of us is committed to developing a positive self - image and encouraging individual growth and responsibility within each student.
We are not lecturers; we are not pedantic. We are doers. We capture students' attention and direct them to their potential. We guide our students to be more efficient and focused. We are friendly and pro - active, and our students enjoy working with us.
Tutoring usually takes place at the student's home. Arrangements can be made to meet at the student's school or another location. LTS recommends mee ting at least twice each week.
