Now is the time to truly start discovering the world. What better place to start than at Tutor Time? Our exclusive Tutor Time® LifeSmart™ curriculum was designed to encourage exploration and embrace all the different ways that children excel. Aligned with standards set forth by national accrediting associations, this curriculum helps children expand on their own unique gifts or "smarts." And it works: a recent kindergarten readiness study showed that in just six months, children in our program made educational gains usually expected after a full year.
