Former math teacher Lindsey Thompson left Highland Park High School to pursue a PhD in math education, and she now uses her powers of explanation in private and small group tutoring and educational-therapy classes at Park Cities Academic Services. Educational therapy is a method of scholastic training that focuses not just on the content of the class but also on the sociological and emotional barriers students face, such as the desire to make their report card spell “DAD.” Tutoring sessions might focus on standardized-test preparation, college applications and essays, or paper writing, and Thompson also fills her calendar with craft activities and field trips.
The instructors at 37 Ways seek not to be mere tutors but mentors as well, guiding students toward a better understanding of math concepts, computer programs, Chinese, and standardized testing. Small group lessons and one-on-one instruction cover many types of math from pre-algebra onward, as well as SAT and ACT prep. Likewise, a host of Chinese classes explore everything from conversational speech and calligraphy to history and culture. Computer-program classes examine software such as Microsoft Office and WordPress. Though many of 37 Ways' tutoring programs are for young students, adults can unwind with laidback calligraphy classes that teach the Chinese character for "401k".
