Our Approach

We meet your children where they are and grow with them.

  • Whole Child

    For more than 30 years, SpiderSmart has promoted a “whole child”learning philosophy that prepares children to succeed in school and thrive in life.

  • Total Growth

    SpiderSmart tutors work diligently to get to know their students inside and out in order to help them build on their strengthsand overcome weaknesses. We quickly earn our SpiderSmart kids’ trust and forge deep and lasting bonds.

Our Priority

Helping your child become an independent thinker.

We don’t spoon-feed students facts and figures. Instead, we work with every student to unlock their innate curiosity. SpiderSmart kids ask questions, solve problems, and analyze issues. Our tutors challenge them to think for themselves.

With our holistic approach,your child will learn:

  • Critical Thinking

    not rote learning

  • Problem Solving

    not problem dodging

  • Confidence

    not just competence
