The Evolve Model
This is the foundation behind our tutoring process, as we believe all students are capable of achieving their academic aspirations if provided with the right tools and insights to truly grow.
By taking an active interest in the young people we work with, we support their academic growth while also helping them to develop as young adults.
The kids we work with are more than just struggling students. They are sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, athletes, band members, video game enthusiasts, writers, computer experts, and scientists.
We help them understand:
- Where they are putting energy
- How their focus impacts learning
- The difference between memorization and learning
- How to be purposefully engaged, the importance of process, and how a good process leads to good results
- How to become empowered in their own learning
We respect the whole person and foster the ability to master independent learning. Our creative and dedicated Boston tutors strive to help students look beyond their limitations and identify their unique strengths and challenges. We then create goals and objectives that help them move closer to their full potential.
Relationship-Based Tutoring ▼
Relationships are not simply a selling point for us, they are the very core of what we do. Evolve tutors believe that forming a genuine relationship with a student, based on trust and mutual respect, is the foundation of a successful tutoring process.
Truly Individualized Approach ▼
We are each so different, and these differences are part of what makes us who we are. Evolve’s tutoring and counseling approach is completely unique to each student we work with. While there are certain techniques and philosophies that we rely upon with all of our students, the implementation of them is completely singular to each student.
We Come To You ▼
There are enough things for parents to do each day without having to add another destination to the list. Our tutor coming to you is just plain easier. We also like the idea of being on the students “turf” so to speak. This gives us insight into who they are, and what their interests might be. Additionally, tutoring in your home allows us to evaluate their study space and suggest changes that may maximize their time and effort.
We Utilize Mindfulness ▼
Students of all ages are under more stress than ever before, both academically and socially. Telling them to “not stress so much” simply isn’t effective. We introduce students to concrete and accessible mindfulness techniques that help them slow down, be in the moment, and deal with their stress and anxiety in a much more productive manner.

Tutor/Student Match is Crucial ▼
Many tutoring centers use a “one size fits all” approach. At Evolve, making sure each student is paired with a tutor who is a good fit for them not only academically, but personally, is something we take seriously. In order to form a relationship, there must be a connection, and that can only happen if the tutor/tutee match works on a personal level. During our initial assessment and meeting, it’s important that we not only spend time with parents, but also one on one time with the student. From this very first meeting, we begin to get a sense of who the student is, what their needs are, and which of our highly qualified tutors would be the best fit.
