In our experience, many debate educators often focus on content and lectures instead of implementation. Our approach is the opposite.We rarely lecture and prefer free flowing conversations where students feel free to speak their mind and be equal participants in the conversation. This creates trust between student and instructor and ensures students feel comfortable making mistakes in the sessions, allowing faster progress. As trends evolve, so does strategy, and elite coaches must adapt to the game. We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve and students consistently approach us because of how effective our teaching techniques are.
Our approach to tutoring is uniquely individualized and detailed. We initially assess and determine each students’ weaknesses while onboarding them into our program. We help decide the best tutor, and work with our tutors to create custom lesson plans using our in-house teaching philosophy and methods. We use a professional suite of software to provide seamless and effective online education that allows for flexible learning and scheduling. Click below to view our offering in more detail:
