All Subject Tutoring
We offer one-on-one and small group tutoring, creating custom tutoring plans for each student based on distinctive learning profiles and goals. We offer individualized tutoring in all subjects for grades PK-12th, college level courses, including AP classes and Honors courses.
When it comes to tutoring and academic advancement, Groza goes far beyond simply finding the correct answer; we seek to enhance, and even entirely reshape how a student thinks about a subject. We work with families to identify learning objectives and build a tailor-made learning program for each child. We carefully monitor and optimize that plan as each child advances, giving special attention to the unique learning style, how to effectively engage and inspire the student, and what the individual progress suggests moving forward.
Tutoring with Management
Tutoring with Management, a signature Groza program, combines all the aspects of subject tutoring, plus a comprehensive accountability and executive-functioning component that is second to none. This is a proven-effective method of keeping kids on track as they develop into independent students. This program encourages autonomy, good decision making, and executive functioning skills.
Reading Fluency (all ages)
We are experts in Lindamood-Bell’s Seeing Stars ® curriculum for reading fluency. We offer a robust solution for students who struggle with issues such as fluency, decoding, and spelling. This program is for children who are challenged in learning to read or are delayed in reaching their reading potential. These sessions are chock-full of stimulating exercises and games that make reading fun.
Reading Comprehension Intensive (all ages)
We specialize in Lindamood-Bell’s Visualizing and Verbalizing® reading comprehension program. This program is for students who struggle to comprehend what they have read and/or to think critically about reading material. Our tutors are trained to educate students in the process of creating movies in their heads while reading, which allows them to 1. Remember details and 2. Be able to think critically and analyze what they have read.
We are proud to offer the leading, most renowned handwriting program available at Groza. It is offered for both printing and cursive writing.

Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics: A Writing Course
In this program, your child will understand the basics of the English language in order to use it freely and properly. Although the lessons include basic grammar, they also incorporate engaging writing assignments so your child can implement the new skills in a fun way.
Is there consistent dread each time there is a writing assignment?
Each student chooses what to write, whether it is a short story, a small screenplay, a poem, or a magazine article.
This program will walk your child through the basics of academic writing. Each student will learn how to properly write a literary analysis, a narrative, and opinion and argumentative essays. The student will leave this course having mastered key concepts such as using quotes and paraphrasing, , developing a thesis statement, and understanding the basic model of the multi-paragraph composition.
Is your child struggling with math? This course is designed to fill in the gaps in math concepts that the student may have missed in prior years. We start with a grade level diagnostic and base our lessons on the test results and feedback received when working with the student. This program is a great option to help kids build their confidence in math.
This program is designed to expose children to the excitement of foreign languages and cultures.
Tutoring for Athletes
Participating in sports while in school is similar to holding down two full-time jobs. Our instructors can give you the time management, organizational, and planning tools you need to reach your full potential.
When a student struggles with Executive Functioning, it is common to see difficulty with the following:
Systematic, clear instruction and strategies are at the heart of Executive Functioning remediation. It is important to model, teach, and test different coping and metacognitive strategies so that the student can adopt new ways of thinking about and doing work. Through targeted exercises and real-world implementation of such structure, students begin to build new ways of thinking, habits, and routines that directly impact not only schoolwork, but also day-to-day living.
Credit Recovery Classes
Concurrently enrolled students (students enrolled in another school full-time) may opt to take required or elective courses at Groza.
Organizing, Note-taking, Annotating, Studying…
