Special Needs: Tutoring and Support
Aptos Academic Trainers is a local family-run business which opened in September 2004. The owner, Mary Simonson, started "Academic Trainers" in 2002 in Menlo Park as a result of growing demand for her tutoring services. We are a unique center in that we offer both 1:1 tutoring and drop-in homework help for preschool through 12th grade in all subjects, and computer and language training for adults. Our high-tech and functional workspace allows each student to accomplish his or her homework in a professional and efficient manner. Students are matched with an energetic, intelligent, motivated tutor to help them grasp concepts and learn how to study for tests and tackle assignments. The center is open Sunday through Thursday from 11-9 pm to allow students to drop-in for homework help after sports or other activities. The Resource Center is stocked with state-of-the-art computers, copy machines, laminators, binders and posterboard for those special projects that keep parents up at night!

Individualized Tutoring by Nancy Winans, 831-454-8692
Summer is a great time for learning and for some students, an opportunity to catch up or prepare for the next academic year. I use a friendly and supportive approach in building a student's self-confidence and learning skills. Working together, we define realistic expectations and set achievable goals. By exploring a student’s interests and how he or she assimilates information, we identify the most effective mode of “learning how to learn” for the student. During a free appointment we can explore together how we can best support your student in achieving increased self-esteem through academic success.
