Our Tutoring Approach
At Mavin, our goal is to help students gain a deep understanding of subjects they may be struggling with, and confidence in their abilities to apply their learning. Our system takes students through the process of learning, breaks it down into easy-to-tackle steps that help make daunting subjects easier to approach, and helps them build resilience to face new and unfamiliar problems as they continue their learning journey.
Our tutors are professional and patient, and use a variety of approaches depending on the student’s needs and learning styles. And they all strive to first create an environment of mutual respect, where students would feel comfortable examining their weaknesses and take charge of their own learning, so they can be confident taking on the heavy mantle of life-long learners.
In our practice, we pride ourselves on staying abreast of the latest research in how we learn and retain information and applying that to our processes, such as spaced repetition of concepts following the forgetting curve to help students construct long-term memories; actively engaging different senses to aid student’s learning, as well as other mindful learning practices that help improve students focus and reduce the stress associated with studying. We structure our tutoring sessions to include lectures, guided and independent practice, and student work to demonstrate mastery of the concepts so they progress with confidence.
Our Tutoring Process
The Academic Help You Need, The Personal Attention You Deserve
All incoming students take an initial diagnostic test. We will then schedule a face-to-face consultation to review the test report in detail and to understand the student more. We will then match the student with a suitable private instructor.
After one to two sessions to get to know the student in action, the private instructor will put together a personalized study plan with the best-fit materials, frequency and focus, for the student to achieve his or her academic goals.
The private instructor will identify and address the student’s weak areas by going over content area, guided and independent practice, and assessing mastery through student work.
Mavin program coordinators closely monitor the student’s progress and communicate with the student, parents, and tutors to track the student’s progress and adjust learning plans along the way.
We not only help students improve their grades and academic performance, but also help student learn valuable study skills essential to their academic success, and help them develop into independent and lifelong learners.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Real success stories that changes lives.
Mr. Rose & the Mavin team were instrumental in both my success in high school and my development as a young adult. Mr. Rose provided me with great mentorship, and helped me to become a top student.
My wife and I interviewed other tutoring centers and found them either too focused on just Asian students or had an arrogant attitude. On the other hand, we have been with Mavin for the last year or so and find this to be a very well-run and professional tutoring center.
I will be attending New York University, Tandon School of Engineering in fall, 2018. Despite having been learning English for four long years, I still can’t use words to describe my gratitude toward Mavin tutors and the Rose couple.
I started going to Mavin around 2 years ago and the teachers here are great! I’ve learned a lot and my grades have gone up thanks to the great teachers. I consider greatly to try this school out.
