We have been a premier provider of professional education services for Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton and surrounding San Francisco Peninsula communities since 1976. Looking for multi-sensory math tutoring, help with writing, study skills support, educational testing or expert insight about how your student learns? QWERTY is here to assist.

Since we began offering tutoring in Menlo Park in 1976, our philosophy has been simple yet inspired: Students who develop self-understanding gain self-confidence and make educational progress to achieve their academic goals.

Everything we do reflects that philosophy. We are professional educators and learning specialists that build supportive relationships through one-on-one tutoring and other education-focused efforts.

Karyn Bosco, M.A. Education

"It is my passion to find and bring out the strengths in every student. We are all unique learners and a 'one size fits all' education should not be thought of as a solution."

Qualifications

Our staff includes professional tutors and specialists from the fields of learning disabilities, educational psychology and educational therapy. Team members are skilled at assessing students' immediate needs, while developing longer-term strategies to improve academic performance and learning.

QWERTY’s Core Service providers are experienced in meeting a diversity of student needs including the development of techniques to compensate for obstacles to learning.

Collaboration

Students at QWERTY typically work directly with one or two of our staff, but in actuality, the expertise and experiences of several staff members are often brought to bear in working with a student.

As a student's needs change over time, we rely on collaboration to determine appropriate next steps. This may involve a student working with more than one staff member, or even transitioning the student to a different staff professional.

Communication

Our staff members regularly communicate with parents and in many cases, speak with and work with teachers, counselors and other professionals.

Coordinating between several members of a child’s education team requires sound judgment and communication skills. We are among the most sought after independent educators, so you can be confident that when you engage our services, you are working with a team of experts with unparalleled professionalism.
