Tutoring for Student Athletes

We at the D1 Development Group understand how important it is to have a healthy balance between academics and athletics. However, often times it is difficult for students to get the individual attention and help they need because of their busy extra-curricular schedules. We at the D1 Development Group would like to alleviate this problem by offering individual and small group tutoring sessions for students that is integrated into their extra-curricular schedule. (Grades K-8)

Why Have a Tutor?

- Give your student the attention the help he/she deserves to reach his/her maximum academic potential.

- Establish an organized and efficient study vs. play routine.

- Minimize travel to and from sports practice locations.

Where are the Sessions?
