The One-to-One Tutoring Advantage at NRICH Tutoring
Services available ONLINE or
IN-PERSON in our offices located at
1477 So. Knowles Ave.,
New Richmond, Wisconsin
Students may work online or on-site; either way, students are paired with a tutor who works exclusively with that student during their session. Tutors give undivided attention in the one-on-one sessions - which is very different from other tutoring centers, afterschool programs, or online classes. Online students can be from any part of the United States - we have had students from New York to Colorado. Locally, students come from across St. Croix, Polk, and Pierce counties.
Working one-on-one with a tutor allows the tutor to tailor lessons specifically for their needs. Students get the tutor's full attention and thrive on the interaction. Our private tutoring spaces have windows for parents to check on their student as they work with the tutor. Each tutoring space has lots of resources to engage learners and room to move around. Fidgets and ball or wobbly chairs are available if needed. Each student has their own supplies, kept in their own bin. It is like a mini-classroom where lots of learning can take place.
Online Learning is done with secure Zoom meetings, using interactive technologies to make learning engaging. Tutors and students are face-to-face so they can talk directly. Students have the tutor's attention so it is very similar to in-person learning. Online tutoring saves time and money, making it a good option for many families.
Tutoring spaces provide face-to-face interaction and resources to make learning fun!
Our waiting room doubles as a small group space for special classes with up to 6 students. We also have a large classroom space available for workshops.

Meet Our Academic Director
Dr. Judie Harrington is an experienced elementary teacher, who also has taught college students preparing to be K-8 teachers. Since opening NRICH Tutoring in 2017, she has seen hundreds of students of all ages. Her experience with struggling readers in her family and her classroom made her sensitive to their needs and challenges. As an academic, she learned the importance of staying current with research and questioning practices that do not align with research. As a tutor, she uses the science of reading and works hard to incorporate best practices based on that. Dr. Judie created NRICH as a place where students can be enriched and empowered to be the best they can be.
