Maggie's Place LLC provides tutoring in Math and Reading at our Idaho Falls Tutoring Center, for students in grades K-12 including special needs students. Our program is a dynamic and designed to engage students in one-on-one instruction and in small groups of no more than four (4) in positive minded instructional strategies.


We work directly with the student's textbook and augment the lessons with reinforcement of foundational skills. We use SRA McGraw Hill Reading and Excel Math to implement an integrated approach of tutoring.  For the PSAT, ACT and SAT, we use Kaplan, Princeton Review and CollegeBoard study and test prep materials.


Throughout our instruction, we use AIMSWeb Plus to guide our instruction, measure and inform our process, and monitor and benchmark our progress.


Our tutors are professionals and they truly care about your student's academic success. They are trained and equipped to work with your student to identify core areas for study and pursue excellence and success as a team. In addition, Maggie's Place tutors work closely with parents or guardians of our students and we will keep you informed of every step of their progress along the way.


Sessions are held for 1 hour intervals, 1-3 times per week. Tutoring is also available on Saturdays and Sundays by appointment.


When you call, our first step with you will be to schedule an Intake and Assessment for you with our Tutoring Coordinator. We will then create a custom tutoring plan guided by the Assessment and your student's educational goals. Your student will be assigned a tutor who matches the education, skills and credentials needed and will work under the guidance and direction of our Tutoring Coordinator and/ or specialists.


Our rates range from $30.00 to $70.00 per hour based on the age of the student, the credentials and degrees held by the tutor, and any special requirements needed.


Intake Assessments (a $95 value) are currently being provided at no charge.
