Georgia Argyle is the owner of Thrive Tutoring, a company she founded in 2016 after 18 years of working with children in a variety of care-giving and educational settings. Georgia has spent most of her life researching information about individual learning styles and the importance of presenting information and resources in a manner that is appropriate to each child. From the time she was 10 years old, watching her mother support her younger brother, Georgia has been seeking support and resources for students who need it.
Currently Georgia is working with individual students to develop educational programs and resources that suit their needs and learning styles. She enjoys her work with students and is able to help them find the personal motivation they need to achieve their goals.
Georgia has worked with children from age 2.5 to 18 providing developmentally appropriate learning support for each age. Personal study of Gordon Neufeld and Gabor Maté’s work on attachment and relationship has provided the foundation for Georgia’s approach to her work with children. First building trust through connection, then moving into academic work allows her to support the student without resistance or anxiety.
