DEVELOPING THE PROPER PLAN
We realize that students learn best when their tutor is a perfect match. Our focus on tutor-student compatibility starts with a conversation with a parent or guardian before tutoring begins. The consultation covers a student's academic history, study habits, extracurricular pursuits, and personality. Once we've settled upon the best tutor for your student, that tutor develops a personalized, specific subject tutoring plan for the first meeting with your child. This plan is based on the student's immediate as well as long term academic needs.
After the first few sessions, we assess the situation and determine if we have the correct match or if another tutor ought to be considered. We never settle for anything less than the perfect fit.
In addition to general academic subject tutoring, our tutors also help students with study skills including time management, organization, note taking and more. Tutors (or Academic Coaches) assess the student's entire academic life. Together, the tutor and student tackle organization of the notebooks, backpack, and desk used every day to ensure that completed assignments can be found class handouts don’t get lost. Study skills tutoring also includes creating a calendaring system so students always know when work is due and don’t get surprised by long term assignments. The tutor and student work together as a team to determine whether note taking, test preparation, filling systems and other protocols need to be put in place.
These skills give students the confidence that academic success is in reach and daily responsibilities are under control. Students find these skills useful throughout their academic lifetime and into their professional careers.
