Whether your child is below grade level, at grade level, or above grade level, we offer individualized tutoring plans for each child we serve. At the beginning of the program, we will assess your child to find their unique strengths and weaknesses. Based on the assessment results, we will tailor make a personalized learning plan for each student. Our world-class teachers will implement the plan for the duration of the program.
We cover the areas of Reading and Math in the program.
What is the time commitment?
Students and families must commit to 60-120 minutes per week of tutoring, plus 30 minutes per week of tutoring homework. Tutoring occurs on evenings and weekends, so it doesn’t interfere with regular school.
