For most parents with students in middle school, English/Reading/Writing and mathematics are the areas requiring most attention and pose the biggest concern. Many middle school students also struggle with time management, study skills, and organization as their class workloads increase and become far more challenging than what they are familiar with in elementary school.
OUR PHILOSOPHY & PROCESS:
Our middle school tutoring team follows our main philosophy and mission for all of our programs: to assist their students until they, the student or the parent(s) are satisfied that the education objective has been achieved.
WHERE WE START:
We start with an evaluation of the student’s strengths beginning at their current grade level.
WHEN & HOW EVALUATIONS OCCUR:
Evaluations occur at the student’s first session. Specific evaluations are designed by the Education Director and Tutor assigned to work with the student. It is our policy, however, to avoid unnecessary testing as well as the expense of testing. Prior to their evaluation, please send our office any pertinent information that may assist in establishing a tutoring program (report cards, FSA results, IEPs, etc.).
WE COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR STUDENT’S TEACHER(S):
With parental consent, the Education Director and your student’s tutor(s) are able to directly coordinate our customized learning plan for your student with that of their classroom teachers!
WORKING WITH OUR TEAM, SCHEDULING, & STUDENT/PARENT COMMITMENT:
Tutor Assignments: The Education Director selects the most qualified tutors for your student based on scheduling availability for both tutors and students, as well as factoring in specific requests and personalities.
Scheduling: Middle school students are encouraged to attend at least one or two hour-long sessions per week for the best learning outcomes.
Student/Parent Dedication & Commitment: In addition to your student’s in-office tutoring each week, students will be assigned homework that reinforces the skills and strategies taught in their sessions. It is crucial for middle school students to complete their assignments so more advanced tutoring may follow with encouragement from their parents. These homework assignments also act as additional assessments for the tutors on your student’s in school and at-home progress outside of our office.
