The A+ Skills Tutoring core service is providing high quality one-to-one tutoring services that are focused on the student’s success. In that regard, we firmly believe that success can be achieved at all levels of academic performance.
Our process starts with an assessment/evaluation of the student and situation at the student’s first session. These evaluations are performed by the Education Director and Tutor who will work with the student. No additional up-front fees are charged for the assessment nor do we develop a “set in stone” long-term education plan that requires a contract on the part of the parents.
Our philosophy is that student performance is a “work in progress” and, therefore, contracts with specific numbers of sessions are not relevant. Tutors assist their students until they, the student or the parent(s) are satisfied that the education objective has been achieved. In achieving that objective, we use a disciplined approach to tutoring which starts with the development of an A+ Skill Learning Plan that provides a road map to success. To facilitate the development of such a plan, the Education Director and Tutor get inputs from a number of sources.
First, the parents are asked to complete a confidential application that requests information from their perspective. In addition, the Tutor will evaluate the student’s strengths and weaknesses and discusses these findings with the Director. Finally, with permission, the Tutor will confidentially discuss the Learning Plan with the child’s classroom teacher and/or guidance counselor. Depending on the specific circumstances, the Tutor may also require some diagnostic testing to complete the assessment. It is our policy, however, to avoid unnecessary testing as well as the expense of testing.
The A+ Skills Learning Plan provides a road map with which the Tutor and the parent(s) can judge the student’s progress. After each session the parents receive written and verbal feedback, as well as suggestions on how progress can be enhanced.
