About Our Tutors
Our tutors are content experts. They all have their Special Education credentials and are certified to tutor through our rigorous certification program. We only hire people who have a love for teaching and learning. You can rest assured we will work to make sure you are matched with a tutor that fit your specific needs.
Our tutors have one or more of the following:
State Teaching Certificate
SpEd Teaching Credentials
Bachelors, Masters, or PhD
Our tutors work closely with schools, teachers, parents, and students to ensure the best tutoring experience possible. Some of our tutors still teach in public and private schools, some are retired teachers, some have extensive experience in other careers, and some are in college hoping to teach students full time one day. However, no matter their background or area of expertise, they all have a undeniable passion for helping students succeed!
Our academic services provide support for all school-aged children from Pre-K to 12th grade in either an individual or small group setting. Our services emphasize subject specific content in reading, writing, English Language Arts (ELA), math, and science. We also provide general academic support in English Language Learners (ELL), social emotional learning, and academic coaching. As deemed safe and appropriate, these subject specific and general academic support services are delivered via a blend of online and in-person activities.
Tutoring begins with a pre-assessment to set goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based. These goals serve as the foundation for each student’s personalized learning plan. The personalized learning plan details the method that will be used to reach those goals, and the monitoring instrument that will be used to gauge the method’s effectiveness. All stakeholders (e.g. parents, teachers, students, tutors, etc.) provide input in the completion of the learning plan. Regulary scheduled assessments are used to track student progress and make adjustments along the way. At the conclustion of the program, students take a summative assessment to measure growth in the areas described in the learning plan. An end of service report detailing student progress and overall student growth is then distributed to parents, schools, and students for review.
Until further notice, all tutorials, parent conferences, and teacher conferences are occurring virtually as part of the learning path. We will continue blended learning once it has been deemed safe to do so.
A small learning cohort consists of 4-7 students that have similar academic needs. Cohorts meet weekly for one hour. One on one tutoring is also available for anyone that prefers that option.
We have a rigorous system for ongoing tutor verification and FERPA training that enhances student safety and privacy in the learning environment. We comply with all federal, state, and local health, safety, and civil rights laws. Our tutors consist of either state certified teachers or highly trained tutors with at least 60 credit hours from an accredited college or university. Tutors submit daily reports on classroom activities; such as, attendance, student performance, and parent/teacher communication. Tutors also participate in on-going professional development during non-program hours to improve their curriculum delivery, parent/teacher communication, and their ability to monitor student progress.
We utilizes culturally diverse and responsive curriculum materials and strategies that are sensitive to and free of culture, gender, and socio-economic bias. With an emphasis on equity and access, students interact with diverse and engaging resources that assists those farthest from proficiency by providing them with appropriate scaffolds that improve their academic achievement. All students, regardless of their disability or ELL status, are served through the program. We ensures that both social interdependence and individual accountability are an active element of every student’s success.
