The sessions are catered to the student. There are many cases where students complete homework during the session, other students may leave homework for home and solely work on getting ahead or catching up if they are behind.
Majority of the time we focus on re-teaching concepts covered in class and then utilize homework or study guides as a way to assess that the student can handle the work moving forward. We utilize the time remaining to work on any concepts the student struggled with or getting them ahead in subjects of their choice.
We do offer specific courses working on writing, reading and math foundations for those students who are behind in class. Most of our sessions revolve around the curriculum covered in class to ensure that students are seeing the same material during our sessions.
Instructors make note of what was worked on as well as any strengths and weaknesses they saw. Once the session is completed the instructors inform the parents in depth during our in-person sessions.
All tutoring sessions are one hour long and begin at the top of the hour, for example 3pm or 5pm. We do offer 30 min sessions for Pre-K students.
We recommend starting with once a week and working your way up as you see fit. Having a consistent schedule will benefit the student a ton!
