Option A (Core Learning)
STEP 1: Assessment
The first lesson
begins with an initial assessment of the student's literacy skills.
Here, I am able to detect strengths and areas for improvement.
My assessment is also ongoing as I track the individual student's
progress during each lesson. This information helps develop the course of my future
STEP 2: Learning
the assessment is complete, the student is given a custom made
program. The learning material is created from a combination of both textbooks
and online resources, but mainly my own material, which
is tailored to meet the student's specific need. In addition, I do
provide homework for additional support upon request.
The program can cover the following areas:
STEP 3: Progress Report
While I offer feedback after each lesson, I also provide
detailed report cards upon request after every 3 months of lessons. The report
is very specific. Each skill area is given a rating of the
following: Excellent, Good, Satisfactory or Needs
Improvement. In addition, a description is given for each skill, explaining the
nature of the student's progress.
This option is recommended for students that do not
desire extra support in their reading and writing, but need
guidance in their homework. Homework help is also the
better option if the student's homework is not meeting expectations and they
need extra motivation or guidance.
NOTE- I only provide assistance in the following areas for homework help: English and Social Studies
Option C (Combination of Core Learning and Homework Help)
This option offers a combination of the core program and homework
help. This option may be preferable for students who need extra
academic support, but could also benefit from
completing their homework with a qualified English teacher.
When choosing this option, the student's learning potential is maximized. This is because the tutoring lesson will build on the same skills as those being exercised through the homework. Essentially, I specifically design the tutoring lesson to match the same skills areas from the teacher's homework assignment. As a result, the combination of my lessons with homework help creates an enhanced learning space to ensure student success.
This option also comes with an initial assessment as well as a report card every 3 months upon request.
