Assessments

Do you want to know how your child is doing in school?

Do you want specific ideas and strategies on how to help your child at home?

Our ASSESSMENT process for grades K-6 can provide you with information on what your child knows, how your child learns best, and what strategies would help your child be more successful in school.

Our assessments cover the following academic areas:

1)  Mathematics

2)  Reading

3)  Spelling

4)  Writing

What happens during the assessment?

  • First, we meet with the parent to discuss the child.  We want to know what the child is good at, what the child struggles with, feedback that the teacher has given to the parent, and results of any testing (formal and class tests).
  • Second, we meet with the child and have an interactive session while the child answers questions in the subject area.  This is an informal assessment – not a standardized assessment and therefore we can get the big picture about your child, not just how well they can perform on a standardized test.  We look at how the student reads a question, how they think through the answer, what strategies he or she uses, and is the answer correct.
  • Third, we meet with the parent again to discuss what we found during the session.
  • Fourth, we provide you with a written report that tells you what your child knows, what they don’t know, how the child learns and approaches problems, and what educational methods best fit your child and will help the child be successful.
  • Lastly, we make recommendations for regular tutoring, parent classes *(see below), and ideas to present to the teacher to get your teacher’s help for improving the academic work of your child.

After assessments, we now work with students using Home Based Tutoring Programs –

Students learn best when they get specific  practice and study guides targeted at their areas of weakness.  We will provide this based on your child’s areas of weakness, we will design online videos (designed around specific skills for YOUR child) for your child to watch, practice problems that start easy and get gradually more difficult, questions that not only ask the student to “do problems” but test that the remember the steps of HOW to solve the problem, remember previous material that they tend to forget, and concepts around the existing material.  We stay in touch via email, skype, handouts, and videos.  We reassess and continue to build the program around your child’s needs.

Don’t sign up for a program that is build around a hypothetical child, invest in a program that makes all materials specifically for YOUR child.
