FAQ

 

Q: What happens during each tutoring session?

A: At every tutoring session, each student is assigned to a tutor who best fits the student's profile. After the pairing, the tutor will tutor the student for 50 minutes, break for 10 minutes, and resume tutoring for another 50 minutes. 

Q: Do students have to bring their own materials to work on?

A: While students are encouraged to bring material they can work on, we do provide workbooks for those who come empty handed.

Q: What can parents do to help?

A: Other than provide transportation for children to and from the tutoring location, parents are advised to arrange monthly meetings with the tutor or center manager to talk about their child's progress.

Q: How can you contact a tutor or center manager?

A: Center managers will provide the e-mails and phone numbers of the tutors upon request. A run-down of each day's tutoring session will be given 5-10 minutes before the end of the session.

Q: What is a student profile?

A: The student profile allows the tutors to get to know the children better so they can receive the education best suited to their personalities. In order to do so, parents must answer the questions on our website identifying their child's learning style as well as strengths and weaknesses.
