Our Approach

Our Approach

Above Grade Level offers one-to-one tutoring in the student’s home by expert and professional tutors. This approach minimizes distractions and peer pressure and ensures that the student receives the undivided attention of our tutor at all times. We begin by giving the student a img5 standardized skills assessment in math and/or reading developed by experts in the field of education. Based on this assessment, which gives us a detailed picture of the student’s learning needs, we design a personalized learning program that is tailored to the unique needs and learning style of the individual student, so the maximum progress can be made in achieving their academic goals.

Above Grade Level employs Research-Based Best Practices as recommended by leading experts in tutoring. These recommendations include:

  • In-home tutoring – Rather than parents driving their child to a learning center, tutoring is done in a familiar learning environment, the students home, where distractions can be minimized.
  • Use of diagnostic tools – Our skill assessments in math and reading were developed by experts in the field of education.
  • Trained and qualified tutors – Our tutors are screened and tested to ensure their ability to teach the subjects assigned to them. Tutors are either credentialed teachers or specialists with college training in the subject.
  • Tutoring methods that engage the student in an active learning process – Our multisensory approach, engaging the students reading, writing and listening skills in unison ensures maximum learning outcomes.
  • Mentoring students on how to learn – We not only teach the subject matter, but how to become a more effective learner as a life-long skill.
  • Tracking session to session progress – We provide regular feedback to parents to ensure they can see the progress their child is making.
  • Use of continuous feedback – Students receive constant feedback so they know immediately how they are progressing..
  • Formal and informal assessment throughout tutoring – Students are consistently evaluated to ensure that they are building the foundation of concepts needed for long-term success.
