When you call Little Scholars to inquire about out tutoring sessions you will learn what sets us apart from the teacher down the street or the “big box” tutoring retailer. Our staff collects all the information possible to ensure we find the best match for your child. Our highly trained and experienced teachers begin by assessing how your child learns best so we can create lessons and strategies to most effectively meet your child’s specific needs. After approximately three sessions we develop “benchmarks” and a plan of action. These benchmarks and the plan of action detail the areas we will be focusing on during our sessions with your child. This comprehensive plan integrates our assessment results and feedback from the classroom teacher and family so your child can reach his peak educational performance. After each session, written feedback is provided by our teacher. We attend parent-teacher conferences and serve as an advocate for your child and their education as well as a support system for you at your request.
Our teachers are different! They are the best of the best! Our teachers give your child a fresh and energetic mind because they have not been in a classroom setting all day or in a cubical with a variety of other children. Little Scholars teachers provide you with an unbiased approach and optimistic attitude. We do not put a band-aid on the problem by giving your child a program that is generic. Little Scholars believes each child is different. What works for one child may not work for another. We pull multiple approaches and curriculums together to best meet the needs of your child. We are constantly analyzing our approach to best meet your child’s needs.
Our approach has been especially successful because we are professionals who follow developmentally appropriate practices and are committed to knowing the children we teach by creating experiences that will peak their interest and reach how they learn most effectively.
Because children do not always work well with their parents, we also offer our help to children to get through homework assignments and turn that from a tedious daily chore into a fun learning experience.
