How are you helping parents and students? Most of our students are keeping their similar tutoring schedule. We have added a different service within our Student Mastery Program.
Our Student Mastery coaches as well as some of our tutors spend 30 minutes each week with our students to organize, plan, and prioritize work. (See below) We also hold our students accountable for what works they should have done. Parents have been delighted that we can help out in this way as we are saving them countless battles with their children. Our students have expressed gratitude that they have a real person teaching them as they feel highly disconnected from the educational process. We are very happy that we can provide our parent and student clients help during this challenging time.
All of our staff have updated their online platforms, such as Zoom and Skype. We are offering our regular tutoring sessions online. Student Mastery Session: We have created a new tutoring session to provide general support for students at home. These sessions will address the more general challenges of creating a system to manage all classes and schedules.
These sessions can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour during which time the tutor checks in with the student and reviews material, asking questions that prompt review and overall understanding. Where there are multiple children in the home, our tutor can check in with each individually. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
We all need time to process the surreal impact of the Coronavirus. After we grapple with reconfiguring our daily lives, we will then be faced with the notion that “life goes on.” Parents will need to earn money and children will need to learn.
Most children will rejoice for as long as school is out! – but, soon enough, some/many will feel adrift. There is something about being unproductive that affects most everyone, including those seemingly uninterested teens.
More to the point, college admissions will presumably be on a normal cycle in the fall. SATs (ACTs/SAT IIs, APs etc.) will be rescheduled. And, as we have addressed elsewhere, students will – at some point – be expected to have mastered the material that they normally would be learning in school over the next two months.
We are a service organization with the mission to help young people reach their potential. Contact us if we can provide service to you and your children at anytime, but particularly during this challenging time.
