The POTENTIALS Assessment
The first (and most important) step in our process is for us to identify your child’s current academic level. This gives us a starting point so we can design an appropriate program and track your child’s progress. This assessment also highlights your child’s strengths and needs, or “skill gaps.”
Once POTENTIALS has identified your child’s difficulties, our tutors create a plan for an individualized program. At POTENTIALS, we acknowledge that each student learns differently, and we customize our program to assess their unique goals and learning style.
At POTENTIALS, we understand the need for flexibility for today’s busy families. Although our tutoring schedules are pre-arranged, they are not absolute and immovable, for as long as reasonable time is provided for adjustments.
Parent-Tutor Conference and Updates
At the start and at any point during the tutoring period, tutors make sure that they give parents and guardians feedback and updates on how the child’s performance and improvement. If it is not possible for the parents to visit us, tutors make sure they include notes and feedback on the children’s POTENTIALS notebook they bring home to their parents. We encourage parents to continually communicate with our tutors about their concerns and goals for their children.
POTENTIALS tutorial services are being provided by teachers that are experienced and who love to learn and teach. Every POTENTIALS tutor is dedicated to achieving the individual learning needs and goals of your child.
At POTENTIALS, we encourage students to ask ALL their questions. Individual attention ensures your child will have his/her questions and needs addressed quickly. Each student has both immediate access to the tutor and the opportunity to work independently. This independence boosts confidence, while personal attention from POTENTIALS’ committed and supportive tutors helps your child become prepared, knowledgeable and confident.
