MESSAGE FROM OUR TUTORING MANAGER
TUTORWORKS believes in utilizing a blended learning approach which combines personalized instruction from highly qualified instructors and the use of a variety of educational and digital tools. This blended approach accelerates learning and allows for the achievement of remarkable results!
We begin an individual's personalized program by assessing current learning levels and identifying strengths and weaknesses. This allows us to pinpoint where to start and determine the right program in order to achieve the best results.
Designing the Learning Modules
We utilize assessment results to design and customize learning modules which identify specific achievement goals and skills that must be mastered in the way that the individual learns most effectively. Each learning module is catered to individual needs and can be adjusted as the goals are mastered.
We utilize a blended teaching approach. Our highly qualified instructors provide structured learning programs tailored to the individuals and bring in necessary educational and digital tools like computing devices or additional kinesthetic material to enhance the overall learning experience. Our instructors lead interactive and adaptive lessons to create more productive and enjoyable sessions.
We measure the progress during each lesson with invisible assessments and daily verbal reports. An extensive evaluation of student progress is conducted in benchmarks and finally at the end of the program. Comprehensive detailed progress reports are also provided. TUTORWORKS' demonstrated record of effectiveness prove that all of our programs are designed to deliver remarkable results.
In my extensive years of providing academic support to youth of all ages, I’ve found student engagement and parent involvement to be two of the most significant factors in student achievement. To promote both student engagement and parent involvement in our programs, I strive to provide our students with a healthy learning environment that is nurturing, innovative, collaborative, and highly kinesthetic while empowering the parents to become better advocates for their children. Building strong and active partnerships with our families and schools allow me to create an environment that encourages intellectual curiosity and help students develop the skills necessary for sustained critical thinking. A motivational and engaging educational experience provides students with a perfect balance of both challenging and enriching activities which ultimately extend their academic abilities. I share TUTORWORKS’ commitment to developing and implementing programs designed to take students on a journey of transformational learning which not only help them master core academic skills but also create experiences that help them pursue mastery in other life endeavors. Join the TUTORWORKS team and me as we take you on the journey to mastery!
