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.
Tutoring is not just a job, it is an opportunity to motivate and guide students as they take on challenges and accomplish their goals. As a branch manager and successful tutor for over 7 years, I have discovered the importance of passing on knowledge with empathy and enthusiasm. I was a struggling student in high school, and it was not until I reached out to a tutor that I was able to overcome my challenges. Being able to understand both sides of the tutor/student relationship has provided me with valuable insights as a tutor and manager. Education is the key to moving forward and securing opportunities in our world. During my tenure at TutorWorks I have had the privilege of being a part of the success of many students. I want to help you or your child achieve success by providing the right tutor for your needs.
Currently I am attending USF – St. Petersburg as a master’s degree student in Environmental Science & Policy. This field is becoming of upmost importance and involves many disciplines of science. This involves some of my favorite subjects such as chemistry, mathematics, and biology.
