Creating a Successful Tutoring Program
Assessment involves a series of steps to determine the needs of the student. This includes a personal interview with the student and parents, as well as with teachers and other appropriate professionals. There is also a review of recent tests and other relevant work the student has completed. Students may also use testing materials specifically designed by Make the GrAde.
2. GOAL SETTING
A series of short, medium, and long-term goals are established. These goals may be multileveled and will be focused on results.
3. ESTABLISHMENT OF A SYLLABUS
Based on the assessment and goals, a syllabus will be established. Depending upon the amount of time committed to tutoring, this may be in the form of a monthly syllabus. Each tutoring session will have a specific theme or objective.
At appropriate intervals, progress will be measured by both quantitative and qualitative methods. A determination will be made in order to set new goals and new objectives. Evaluation cycles are generally monthly, but may occur at either more or less frequent intervals, depending upon the student’s rate of progress. Parents may request to receive a weekly evaluation, which will be sent via fax, phone, or email.
