Our Signature Assessment Process

Why we use Assessments

Most tutoring and academic coaching companies use an assessment to determine what level program to start in.

 

We use our own uniquely designed assessment to create a customized intervention for your child.

 

We think of learning gaps like a sponge - Our assessment allows us to identify those holes in learning and fill them so your child can succeed academically long term. 

What Makes Our Assessment Different

We use a combination of standardized testing plus customized assessment to determine your students’ gaps in learning.

 

Because of the complexity of our assessments, they can only be conducted by experts in the educational field. We custom create these assessments to help your child fill in the gaps for long term learning.

 

This also allows us to measure academic growth over time, which also helps your child build confidence in their learning abilities.

How the Assessment Works

All of our students start with our signature assessment process, which allows us to identify exactly why your child is struggling academically. Through this assessment process, we get to the root, so that we can provide parents with specific recommendations for what to do next. 

Some parents choose to have their child work with us one on one afterwards, where as others take this information to DIY their student's academic progress. While some other tutors use testing for gradelevel placement, we are the only tutoring company that uses testing to identify exactly why your child is struggling - and we create a customized academic plan to help your child get reach their academic growth goals. 

In other words, others use testing to identify what grade level your student is at, whereas we use a specific kind of assessment to understand exactly why your child is at that level, and create a plan to help them achieve rapid academic growth.

Each assessment usually takes an hour to complete and is facilitated by our certified teachers, who are also making notes about your child's learning to provide the right recommendations and next steps. 

What Happens After The Assessment

After the assessment, our teem meets to discuss your child's results and what exact learning targets need to be addressed for your child to reach their growth goals.

 

Once we analyze the assessment and discuss a plan of action, we will speak with you again to discuss the assessment results and recommend which package the best fit based on your child's needs and goals. We will recommend what level of intervention is needed and what to focus on based on the results.

Most of our students begin working with us for 2 hours a week (virtually).

Once you choose your package, our staff then creates individualized lesson plans to work with your child and combine it with our academic coaching.

If you decide not to work with us in a 1:1 setting, that's ok too. We are able to direct you to resources and recommendations to help your child.

Assessment Pricing

We offer testing for reading and math (we also help students with writing, but we start with assessing their reading levels first, as reading level precedes writing level. 

We utililize a few different tools in both the reading and math assessments to identify learning gaps and specific academic needs. Some of these assessments cost money for us to access per child, which is one of the reasons we charge for our assessments.

 

We also pay the certified teacher that administers the assessment, and the assessment pricing also includes the time we meet to analyze the assessment results and observations and come up with the recommended next steps.
