This program is tailored for students in grades K – 8. Our specialists communicate with your child’s teacher to support and practice skills to reinforce their learning in school. Our support builds essential skills that lead to fluent reading, writing, comprehension, and mathematics.
OUR APPROACH TO TUTORING
We get insight from your child’s current teacher to understand where they need support most.
Academic Boost Tutoring targets specific sub-skills your child needs to become fluent in literacy and math.
Our Academic Specialist assists your child with their homework, directly applying the skills they learn with us to their school work.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ACADEMIC TUTORING
Let’s discuss your child’s strengths and needs to determine if Academic Boost Tutoring is the right fit.
After consulting with your child’s educator(s), we build an individualized program to target the skills your child needs help building.
Your child will work with a tutor 1 to 3 times weekly to build skills leading to fluent reading and mathematics.
Academic Support Specialist
Hello everyone! I’m Serena, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this community. Originally from New York, I spent the first 27 years there, earning degrees in Early Childhood & Elementary Education and Psychology from Hofstra University.
While my educational background initially led me to traditional teaching, I soon realized my true calling extended beyond the classroom. Relocating to California in 2010, I explored various roles, including a marketing and sales director stint for a San Francisco chocolate company. However, the one-on-one impact of supporting children’s growth and development drew me back to my roots as a Special Education teacher and Academic Support Specialist.
An assessment of some sort helps determine which support is the right fit for your child. If you’ve already had an evaluation done elsewhere, let’s discuss whether it provides the information needed to help your child succeed.
The exact skills depend on what your child needs but may include foundational reading, writing, comprehension, and math skills.
Your academic specialist will connect with your child’s educator to get more information on their academic performance. From there, a customized plan will be developed for your child.
No, this service is not covered by insurance carriers. We do, however have packages of tutoring sessions available at a reduced rate.
