Experience Tutoring: We believe in learning as a process and that all students can reach their learning potential given the right environment, teaching strategies, and reinforcement. Sessions are developed based on initial performance assessments in specific areas of needs and customized to meet individual students' strengths and learning styles. Periodic and post assessments are scheduled into learning process to inform of growth, needs, and next steps in teaching and learning process to lead students to independence.
