Is your child struggling to become a confident reader? Or are you tired of epic homework battles with your child every evening? Whatever your reasoning to search for a tutor, help is on the way!
At Two Dogs Tutoring, my mission is to provide assessment-driven, individualized instruction for students Pre-K through 5th grade in order to build their skills and their confidence. I offer a variety of services to best meet the differing needs of students and their families.
Tutoring can be extremely beneficial for students that need additional support. The instruction and learning activities that I provide are based on your child’s academic needs and unique learning style. I offer tutoring for students Pre-K-5th grade in a variety of subject areas including math, reading, phonics, writing, spelling, test preparation, homework help, and study skills.
- Private Tutoring: One-on-one instruction completely customized to your child’s needs.
- Small Group Tutoring: Groups consist of 2-3 students and are organized by grade-level and/or skill. (scheduled based on availability)
- Virtual Online Tutoring: By utilizing the program Scribblar, tutoring sessions can be held online in the comfort of your own home.
How it Works
- Complete the Tutoring Interest Form, which gathers information on your specific tutoring needs.
- I will schedule an informational phone call to discuss your child’s academic strengths, areas for growth, and any teacher or parent recommendations.
- At this time, customized assessments may be recommended and scheduled to provide further insight into your child’s academic needs. This data is analyzed, along with any additional assessment data from school and/or parent or teacher recommendations, to create a Tutoring Action Plan (TAP).
- Once the assessments are complete, an in-person meeting will be scheduled to discuss the TAP, which consists of a detailed analysis of the assessment results, strengths, areas for growth, and a plan for instruction.
- Tutoring sessions will be scheduled based on student need and availability.
