How important is it to continue enrollment over the summer months? What about vacations?
Summer enrollment is a very important factor in your child's overall long-term success in our programs. Our research indicates that students who continue their sessions during the summer improve at a much faster rate than those who withdraw for summer vacation. We have compared students who stay and students who leave for the summer and have concluded that a leave of absence during the summer has a negative impact on your child's progress. If you need to take a week or two break for a vacation, we will definitely work around your schedule.
Why is One-To-One Instruction more effective than small group instruction?
Research indicates that One-To-One Instruction rapidly increases academic skills. The results of this empirical research indicate that One-To-One Instruction is superior to classroom, small group, or even one-on-one tutoring with your child's classroom teacher or home tutor. Your child will receive intense one-to-one instruction.
Why is my child having difficulty in school or not reaching their potential? We've tried everything!
The answer to that question varies from child to child, but we will have a better idea of why your child may be struggling or not reaching their potential after we have the results of the Diagnostic Assessment. Most children have difficulty in school because their academic skills are not at the level that they should be. Other children may have problems with concentration, confidence, study habits, motivation, or general test-taking skills. Regardless of why your child is having difficulty in school, The Springfield Tutoring Academy's intensive Reading, Math, and Writing Programs are individually designed to help your child achieve long-term academic success.
Can you help my child if he has ADD, ADHD, or other concentration problem?
YES! We are the only after-school learning center that has a unique system of delivery that helps children increase their concentration, attention span, and focus while strengthening their academic skills.
