Why Are Structured Evaluations Important?
At Above Grade Level, we think that an efficient tutoring course really should begin with an accurate analysis of your student’s scholastic strengths and weaknesses. So, we deliver a thorough analysis developed by professors at the University of California, Berkeley that is keyed to State Standards for every grade level. This ensures that we can easily recognize the areas where your student may have missed vital skill-sets or needs specific attention. The educational program is structured to fill-in any gaps in previous learning so future effectiveness can be assured.
Compared to the evaluations offered by many other tutoring professionals, which they have developed on their own, the evaluation we utilize was actually created by professionals in the industry and is keyed to the State Standards that your child’s school follows at each grade level. This gives us a comprehensive view of how your daughter or son is performing in each of the subject areas that they will be expected to master in school.
This evaluation has a value of $150. We offer it free of cost so you can discover precisely where your child’s strengths and weaknesses are in areas like mathematics and reading. The evaluation takes around 30-45 minutes and is taken by your child online at a time which best meets your household routine.
