PMEC Tutoring Program
Our tutoring program is designed to empower students to become self-confident, independent, inquisitive thinkers and learners. Improving overall student success is the foundation of which this company was formed. Our tutors are well versed in the infrastructure of elementary education, phonics instruction, as well as strategies to improve students’ Reading Comprehension, Fluency, Vocabulary and Mathematical acquisition.
Pre-K through 5th Grade
Our Tutors work with students in grades PreK- 5th to provide academic support and strategic interventions through data-based instruction. These interventions will be based upon individual student needs. An initial assessment will be given to determine the student’s strengths and weaknesses, and benchmark assessments will be given throughout the year to determine student’s mastery in core content areas. Our tutors will consistently communicate with parents to discuss strategies the students’ can use at home as well as at school. Creating and building a team to assist in holding your child accountable for his/her learning is key, and our tutors will do just that!
