Tutoring Services and Experience
Standardized Academic Assessments – Using standardized testing tools (which provide families with age, grade and percentile rankings of their child’s academic performance in each subject area), an individual student profile is developed. The Academic Assessment process sets baselines for the student’s level of academic performance, learning style and personality dynamics. Knowing individual student strengths and area(s) of weakness better ensures their success. Students are re-assessed regularly to ensure progress and achievement. Results of all testing are reported to parents verbally and in writing.
Subject-specific Tutoring – We specialize in reading, writing, spelling, and math tutoring.
Grade 9 Math Test Preparation and Grade 10 Literacy Test Preparation – Along with the subject-specific skills that require development, students also learn the study skills and test preparation skills needed for test success. Students are presented with the practice testing materials that they will encounter in these required High School tests. Working and re-working test examples will allow the student to not only progress and learn, but also become familiar with the actual test format and structure, thereby alleviating tension and fear of the unknown.
Learning Skills and Strategies – eXL offers explicit instruction in study skills, test preparation, organization, time management, memory strategies, etc. A must for the student who shows a greater potential for learning than their report cards would indicate. Students with low personal motivation would also benefit from explicit instruction in this area.
Educational Consulting – Often, families need help through the sometimes overwhelming process of getting their children effective support in the public or separate school system. A knowledgeable and experienced member of the eXL team will attend an IPRC meeting, IEP/IPP review meeting or team meeting to re-evaluate or modify a student’s current curriculum. We also develop IEP/IPPs and provide programming support for students who are challenged in areas of academic development.
NOTE – If required, eXL Educators have access to in-house Speech & Language Pathologists and Behaviour Therapists to consult on and take part in Academic Assessments and tutoring sessions to better ensure the comprehensive care of each student.
