Government Funded Group Tutoring

At The Academic Advantage, we strive to instill a love for learning in each and every one of our students, by providing them with the necessary skills that will help them succeed throughout their academic careers; especially in the areas of English Language Arts (including reading) and Mathematics.

Our proven track record of marked improvement shows that we consistently unlock each student's full potential by using instructional materials that address the student’s specific deficiencies according to specific state academic learning standards, and grade level expectations. Students participating in our program work in collaborative groups to achieve a supportive learning environment and increase participation and accountability. Lastly, our Government Funded Program is successful due to these several key program factors:

  • Curriculum that is aligned to state academic learning standards;
  • An established partnership between parents and school administrators to create effective after-school tutoring sessions at the student’s school.
  • A maximum group setting of 10:1
  • Tutoring sessions located at the student’s school
  • Highly qualified instructional staff
  • Flexibility and customization to all students’ needs including ELL and Special Education
  • Snacks – to provide students with energy and help them focus on their work

Curriculum and Assessment

The Academic Advantage program helps students build essential English Language Arts (including reading) and Math skills quickly and effectively. Aligned to state academic learning standards, our program is designed to meet each student at his/her grade level and serves as a true supplement to what is taught in the classroom.

Our curriculum and assessments are of high quality and researched-based designed to identify areas of weakness in our students and provide a full guided course of instruction for our tutors. Through our pre-assessments, we identify the learning needs of each student and develop an individualized learning plan for each one of them. This plan serves as a tool to guide instruction and measures student progress. These elements combined, with a supportive group learning environment, engage our students in the learning process and will provide them the skills needed to be successful!
