At our educational development center, we conduct personal interviews with each student to learn what their needs and goals are. Whether a student needs to brush up on math skills to pass a college entrance exam or they need a better understanding of high school math courses, our interviews set the stage for all private tutoring.
Our diagnostic testing includes a set of questions that correlate with the objective needs of a particular course or segment of learning. The evaluation is unique for each student, and the goal is to determine what areas need the most improvement. A tutor that spends time on subjects and concepts that the student has already mastered is wasting your time and money. We want to target the areas that are most in need of improvement and mastery.
Our approach to testing helps us identify areas in need of slight improvement, mastery, and even remediation. Gathering data about the student is just a part of the overall process. Our experience and training allow us to analyze the results critically in conjunction with the parent and student. Through collaboration, we can give your student the tools they need to surpass all of their goals.
Analysis of Results
During the analysis of results, we review the diagnostic testing and begin to create a profile for the student to set forth what content needs to be discussed. We study how to teach the material best, so it is easy to comprehend for the individual student. We work closely with the student to get a feel for their learning habits—just because we have a good grasp of the material doesn’t necessarily mean the student is going to improve on their own. With a better understanding of the way a student learns, we can develop an approach that fits their learning style best.
