What is the role of our leadership team?
Our leadership team works directly with families and schools to develop, manage, and monitor customized programs. They connect families and schools with expert resources within My Learning Springboard and beyond and collaborate with other professionals involved in supporting a student and/or family.
What should I expect when I initially contact My Learning Springboard?
We will schedule a complimentary, 30-minute consultation by phone with a member of our Leadership Team to learn more about your goals as well as gather an educational history. This initial consultation allows us to match students and families with appropriate experts and to inform a customized plan.
How will I choose the right tutor for my child?
Our leadership team facilitates the selection process. Parents can begin to identify potential tutors using the search tool (Tutor and Specialist Finder) on our website. We present families with options based on parent and student input about subject matter, grade level, learning style preferences, special needs, gender preferences, scheduling parameters, and tutoring location.
How does My Learning Springboard hire its tutors?
Tutors are sourced from universities, K-12 schools, and our network of educational professionals. We seek tutors with prior teaching experience and a track record of success. Our educators are highly qualified teachers and most hold advanced degrees and certifications. The application process includes in-person interviews with our leadership team and a thorough screening.
How will I know if my child is making progress?
We track progress in a variety of ways, including tutors’ anecdotal notes and informal assessments, classroom teacher feedback, student performance on schoolwork, assessments, and standardized tests, and parent and student feedback. As part of our holistic view of education and success, we are concerned with a child’s social and emotional development and, therefore, also carefully monitor a student’s motivation, confidence, and independence. Educational coordinators are deeply involved with each case and work with tutors and colleagues to monitor instruction and student progress. Parents maintain decision-making about shared communication with outside professionals and schools.
Where will the tutoring sessions take place?
Tutoring sessions generally take place in students’ homes. In some cases, particularly for adult learners, sessions take place at a public location, such as a cafe, library, or bookstore. A few of our tutors maintain office spaces or art studios. Practice standardized tests can be scheduled to take place in classrooms or office spaces.
How long is a session?
A typical tutoring session is an hour and includes debriefing with parents. Test preparation sessions are typically 1.5-2 hours. Sessions can be extended or scheduled for longer blocks in which case the session is prorated to the quarter hour.
How often do tutors meet with students?
The frequency of sessions depends on a student’s individual needs and learning goals. We may work with students anywhere from once a week to daily.
What is the session rate?
Families purchase packages of instructional time. Session rates vary depending on the tutor and are priced competitively with other tutoring services and educational practitioners.
Is there a cancellation policy?
My Learning Springboard asks families to respect our 24-hour cancellation policy. Sessions cancelled less than 24-hours in advance will be billed in full.
