How does our tutoring work?
Tutoring sessions last one-hour and take place at either FCP offices or a location convenient for both your child and tutor. For standardized test prep, students start by taking a full-length timed diagnostic test. The initial session is used to evaluate a student’s strengths and weaknesses and to establish a rapport between tutor and student. Based on this initial session, we put together a timeline and personalized game-plan. Students meet with their tutor once per week in the months leading up to their official tests. Importantly, students also periodically take full-length timed practice tests to build endurance, measure progress, and prepare for the actual testing experience.
Do you offer longer or extra tutoring sessions?
Yes! Sometimes parents want longer tutoring sessions, or more than one session per week, which is available upon request and agreement.
How does weekly academic tutoring work?
In many cases - especially after building a rapport through test prep - students request tutoring in academic subjects. Our tutor meets with your child on a weekly basis to help with homework and test review. Our tutors also help students develop strong organizational skills and effective study habits, with the goal of bolstering grades and test scores.
Why do you not require a contract when signing up?
We pride ourselves on the fact that we do not lock parents into long-term contracts. Why? Because we want students and parents to sign up with us (and refer us to friends and family) because you are absolutely thrilled with our level of expertise, support and results…not because you’re financially obligated due to signing your name to a long-term contract. We want our RESULTS to be the reason you sign up with us and stay with us.
