IvyGoal Education Introduction
ivyGOAL’s individualized tutoring is the best educational support any child can have. In a way, the point of focused tutoring is to fill the gaps in your child's knowledge base. How do gaps happen in your child's education? Many factors can cause challenges. Home stresses such as a move, changing schools, parental job loss, or divorce can cause disruptions. Language barriers can delay comprehension. Societal biases tend to discourage girls and minorities from even trying to understand some subjects. And schools, while well-meaning, often proceed to the next concept, whether your child has grasped the current concept or not. The practice, practice, practice mentality has fallen out of favor, so if your child misses the premise, they can be left behind.
Students have a hard time making progress once they have gaps in their lower-level skills. It is important to identify what each student needs to learn and teach accordingly. ivyGOAL’s personalized tutoring program is designed to strengthen your child's skills. We recommend our enrichment programs to then keep them on track. Kids in Kindergarten through 12th-grade benefit from the attention and close supervision of personalized tutoring. We develop a customized teaching program for each student based on your child's initial assessment. This program includes assigned homework practice, which students need to complete at home. Our tutors will review, teach, and assign new materials based on each student’s progress. Parents are updated on their student’s progress daily.
