Q What method does Hope Tutoring use?

A This depends on the areas that a student needs assistance in & which method works best for each student.  In regard to reading, an approach of synthetic & analytical phonics is used depending on the needs of the student.

 

Q Do we tutor during the school holidays?

A Yes we do as this is often a good time for children to obtain some consolidated tutoring time, as long as your child has enough time to refresh & recuperate from school over the holidays.

 

Q Do we work with other professionals?

A Hope Tutoring often receives referrals from Educational Psychologists & other professionals.  We also work in conjunction with teachers from the student’s school so the student can build upon concepts that are taught at school.

 

Q How do we assess progress?

A From the beginning and right through the tutoring process we set both short and long-term goals, and monitor progress against these goals.

 

Q When does tutoring end?
