How Online Tutoring Works

  • Students begin with a placement test which automatically assigns them to an Individualized Training Program
  • This Individualized Training Program is based on their achievement from the placement test in relation to their grade
  • The online tutoring adjusts students during training either by accelerating or reviewing material as needed
  • The program assigns a number of modules to work on
  • Each module consists of a tutorial, then practice, followed by training
  • The students move on to a new module when mastery is demonstrated
  • The teacher can assign the student to take tests at any time throughout their training
  • Students work at their own pace  (i.e., number of sessions per week, time on task during each session etc.)
  • Students can participate in online tutoring from any computer on any day of the week, at any time, or with unlimited sessions and time on task per week
  • Progress is personally monitored by an Academic Potential teacher
