What Sets Us Apart?
- We avoid archaic ways of tutoring (such as using the same textbook for all students or having college-students as tutors.)
- Students do best when their tutor is a teacher who understands their student, how they learn best and how to teach so that they gain long-standing mastery of strategies, and the material, as they build stamina and timing — all essential to the success of the standardized testing experience.
- Our philosophy is to understand the student and their goals and to create a support program that fits their instructional needs precisely.
- We do particularly well with students who need individualized approaches due to learning differences, anxiety, or inexperience with standardized test taking.
- We deliver desired testing scores in a way that fits the student.
The Mindprint Assessment is a 45-minute computer-based assessment taken at home that tells us about a student’s reasoning, processing, memory and executive functioning. Results of the Mindprint helps us provide test prep that fits the student’s learning profile. Students can also use the results to help them with their studying.
The mock test allows us to learn what a student already knows and informs the instruction so that the student and the tutor are working together in the most efficient way. Mock tests also help students to build stamina and work on timing. We offer both paper and computer based mock exams.
Matching with a Tutor
Our tutors not only have a strong understanding of the exams, but they are also educators who teach and help your child to learn during each lesson.
Tutors help organize homework and practice in the manner your child learns best — sometimes this means providing specific assignments using a mode that fits your child’s learning style such as visual or auditory preferences; other times it means providing your child with specific schedules and checklists to ensure the practice gets done.
Your child’s tutor fully owns the test preparation program. No one is managing their instruction or lesson plans. They are educators, so they fully assess, plan and teach with autonomy using their training and expertise. Often this same tutor available for ongoing subject-area tutoring and future test preparation such as ACT or SAT.
Evolved Education tutors are all supported through our program, The Teaching School, where they receive ongoing professional development and support, ensuring that your investment in their work is contemporary and effective.
Monitoring your Student’s Progress
Our Head of Tutoring, Becky Reback, connects with you and your child’s tutor to ensure your goals are being met. She strategizes with you to solve any problems that may come up — such as your child being overwhelmed with the high school admissions process, struggling to study for the exam while also studying for classes in school, having trouble studying or making gains with points. We are fully committed to working with you through the process so that it is successful!
The WAY is the WIN & the OUTCOME is the WIN — we are committed to helping you have great outcomes, but also a process that feels good and works for your child and family.
We encourage families to have multiple mock tests throughout the process as they inform progress and the tutoring program. We discuss these results with you as needed and strategize with your child’s tutor to ensure that we are using time well.
