“Since learning differences run in my family, I knew that I needed to find the right interventions for my child quickly. Because of MAIA, we were able to develop and follow through with a plan that made a world of difference to my son, who not only enjoys going to school but also feels very confident about himself as a learner!”

Tutoring Services

How Our Tutoring Program Works

MAIA instructors are experts in teaching academic skills and concepts in specific subject areas.  Our master’s level hand selected teachers and learning specialists have a proven track record of success in teaching students prior to joining our team. Once on our team, they are trained to implement MAIA’s unique tutoring accountability system to monitor and advance their student’s learning development.  Tutorial support is offered in one or all of the following areas:

Enrichment

This option is ideal for students who benefit from additional review of materials taught and seek additional challenges to extend knowledge to another level of mastery.

Remediation

This option is ideal for students who have academic gaps in reading, writing and math skills. These skills are addressed with evidence based instruction so that the student can continue to master content required of a particular grade level.  Orton-Gillingham based programs are used including PAF, Wilson, Wilson Fundations, and Recipe for Reading.

Subject Tutoring

This option is ideal for students who need support with reviewing and understanding content.  Instructors clearly explain the subject matter utilizing strategies to help  with memorizing and analyzing information.

Standardized Test Preparation

This option is ideal for students who need short term review of content and test taking strategies.  We prepare students for standardized tests such as Common Core, Regents, ISEE, SSAT, SAT and ACT.

 

In addition to tutoring, we are also sought after for our executive function coaching to help our highly capable students with planning, time management, organization, and positive self-advocacy skills necessary for success in school and beyond.

Tutoring is also received by some students while undergoing school placement counseling with us.

  •   Student Assessment  >>

    Each learning plan is tailored to the individual student, based on a comprehensive assessment of strengths and weaknesses. We draw from a wealth of high quality educational materials and resources to develop an individual learning profile.

  •   Communication with Teachers, Parents, and Students  >>

    Our tutoring sessions are most effective when we all collaborate on the educational goals and implementation of plans. This partnership is especially valuable in determining specific areas or skills that parents or teachers want us to focus on, as well as encouraging their support and on-going involvement in these efforts.

    As the sessions proceed, we communicate with parents and teachers frequently to provide detailed updates on each student's progress.

  •   Team Approach to Establish an Action Plan >>

    Based on the initial assessments and our discussions with teachers and parents, we develop a plan of action that is structured to achieve the objectives agreed upon at the initial meeting.

  •   Excellent Tutors and Individualized Instruction  >>

    Each session is carefully planned so that students are meaningfully challenged and engaged in the learning experience. We select only the most capable and energetic tutors to work with our students. They are chosen not only for their professional experience, but also for their ability to connect with parents and students.
