  • STEP 2: CONTACT

    A friendly and professional tutor will contact you to learn about your, or your student’s, background learning objectives and to schedule a first session.

  • STEP 3: BEGIN

    First session takes place. Many students need an ally to encourage success. A primary objective of the first tutoring session is to make the student feel comfortable, and assure them that the tutor is their ally. Every first tutoring session integrates a hands-on assessment of the student’s strengths and areas for improvement. During the first session the tutor and student will get to know one another, set goals, complete preliminary assessments including Learning Styles and Reading Level and determine areas for improvement/focus. The tutor will also investigate perceived weaknesses in the classroom, begin to evaluate the need for coaching in foundational academic skills, and recommend schedule for additional sessions.

  • STEP 4: PLAN

    Before the next scheduled tutoring session, the tutor will develop an individualized plan for building the student’s confidence and competency in their subject areas. Click to learn more about LMI's learning philosophy.

  • STEP 5: CONNECT

    Within one week, with the permission of the student and/or parent/guardian, the tutor will contact the student’s teachers to establish open communication channels, gather curriculum to support teacher objectives and seek insights on perceived weaknesses and challenges.

  • STEP 6: SUCCESS

    Within the first month of tutoring you can expect to see a strong rapport developed between the tutor and the student. The student will be encouraged about learning, operating with a higher level of organization, and beginning to see personal and academic successes.

  • STEP 7: CONFIDENCE

    By the end of the semester students can be expected to be much more confident in their abilities and achieve a much higher level of success including:

    • Ownership of education
    • Fewer dropped assignments
    • Better class engagement and participation
    • Fewer homework battles
    • Higher grades
    • Improved self-confidence
