Tutoring Services

SUBJECT AREA TUTORING:

Through the Beck 5 Step Method, students usually improve their test performance consistently by a minimum of two letter grades from the grades they were receiving before receiving our instruction.

After providing and acquiring information from the student/parent through out the Free 30 minute phone consultation, a Beck College Prep tutor will implement the Beck 5 Step Method.

Step 1: Examine

During the student’s first tutorial session, the Beck College Prep tutor will request the student to do a series of problems in the subject area in which the student is having difficulty. In this 10-15 minute assessment, the tutor will be able to detect where the student’s key areas of deficiency lie.

Step 2: Target

We will use the results from the preliminary examination to group questions that will target the student’s deficiencies and advance their academic fundamentals.

Step 3: Instruct

The student will repetitively practice the new concepts so the ideas are adopted and the student has an accurate and proficient understanding of the subject. Once rudimentary mastery of the key concepts has been accomplished, we will apply the analytical and critical thinking skills needed to successfully make future academic connections. This process will build on the student’s newfound understanding. The goal of this session is to reduce frustration and increase confidence.

Step 4: Evaluate

The tutor will evaluate whether the student has grasped the concepts by testing the student with similar yet higher-level problems than those questions presented during the initial portion of the tutoring session.

Step 5: Communicate

At the end of the tutoring session, the tutor will inform the parent of what challenges the student may have, what has been done to resolve this matter, and any independent work that the student must complete for the next session.

Middle School & High School Counseling Services

Academic planning for college should begin as early as Middle School. Colleges and Universities look for well-rounded students that have challenged themselves academically through out High School. Beck College Counselors help students in Middle and High School create a challenging class schedule, which illustrates the student’s academic interest as well as acceptance of a rigorous curriculum. In addition, we assist students in creating appropriate community service projects and strategic plans to join the appropriate clubs and sport programs that play to the strengths and interests of the student.
