MEK Review’s School Support Tutoring
Did you know that college admissions officers cite GPA as the most important factor in a prospective student’s college application package? Unfortunately, the transition back to in-person classes during the ongoing pandemic has been difficult for most students. And the struggle to regain classroom confidence and study skills has caused many students’ GPAs to plummet.
What is School Support Tutoring?
MEK’s School Support Tutoring is the perfect one-on-one tutoring program for students having difficulty in the school classroom but are aiming to excel. Expert instructors give students strong foundational skills, reinforcement exercises to retain concepts, and a professionally proctored Independent Study Hall, as needed. For School Support Tutoring, we suggest a minimum of 5 sessions for students to really see the benefits of working one-on-one with their instructor.
Why MEK School Support Tutoring?
School Support Tutoring is all about classroom success.
Our tutors, along with administrators and counselors, work closely with students to pinpoint areas of academic weakness and provide the support that students need to make that weakness a strength. By discussing a student’s individual needs and reviewing their course syllabus and assignments, we are able to create a customized plan to help them reach their goals.
MEK’s School Support Tutoring gives students the tools to make constant progress and maintain it. After all, the most important part in any learning progress is maintenance.
How to Get Started
Step 1: Inquiry
The first step to getting started with any of our programs is to contact us. Fill out the Inquiry Form and specify in the box labeled “Tell us how we can help you” that you are interested in School Support Tutoring! You can also email us directly or call us at 855-346-1410.
Step 2: Student Assessment
If you are interested in School Support Tutoring, you will schedule a consultation with one of our expert academic counselors. You will be asked to provide the following materials before the consultation so our academic counselors can plan accordingly:
- School transcript
- Report cards or print-outs of your grade management portal (i.e. PowerSchool, Genesis, Skyward) are sufficient if you do not have access to your transcript!
- A clear idea of your academic goals!
Step 3 & 4: Individualized Tutoring Plan & Scheduling
Based on the information given and the goals discussed during the consultation, our academic counselors will design your Individualized Tutoring Plan with personalized milestones. These milestones will give light to the number and frequency of sessions, any specific weekly goals or performance indicators, and regular Simulation Tests and/or Independent Study Hall times as needed.
Independent Study Hall
Not all tutoring students are prescribed Independent Study Hall. However, it has proved helpful in giving students a structured time to complete assessments and assignments to reinforce their learning in the tutoring session. During Independent Study Hall, you will log into a Zoom meeting, where a proctor is waiting for you. The proctor will make sure that you are completing the work that your tutor has assigned, within the time that they specified. The proctor will also be available to answer any logistical questions you may have about your tutoring session.
Virtual vs. In-Person Tutoring
MEK offers two methods of tutoring for School Support Tutoring: virtual and in-person. Our virtual tutoring sessions are hosted on Zoom and facilitated by Canvas so that students can meet with their tutors in live sessions and communicate with them between sessions as needed.
Our in-person tutoring sessions take place at our Closter campus, where our Tutoring Suites are designed so that students and tutors can be in physical and visual proximity without physical exposure. The in-person tutoring sessions allow students to be more engaged in an environment that is not limited to the four walls of the computer screen.
