SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
A large percentage of our clients come from referrals. Our long-term relationship with Fort Wayne Neurology, area pediatricians, and cognitive & behavioral professionals ensures that the children who need specialized services are being led to the place that is the right fit for them. We have gained the respect of principals, teachers, school counselors and administrators in our community, as they have witnessed their students make gains though our individualized methods.
I don’t know of any child yet who did not benefit from Specialty Tutoring. I thoroughly believe in it, (and) highly recommend it.
I just saw great success with my students who were involved in the program…you could see that growth follow right through into the classroom. This is a wonderful program, and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
I just want to say thank you for the service you provide to our community. It means a lot…to our patients and our families who come back very pleased and…show significant improvement as a result of being involved in your program.
I’m so thankful that you’ve always been able to take kids with mixed medical issues…And certainly all the families and kids who’ve come back to Fort Wayne Neurology have been really appreciative of all of the work that you’ve done.
From 2003 through 2012, our instructional staff worked with over 1000 students at designated Title 1 schools in six area school districts. As a respected provider of Indiana’s Supplemental Educational Services, we are proud of the quality programming and targeted lesson planning we insisted on using in order to improve student performance. The annual pre- and post-test data submitted showed marked improvement in many of these students’ Math and Reading scores.
In August of 2013, Specialty Tutoring began a four year commitment to an intensive tutoring program at the Boys and Girls Club of Fort Wayne, as a major active partner in a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant. This program has proven to be an awesome opportunity to offer our professional programs to children identified as being significantly at-risk because of academic struggles. It is a wonderful example of collaboration between agencies to successfully implement and carry out a quality program at an accessible and welcoming site.
Specialty Tutoring provides caring, professional tutors. These skills transcend into our children’s academic success and the increase in self-confidence. They truly invest in each child’s success.
Those that have been participating with (Specialty Tutoring) have gained tremendously in their reading skills…
All the tutors I’ve come in contact with really care about the children. They care about the job they’re doing to prepare them and getting them on to grade level… It’s a real, real benefit as a principal of a Title I school to know that there are companies out there who are not just out to make a quick buck, but who can really make a difference in a child’s life.
Students look forward to meeting your highly qualified teachers. You’ve done a great job training them to help fill in those gaps and make the children strong in their skills.”
Do you serve children in our community?
Could these children benefit from professional help with learning struggles which are undermining their confidence and motivation?
Does your agency have access to a space where children can learn in an accessible, safe, and structured environment?
Ask your agency to seek out and write a federal, state, or community grant, and include Specialty Tutoring’s professional services as a powerful part of your grant application. There are MANY children in our area schools functioning one or more grade levels below their current grade placement in reading, writing and math. Being a proficient reader, writer, and reasoner is CRITICAL to success in school and future employment.
We can help you make this effective argument: Improving a child’s attitude toward learning, by empowering them with effective learning tools, keeps kids in school and motivated to achieve to their true potential!
We have a time-tested framework already in place for implementing and administering a quality program, including:
- Instructional programs geared to grade-level curriculum standards
- Pre- and Post- and Progress testing to identify skill gaps and measure improvement
- Trained learning specialists who know how to engage with both students and parents
- Individualized learning plans for targeted and efficient use of session time
- Educational manipulatives to facilitate hands-on practice
