Accelerated Tutor Services

What Is it?
Accelerated Tutoring Services (ATS)
is designed to pair a skilled tutor with a student (online or in-person) as soon as possible in order to begin tutoring quickly. While this path may not offer the tutor interview process and curated activity lists found in our premium package, our staff are prepared to pair you with a great subject matter tutor upon receiving your request form. This service starts at $75/hour with specialized content areas such as secondary sciences, secondary math, AP, and IB tutoring starting at $85/hour.

Best For:

  • A student with immediate tutoring needs on a specific subject matter.
  • A student needing test prep or project assistance.
  • Specific task assistance like college essay review.

 

Premium Tutor Services

What Is it?
Premium Tutoring Services (PTS) is a more in-depth tutor matching process that involves a student and caregiver in-take process, tutor resume review, a meet-n-greet with your chosen tutor, and monthly progress reports. Premium tutoring is an additional $10/hour.

This process takes the time to learn what the students learning strengths are and match them with the tutor that best compliments those strengths.

Best For:
Premium Tutor Services is best for families seeking a long-term mentor that is hand-picked for your child based on our tried-and-true list of indicators and can benefit from a curated activity list to better hone the learning concepts. Students paired through the PTS often mention how they gained a mentor as well as a tutor.

 

Tutoring FAQs

How much does tutoring cost?

Tutoring is variable depending on the level of support and communication needed to reach success. For PreK-5th grade students, the cost is between $75-$85 per hour. For 6th-12th grade, the cost is between $75-$90 per hour. This includes all prep time by the tutor as well as the actual tutoring session.

Our baseline tutoring is online or in a shared classroom space. We do offer clients the option to receive tutoring in-home (within 10 miles of The Community Classroom) or in a private, neutral safe space, which is an additional $29/session. If in-home tutoring is requested outside of the 10-mile radius, we will work with the client and tutor to negotiate an additional fee.

Consider our premium tutor services for a more robust tutoring experience.

How long is a tutoring session?

Typically our tutoring sessions last one hour. However, for our PreK and some of our K students, we recommend starting with a thirty-minute session. Every child is different! We will adjust based on what your child needs.

Ultimately we work with you and adjust to what’s needed for the student. If a session needs to be longer than an hour, it certainly can be.

Are tutors available to help with homework?

Yes! We have highly skilled tutors with subject-level expertise that can help your student with specific subject matter content. Check out our Accelerated Tutor Matching Process to learn more.

What is the value in your tutors being certified teachers?

We believe strongly in the lifelong impact great teachers can have. With a certified teacher, you are not just matched with someone earning extra money to pay their StitchFix bill. You are ensuring that the person your child is spending time with is experienced, trained, and certified in the particular content area. Our tutors aren’t really tutors. They are teachers, who tutor. 

What does "personalized" tutoring mean?

When we use the phrase personalized, it means we develop tutoring practices based on your child’s particular interests, strengths,

and needs. It is tutors that are matched just for them and lessons that are crafted with your child in mind. 

An Example:
During an intake process, we learned one of our middle school clients loved the musical Hamilton. Her tutor used the information to not only build rapport but designed lessons and reading that involved songs and themes from the musical. 

What kind of tutoring does The Community Classroom offer?

We tutor all ages, subjects, grades, content, support for English language learning, support for learning differences. For the tutor matching process, we offer two options: Accelerated Tutoring and Premium Tutoring. Tutoring is offered online or in-classroom, with additional costs for in-home and private tutoring spaces.

We also offer academic coaching if your child needs help getting organized and motivated.

To learn more about our specific tutoring options, click here.

How will I know my child is making progress?

A learning session map is created for each student and is a document you have access to all the time. These session maps include lesson objectives, links to standards, and notes from the tutor/coach after every session.  We also send progress reports twice a year. 

What kind of support do The Community Classroom tutors have?

Our founder, Megan, has her doctorate in Education Leadership for Teaching and Administration. Megan applies those skills to work as a mini-principal, ensuring that lessons are standards-aligned, goals are being met, teachers are supported, and clients are happy. We also offer periodic training sessions for our staff for free so they can stay on top of the best teaching practices for online learning.

Will my child like working with their tutor?

We work hard to match tutors and students based on a set of proven indicators with a 100% success rate thus far.

If your child is not happy, send us an email with detailed information about what’s not working, and we’ll get to work on finding a better match.

Will I be able to communicate with the tutor directly?

Absolutely! After the matching process, Megan will ensure that contact information is exchanged. You will have access to your tutor’s phone number and email.

What if I'm not sure what service (tutoring or coaching) we may need?

No problem! We will help you figure it out. Schedule a discovery session with Megan (our founder) and she will listen to what you need and help you pinpoint the next steps.

To schedule a discovery session, simply visit our contact page and choose “Discovery Session” in the drop-down menu. Discovery sessions are free of charge.

Do you offer specialized tutoring for reading and dyslexia?

Yes! We have certified teachers with training in specialized reading programs such as Orton Gillingham and Wilson. We also have a Speech and Language Pathologist who specializes in tutoring for students with dyslexia.

Some Recent Reviews

After only three sessions, my child is noticeably more confident in their ability to do math! It's wonderful to see their anxiety, which was making learning so much harder, melt away. They are excited to go to tutoring (something I didn't expect) and even recently asked their teacher at school for help, which they wouldn't have done before. I had no idea how quickly things could change. I wish I'd have done this years ago!!Their tutor explains things in a warm, relaxed, accepting way in a... space that radiates the same qualities.My child adds: "Everyone was friendly! I like the space, the atmosphere and the accessible tools [manipulatives for explaining things].""I could understand things that didn't make sense at school."read more

We came to the Community Classroom looking for a tutor to help us homeschool our son on ELA and math and did not know what to expect. We have been blown away by the top notch tutors and personalized attention our son receives every time he enters the Classroom. One of the things we truly appreciated was the pre-work that was done to ensure that my son had the right tutor for his needs and the ongoing communication and tracking of his progress. They really do get my son and know how to get him... excited about learning and doing his best every single time. We highly recommend Megan and her group of tutors to any family looking for any type of academic support.read more

We sought out SAT tutoring for our high-school junior through The Community Classroom. Megan’s response was positive, timely and successful! Our son reports that his tutor is very helpful and setting him up with SAT skills. He enjoys his time with them and feels he is improving every week. Thank you to Megan and her team for offering this path to success!

My ninth grader worked with a Biology instructor (Carly) via zoom. Initially I was hoping for “in-person” tutoring and hesitant to agree to online sessions as he definitely had “zoom fatigue”. After learning about my child, the tutor that Megan suggested would be a good match was several states away so if we were to work with her, there was no option besides remote learning. I felt an immediate trust in Megan’s expertise, as she patiently listened to me about my child’s needs and learning... style, so we gave it a try. I am so glad we did!My child is not always an enthusiastic learner, but he never complained that it was a tutoring day. He said that the sessions were very helpful in clearing up any confusion or questions he might have as well as helping him to prepare for his end of year standardized test. His tutor, Carly, was engaging, patient and very knowledgeable in her content area. The most exciting change we noticed in our child was the obvious increase in confidence about his Biology class and the subject matter. We cannot put a price tag on that!We are very happy that we discovered the Community Classroom and will most certainly utilize these services again in the future. We cannot recommend them highly enough and think that the entire process well-organized and student-centered.read more

My daughter struggled academically during the Pandemic as I know so many students did. Her grades were not reflective of what she was capable of and her self confidence was at an all time low. I immediately felt we contacted the right place when Megan truly listened to all of my daughter’s needs and conveyed genuine concern for her overall well-being. She understood that remote tutoring would not be effective for my daughter and that it would be best in-person. She thought it may take a... few weeks to match her to a teacher who was willing to meet in person. It ended up only being a few days before she contacted us with the name and background of a tutor she felt would be a great fit. My daughter met with Tricia and they immediately made a great connection. They worked together to come up with a plan to catch up on her assignments in her classes and to work on improving her organizational and prioritizing skills.My daughter was in danger of failing several classes when we started at The Community Classroom. She ended up earning all A’s and B’s during her last quarter and she was no longer worried about having to participate in credit recovery over the summer. This allowed her to get her first summer job and her self-confidence has improved so much! I can’t thank Megan and Tricia enough for all they have done to help my daughter end her school year on such a positive note. I highly recommend The Community Classroom!read more

The Community Classroom is a gem in our community. My first-grade son needed a reading tutor, so I reached out to the CC and Megan was super responsive, professional, helpful, and clear in her communications. She quickly connected us with a wonderful tutor and my son is swiftly catching up to grade level—and he adores her. Wins all around. Very grateful this resource exists!

The Community Classroom has provided an education lifeline after months of learning at home due to Covid-19 remote school schedules. I wish I'd found Megan's web site sooner! I was impressed by the amount of information on the web site and the level of immediate guidance provided once I completed the online form. Megan met with us to understand my son's needs and offered immediate results finding a tutor for us. We found the perfect match for my son - who now loves writing thanks to... Megan and our tutor, Ann. I highly recommend The Community Classroom.read more

I absolutely love working for Megan at The Community Classroom! She is wonderful to work for because she is one of the most passionate and dedicated educators I've ever met, not to mention incredible communication. She takes the time to get to know the students and the tutors in order to make successful matches for everyone. I feel so lucky that I get to collaborate with her and the kiddos I tutor through The Community Classroom.

Megan and the Community Classroom have come to our rescue multiple times during the pandemic providing excellent teachers and tutors for our 6 year old and her peers. She helped us secure a short term teacher for a summer learning pod, a temporary one-on-one tutor for an extended school closure and more recently helped us secure a fantastic ongoing kindergarten tutor for our daughter, to provide enrichment above and beyond what she is currently getting from school. Every teacher has been an... instant fit. Our daughter looks forward to every session. She speaks up, challenges herself and laughs a lot. Throughout, Megan has been behind the scenes coordinating curriculum and logistics. It’s hard to imagine what we would have done without Megan and the Community Classroom during this challenging time! We anticipate working with her for many years to come and would recommend the Community Classroom to all families (and kids!)!read more

We have had the most amazing experience here; especially during virtual learning! My 1st grader has so much more confidence while reading, and jumps up for her time with “Miss Mary”. Communication has been so amazing, consistent, and thorough; both from our tutor Mary Phillips and Dr. Megan Allen. We have also enjoyed so many additional webinars, fun classes, and even live book readings with authors. Truly a caring and passionate team of educators!

Megan and the tutors at Tailored Learning have been a lifesaver during the challenges of Covid19 and remote learning. My student absolutely loves her math and ELA tutors and the support has been helped us not only get by, but thrive these last 5 months. We will continue to use Tailored Learning even after quarantine is over as the services have been invaluable!

When schooling went virtual this past year, I was at a loss of what to do to supplement my daughter's 1st grade education. Fortunately for us, Tailored Learning Supports For Families matched my daughter with math and language arts tutors. On the days she has her sessions with them, my daughter wakes up with a smile on her face, already looking forward to the enriching and engaging learning opportunities. We do not know what we would do without this business and its unique ability to pair... curated learning sessions and tutors with children. A must in this day and age!read more

Our second grader has been home doing E-learning for almost a full year now. Though this has been difficult in some ways, it has also given us the opportunity to see how he learns best and where we can support him more. We have so much time to be together unlike normal years that are filled with sports and school and work activities. The issue is, we are not teachers. We are parents that want to help and don’t really know what to do to fill in the gaps and support him best. I reached out to... Megan to see what my options were and was met with everything we were looking for and more. She interviewed me and then had a zoom meeting with my son to find out more about him and his interests. By knowing what questions to ask and how to get him to open up about his learning she was able to put together a custom plan just for our family. It is filled with games, books and activities perfect for him. There are options to increase the support through tutors or small groups. He is excited for the new things we are learning and my husband and I feel like we have the tools to help him.read more

My 10 year old, on the younger side in 5th grade, had always felt a bit behind in school, though she got good grades. Spring remote learning due to covid was an absolute disaster, with tears from her and me on a daily basis. I knew she needed someone to help her with school and gain some self confidence regarding academics--so important for a girl her age. Megan at Tailored Learning Supports really listened and took the time to identify the right tutor. My daughter instantly bonded with her... tutor, Tricia, and her expertise has helped identify gaps in understanding mathematical concepts I didn't even know were there. I am relieved and beyond grateful!read more

We were at a loss this summer on how to keep learning a priority at home for our six year-old while my spouse and I were both trying to work remotely. We ordered the curiosity crate and virtual enrichment one-on-one tutoring. What a saving grace! The curiosity crate was tailored to our daughter's interests and curiosities, and it even came with a list of additional activities, books, and learning fun that has kept her busy all summer. And the enrichment tutoring...Wow! Our daughter, who... consistently complains about anything math-related, has thrived with her play-based math tutor. She is having so much fun, she doesn't even realize she's learning! Tailored Learning Supports helped us get through a difficult transition-to-home learning style, and it aided our daughter to rediscover how fun and exciting curiosity-based learning is. We would highly recommend this company, its products, and its services!read more
