Different Students 

Require Different

Approaches to Learning

Students have different learning styles. This fact makes it almost impossible for a classroom teacher to be effective given a classroom size of 20 to 40 students. Differentiating instruction may mean teaching the same material to all students using a variety of instructional strategies, or it may require the teacher to deliver lessons at varying levels of difficulty based on the ability of each student. Under either scenario, some students are left out throughout the teaching process.

Effective Tutoring Sessions Based On Proven Research

Rigorous evaluations of tutoring programs reported positive results for programs whose tutoring sessions ran from 10 to 60 minutes in length, although longer sessions did not necessarily result in better outcomes. [Brailsford, A. (1991). Paired Reading: Positive reading practice. Kelowna, British Columbia: Filmwest Associates 1991; Warger, 1991; Robledo, 1990; Jenkins & Jenkins, 19851

Tutoring programs in which tutors met with tutees at least three times a week were more likely to generate positive achievement for tutees than programs in which tutors and tutees met twice a week. [Reisner, Petry, & Armitage, 19901

Education or Lack Thereof is
a Primary Driver of Poverty

"Race, education, marital status, and age make a huge difference in terms of who is more or less likely to experience poverty in the years ahead," Rank said. "For example, the five-year risk of poverty for an American between the ages of 45-49, who is white, married, and with an education beyond high school, is 5 percent.

In contrast, Rank said, the risk of poverty for an individual between the ages of 25-29, who is nonwhite, not married, and with an education of high school or less, is a whopping 72 percent."

Individualized, 

Customized Learning 

Plans

One-on-one tutoring eliminates these problems as it provides our e-Scholar (teacher) with the opportunity to cater to the student's pace, learning style and level of understanding with immediate feedback and correction. In that environment, basic misunderstandings are quickly identified and corrected and more difficult material may be introduced thereby maximizing the learning experience. Oftentimes e-Scholars see students gaining confidence and improving at quicker paces than previously imagined because of this process. 

Tutoring Eases Dropout
Rates

Tutoring is recommended as one of several possible ways to help keep students in school. [1]

Every year, over 1.2 million students drop out of high school in the United States alone. That’s a student every 26 seconds – or 7,000 a day. [2]

The U.S., which had some of the highest graduation rates of any developed country, now ranks 22nd out of 27 developed countries. [3]

Poverty Can Predict a Child's Life Outcome

"Poverty is a powerful predictor of a child’s life outcomes. Specifically, child poverty is a strong indicator of adult poverty, especially among children born into poverty or those who experience prolonged poverty in the early years.

....Family structure has a substantial bearing on a child’s future. Trends point to the rise of single-parent households, especially single-mothers. Due to limited resources, children from single-parent households tend to fare worse than children from two-parent households. These children are significantly more likely to experience poverty and family instability, factors that have been known to affect a child’s cognitive development and thus threaten the lifelong learning that can move children out of poverty."

"Local tutors worry months-long gap out of the classroom will impact vulnerable students"
 

TAMPA, Fla. — On Saturday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced schools would remain closed through the rest of the school year.

The question many parents are asking is how will this impact their child's studies and how can they keep them engaged.

 

"Many Schools Are Not Providing Any Instruction Amid Closures"
 

Coronavirus shuttered schools and administrators are still trying to figure out how to educate millions of kids. 

"Only 10% across the board are providing any kind of real curriculum and instruction program, which is a little alarming given most of the experts are projecting we're going to be in this mess for quite some time," she says. "I don't mean to pass judgement here. This is a hard, hard problem, but clearly we're seeing a lot of variation."

"Students and teachers struggle with remote education due to coronavirus"
 

In one Twitter thread in April, Rose Casey, assistant professor of English at West Virginia University and a single parent of younger children who are now also learning at home, shared this: “Okay. I actually cannot do this. I simply cannot teach while parenting 24/7 entirely on my own. Genuine question: what should employers, specifically universities, be doing to mitigate these literally impossible demands?" she asks.

 

"As Schools Plan for Reopening, Worried Teachers Say They Have More Questions Than Answers"
 

Across the country, schools are planning a return to at least some in-person instruction in the fall—but teachers say they still have many unanswered questions about how it will all work.  If a teacher is exposed to someone with COVID-19, will they have to use their sick days to self-quarantine for two weeks?

     Every session my daughter learned something new. I was impressed with how excited she became about learning. I never would have imagined her looking forward to learning and taking a science test, but that is exactly what happened once I booked sessions with e-Scholars. Her confidence in science is through the roof!

     My daughter learned so much from using e-Scholars. Her tutor was a true professional and believed in her when very few in her life did. Now she is in the army and flourishing. I will always be grateful for my decision of hiring e-Scholars. My daughter told me that she will forever cherish her moments working with such a great educator!
