So much more than tutoring: RISE One-to-One

There are numerous options when it comes to tutoring. However, if you have a student with learning differences like dyslexia or ADHD, the depth of support available in RISE One-to-One can make all the difference. (RISE = Research-informed Individualized Student Education).

RISE One-to-One Program Highlights 

Here are some key features and what you can expect in our one-to-one explicit instruction program. In your intake interview, our team will discuss how we can make this program work best for your child.

    • Foundational skills – literacy and/or math (often a focus from grades 1-5)
    • School skills executive function, self-regulation for learning, studying, homework and coursework (often a focus from grades 6-12).
  • Individualized. Expert instructors develop personalized learning plans (called a RISE Learning Plan). They draw from an extensive library of curricula and resources. These plans are based on student assessment, data and learning goals.  
  • Executive Function Skills. Students work on strategies to support executive function skills. They include working memory, attention, planning, and organization. Students use these skills for test preparation, note-taking, and studying.  
  • Technology. Instructors use educational and assistive technology and social robotics. They integrate them into sessions where appropriate.  
  • Case Managers. Every student is assigned to a case manager. The case manager supports students and families and coaches instructors. They will be your primary contact for questions, progress and reporting throughout the year.
