SOAR begins with a free initial consultation with Sandy Reckles, head of the SOAR program. Parents and child will have the opportunity to articulate their expectations and pose any questions they may have. Additionally, we strongly encourage beginning with diagnostic testing materials so that the child’s cognitive strengths and difficulties can be objectively measured and assessed. Based on this consultation we identify program goals, develop customized curriculum benchmarks, and match the best tutor for your child.
The SOAR curriculum proceeds in one-on-one tutoring sessions that can be flexibly programmed to accommodate your scheduling needs. We typically encourage 45-minute sessions for students ages 4 or above and 30-minute sessions for students younger than 4. We offer immersive 5- and 10-session programs, as well as programs that are more adaptable in structure and provide enrichment and support over a longer period of time. Throughout the program, tutor and parent continue to collaborate to determine the best course. There is no minimum commitment, and plans can be adjusted at any time depending on the student’s evolving needs and goals.
