Frequently Asked Questions

How does a first session work? 

At the first session, one of our exceptional tutors will give an assessment that is created by Dr. Marcine Adams-Neuman, Ph.D, owner, and tailored to fit your students’ needs. The tutor and Marcine will then review the assessment and see what their needs are and create a learning plan.

How long is a session and what occurs?

A session is 60 minutes long and is broken down into sections.

Check-in: 5 minutes

Game: 5-10 minutes

Guided Lesson: 30-40 minutes

Independent Practice: 5-10 minutes

How does your instruction relate to the child’s school curriculum?

During sessions here at How About Learning, tutors are trained to use worksheets and curriculums that correlate to the material being used within their school district. As each district chooses their own material Marcine and her tutors use their knowledge and experience to find material within the same scope and sequence, as well as, key concepts and practices. This helps our students to make sure the same strategies are taught and mastered to be able to use them them in the classroom.

What form of payment is accepted? 

We take cash, check, or electronic payment. Electronic payment handles are provided on the first day. All payments are due at the end of the session.

Do we have to come to the same session time each week? 

Yes, consistency is key. All our tutors have specific weekly time slots for clients to choose from. We expect clients to choose a slot for a season term; these include fall, winter, spring, and summer.

Are you closed the same day my student may not have school?

Our teachers tutor every day of the week and it is up to the tutor and client to communicate on days when holidays fall on scheduled sessions. We do not follow the academic calendar in terms of days off.
