Assessments

  • At Math ETC we are data-driven. All incoming students are required to take an assessment to determine strengths and weaknesses. The results are shared with parents in a conference and then used to construct a streamlined lesson plan for the tutorial sessions.
  • Assessments can be administered up to 2 times each school year, including the initial assessment.

Scheduling

  • Sessions are scheduled in 12, 18, or 24-hour packages per quarter (3 months). Parents can choose a month-to-month plan which will be assessed at a higher rate.
  • 2 The initial schedule agreed upon between Math ETC and the parent will be posted on the Parent Portal prior to class start.

Rescheduling

Reporting

  • Communication regarding the status and progress of students will be reported via student notes and emailed to the parents within 24 hours of students completing their session.
  • Detailed Progress Reports that give an overview of student’s growth and performance compared to the initial benchmarks will be provided every quarter by email.
  • To better serve all clients of Math ETC, instructors and staff are unable to speak with parents after every session as this would impede assistance to other clients. Parents are welcome to request a conference via their Parent Portal.
  • Any concerns must be discussed first with the Center Director by sending an email to [email protected] If an issue cannot be resolved in this manner, a phone call or meeting may be requested.
