About our Services:

Tutoring - $40 per hour
We will discuss with the parents, or student, the student's specific areas of need and develop a plan to address these. With younger students, we will work on the specific literacy skills that the student is struggling with. We will use worksheets, activities and manipulatives that will develop the student's skills and independence. With older students, we will typically work on material that the student is studying in school, this way we are focussing on specific skills and concepts that the students are likely to see on day-to-day quizzes and tests. Intermediate and senior students are strongly encouraged to bring homework, assignments, and notes along with them to the tutoring sessions. Our focus is on student success in the classroom.

Official GED Practice Tests - $50
Adults looking for GED preparation can take the official GED practice tests. These tests are half the length of the actual GED test. There are six sections to the test: Social Studies, Language Arts - Writing, Language Arts - Reading, Science, Mathematics - Part I, and Mathematics - Part II. The total test time is approximately four hours, which can be completed in one or two sessions. Once the tests are completed, they will be graded and the client will be contacted the next day to discuss the results.
The GED practice tests are an excellent sample of the material that will appear on the official test. Clients can choose to come simply to write the practice tests and see where they stand, or they can choose to book additional tutoring sessions to work with the tutor on material that they found difficult on the practice tests. (Additional tutoring sessions are $40 per hour.)

College Level Mathematics - $40 per hour
Students taking college level mathematics courses can attend tutoring sessions focussed on assignment completion and test preparation. Students are encouraged to inform Melissa of the specific topics being studied ahead of time to ensure that the tutoring sessions are maximally beneficial to the student.

Miscellaneous Services - $40 per hour
These services include special project assistance (portfolios, etc), resumes, cover letters, and other miscellaneous tasks.
