Tutoring program is a program comprised of balanced literacy grounded in foundational reading skills. One on one instruction closes the academic achievement gap through learning critical thinking skills, reading strategies, fluency, decoding and comprehension, reinforced phonics skills through structured practice. Students needs are met through differentiated instruction. We also strengthen the home/school connection by supporting their current academic learning environment.
As a parent whose child received tutoring services from Ms. Schaeffer, I can only say she is a phenomenal tutor. She uses different techniques to meet the learning needs of individual to ensure positive results. The results for my child has lead to academic success.

My daughter was struggling in math and reading. Ms. Schaeffer has a gift of teaching. La’Shondra would attend tutoring three days a week and would be excited about everything she learned. She has maintained a B average. One thing I really liked about the program is Ms. Schaeffer has always went over and beyond to help my daughter and if she still needs any help she has always let me know that she will be there for her.

I have tried other tutoring services for my daughter and I really wasn’t satisfied because we both felt that the actual tutoring wasn’t helping her with her day to day schoolwork. With Local Motions tutoring, her tutoring is customized to her actual school work. I have noticed more confidence with my daughter and less frustration when completing homework because she knows she can get that extra help through her sessions or just send her tutor an email and he assists her via email. Her grades and writing skills have improved and now she’s the proactive one to go to tutoring because she sees the benefits.
