Frequently Asked Questions

1. What can a learning center offer that most private tutors can’t give your child?

 

A quality learning center is not simply a tutoring service; rather, it offers a great deal more. At KQLC, teachers are credentialed and experienced to provide the best academic support. Individualized support is key, which is why we work together to understand your child’s’ needs and create a customized plan from the beginning.


 2. Is a 3:1 ratio better for my child than 1:1?

Years of experience have shown that a 3:1 ratio is an optimum ratio for most students in the learning environment. In contrast, a 3:1 ratio allows each child to get as much 1:1 attention as needed, but also encourages independence, so the child can transfer new skills learned to the classroom setting.


3. Are parents and teachers actively involved in the process?

Yes, we offer parent conferences every 15th session. With permission, the center staff can share a child’s test results and solicit the classroom teacher’s input. This communication creates a triangle between school, home, and the learning center. 


4. What results should you expect?

By monitoring achievement through regular progress testing, tutorial services like KnowledgeQuest Learning Center often see an average growth of two grade levels in reading, math, and writing after six months of instruction. Magic? Not really. Progress is possible when skill-specific programs are taught with a variety of methods by experienced staff.


5. Does the center have experience with working with children with ADD/ ADHD or other learning disabilities?
Yes, the best approach is not to label, but to determine how to address the needs of each child. Children with learning difficulties need a program that uses multi-sensory approaches, emphasizes strong reinforcement, provides individual attention, and nurtures the development of self confidence.


6. What is the value of supplemental education?
The cost of supplemental education may seem high, but not getting help might be more costly in the long run. Parents can view supplementary education as an investment in their child’s future. That investment could last a lifetime.
