It's all too easy these days for students to fall behind in fundamental subjects, considering such issues as large class sizes, increased demands on teachers, and ever-expanding curricula. That's why a little extra help outside the regular school schedule can go an awfully long way toward bolstering students' skills, reinforcing classroom lessons, and halting minor study problems before they become major ones.
Parents can get extra help for their kids through the dedicated tutoring program of the Community Learning Center, a specialty service of Georgian Court University's School of Education that has recently been relocated to the Raymond Hall West building. Under the direction of Dr. Kathleen Froriep, assistant professor of education, the Community Learning Center offers personalized tutoring in:
- Language Arts
- Study Skills
- Comprehension Strategies
Indeed, all of the instructors are highly experienced certified public schoolteachers from area school districts, fully qualified to tutor K-12 students in the specified subjects. Participants receive the added benefits of parent conferences, individual needs assessment, observation sessions to analyze both effectiveness and possible learning disabilities, and appropriate recommendations and referrals as warranted. Because the Community Learning Center is a nonprofit facility, this expert-level instruction can be offered at the extremely reasonable fee of $25 per hour.
