Tutoring 

The Schenck School Tutoring Program utilizes the same research based components as The Schenck School Reading Model.  Our tutors are trained in the diagnostic, prescriptive, direct and multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham Approach to help with phonemic awareness, encoding and decoding. 

Other areas of contextual reading can also be addressed in the session to assure reading success for your child.  Students experience a high degree of success and confidence with each lesson. Self-esteem develops from success, and learning becomes a positive experience for students.

Tutoring After-School

  • Sessions are 45-60 minutes in length, twice a week and are generally conducted at The Schenck School after regular school hours, Monday - Friday and occasionally on Saturdays. One formal parent/tutor conference per semester is included.  There is a $25 non-refundable application fee. 
  • When registering for tutoring, please know that you are registering for a semester of sessions. Scheduled sessions are agreed upon at the beginning of the semester for each tutor and family.  Semester charges are paid in full or in equal monthly installments.  The cost for each session is $100 + 3.75% processing/administrative fees. There is time set aside after each semester for up to two make-up sessions.  Payments will be prorated for families who start mid-semester.
