At A Better Grade Tutoring, we understand that each child learns in their own way and
our program is designed to accommodate all styles of learners. We pair students and
tutors based on a variety of criteria including but not limited to grade level, subject
area and sometimes location.
The direct instruction your student receives is individualized to meet their academic
needs. We recommend a minimum of three hours of one on one tutoring each week.
Anything less than that is generally ineffective. The more time your student spends
with their tutor the quicker they will gain greater understanding of the subject area.
Failing students may require a more intensive tutoring schedule.
The length of time your student will require tutoring varies based on their needs, their
abilities and how far they are behind. Studies show that a minimum of 22 hours of
instruction is needed to make gains in reading and math. Some students may need
tutoring services in one subject area while others need help in multiple areas.
If your child is having trouble in school catching the problem early may be key to their
academic success. We recommend that you speak with our program director or
regional managers to answer your questions in further detail. Call us at 866.936.ABGT
