Academic Screening

Academic Screening: An academic screening is available for students to determine overall functioning in reading, math, and written language. This assessment provides insight into the academic performance of the student and indicates the areas of strengths and weaknesses the student displays.

For those students who are struggling in one or more academic areas, the screening defines the nature of the problem and determines whether the student is "at risk" for future learning problems. It is also an indicator whether a more comprehensive evaluation is necessary.

Our Orton Gillingham-certified teachers will identify and remediate your child’s particular area of weakness, through targeted multisensory, structured, sequential and research based-instruction.

"I was a tutoring and college counseling client of Expert Tutoring from 2008-2011 during my time in high school, and my family and I couldn’t be happier with my experience!   They are pros at what they do and created a custom tutoring and college selection plan for me tailored to my academic achievements and personal interests.  They even guided me through my decision to transfer from a parochial high school to a public high school and helped to make it a smooth transition.  I am now an honors graduate of New York University, and work in Shanghai / Hong Kong as -- guess what -- a boarding school / university admissions consultant!  Who knew that my top-tier experience at Expert would turn me on to a future career.  No one is better!"
