Existing tutoring businesses demonstrate little foresight in their services as they tend to simply assist students with their homework or cram for an upcoming test. Teaching revolves around explaining what a student did wrong and assisting in solving specific problems. This approach leaves the student severely lacking in understanding fundamental concepts and highly dependant upon the tutor. Students are taught to solely think through processes and are unable to critically think to adapt to problems that ask the same concept disguised behind a different presentation.
Eden Learning has created a highly detailed and planned out curriculum directly attached to Georgia Education Standards for all high-school level subjects. This enables Eden to provide detailed and comprehensive consultations for each student’s personal needs. Our teaching puts the student in control and our tutors are more comparable to a personal teacher. The shift of focus from assistance to planned out teaching empowers students to solve the most difficult problems no matter how they are presented.
Traditional tutoring services are heavily inconsistent in assigning the same tutor to a student and demonstrate no commitment to establishing a relationship. There is no intentionality in caring for students’ emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Tutors are inaccessible and there is no space for students to share about their struggles. During break times, students are found playing on their phone whilst tutors talk amongst themselves.
Eden Learning fundamentally believes that proper mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health is necessary for a student to reach his or her fullest academic potential. Eden Learning is committed to training tutors in basic counseling skills and assigning a consistent individual for each student. Eden promotes tutor accessibility by utilizing planned activities to foster self-health care during 10 minute breaks. Tutors are also expected to be available 30 minutes before tutoring times and 10 minutes after for students to feel that they are being not only taught, but also mentored.
Current tutoring services may provide parents only with the subject discussed and others may leave parents with no information on what occurred during class. This lack of evaluation leaves students and parents looking solely at end results and overly critical feedback. Students feel tremendous pressure to perform and are unable to focus on making incremental improvements.
Eden understands that parents often find themselves busy, though would love to keep involved with their child’s education. Eden has created a detailed evaluation system where parents will be able to see their child’s performance in mechanics, recognition, and application on every subject covered during a tutoring session. Evaluations will also provide scores on daily quizzes and tests. This will enable parents to see measurable growth in their child’s education and promote encouragement for improvement rather than criticism.
Personalized Practice Curriculum
Many companies will advertise personalized teaching though there is no evidence that teaching is actually adapted to each student. All students are given the same material but maybe at different times so as to appear as if personalization is being done. Additionally, homework or practice problems do not account for students’ weaknesses making it highly inefficient leading to limited growth.
Eden Learning recognizes that students will have unique needs and school curriculum changes extremely frequently. To solve this issue, Eden will be preparing customized curriculums that both the student and parent will be able to see week-to-week. Homework will also emphasize specific needs to ensure maximum growth especially for those with limited time availability.
Eden Phases of Learning
Traditional tutoring institutions teach mechanics but fail to provide sufficient guidance during the latter two phases leading to limited growth and students often feeling as if they are “hitting a wall”. Many competitors fail to recognize that tutoring demonstrates a law of diminishing returns and this leaves students feeling very excited in the beginning, but demoralized as time goes on. Eden’s holistic and well-prepared teaching methods will ensure that each student will reach their maximum potential rather than simply passing. Eden is committed to guiding students for the long-haul; we’re seeking long-term success not only in high school, but also throughout our students’ college and professional careers!
