# Summer Learning Loss is real!

Children learn best when instruction remains consistent. With the long summer break, students can lose what they learned the previous year and are left in need of significant review when they return to school.

However, with Emerald City Tutors one-on-one support, we provide accredited curriculum to help keep your student’s math, reading, and writing skills sharp! Whether you would like to get your son or daughter ahead of the pack for next year or do some review to ensure their understanding, Emerald City Tutors can help!

## Our Curriculum

Emerald City Tutors incorporates a variety of curriculum carefully designed to encourage independent learning, including Pearson’s GRADE™ and GMADE™ Curriculum. Our curriculum specializes in grades K-6, however we do have middle school lesson plans available as well! Please read below for Pearson’s accreditation or click on a grade to see what your student would be covering!

## Assessment

Our one-on-one tutors assess students based on their performance in the various areas of the curriculum. As the tutor gets to know your student, they are able to adapt their instruction according to your students’ understanding, learning style, and goals.

“Meets federal requirements of Reading First and No Child Left Behind by diagnostically assessing essential elements of reading.” **

“Recognizes that learning to read is not a singular, one-dimensional process. As students learn to read, they progress through a series of benchmarks, each representing different kinds of learning tasks.” **

“Meets the NCTM's Principles & Standards for School Mathematics and new Curriculum Focal Points by diagnostically assessing core skills in the following three areas: Concepts & Communication, Operations & Computation, Process & Application.” **

“Offers a complete correlated instructional cycle so you can plan lesson activities that directly address students’ needs. Educators… identify those students who need additional instruction, adjust instructional materials to seamlessly address identified needs in skill areas and reassess to accurately track student progress.” **
