One of the first questions we get from our stakeholders is what, exactly, is educational consulting?
While many firms have their own definitions of this notoriously ambiguous term, in our view “educational consulting” means that we work with all sides of the table in order to find the best solution for students.
That means working with parents, teachers, school and state education administrators, as well as students to help refine and advance the teaching practices and curriculum.
While often times the high-level curriculum is extremely strict, teachers and individual school districts can still have leeway as far as how they achieve the state or federal educational goals. We help work with them to share best practices and lead their students to success.
In order to be successful consultants, we need to understand everyone’s needs, and that includes, first and foremost, the needs of the students.
We operate a wide-reaching network of tutors who work one on one with students online via Skype or Google Hangouts. Most commonly, students will meet with their tutors a minimum of once a week, and often 2 to 3 times per week, depending on the student needs.
That gives us unprecedented experience with students across the country, helping us to isolate trends and capitalize upon exciting new techniques.
