Pre- and Post-Test Instruments

Based on your needs and requirements, each student is given a pre and post assessment using the Achieve Assessment.  We have additional assessments depending on the student’s ability and/or availability to complete an assessment. We have assessments in English or Spanish.  

For our Special Needs students, we request a copy of the IEP and will work on those goals. 

 REACH is committed to providing reasonable testing accommodations for students with documented disabilities or health related needs to ensure fairness of all test takers as recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Based on your districts policy, REACH also contacts the student’s classroom teacher, via email, to gain additional input on the student’s needs. 

REACH Instructional Program

We operate under a simple philosophy that has proven successful for hundreds of children. We provide tutoring using professional teachers/tutors who are academically qualified with proven teaching experience and a desire to help children. The money that your district invests in tutoring is directed at getting results. 

Our goal is the provide each child with an enriching and effective tutoring experience. 

Attempting to introduce a full new curriculum to a struggling student can cause confusion and can create further frustration. REACH Tutors utilize material that closely matches your school’s curriculum. This process assists the student in gaining a better understanding of the subject. Since REACH is not a franchised company, we are not limited to one propriety curriculum. 

Tutor Coordination

Your district will be assigned a Tutor Coordinator who will oversee the tutoring program, assign and manage tutors, and answer questions from parents. We provide a phone number for Spanish speaking caregivers. Norm Drexel, Managing Partner at REACH, is active in overseeing the program as well. It is a full team effort.
