As the school year draws closer, so grows the desires for students to succeed. While Madison schools have sometimes struggled to meet yearly goals, this year they have implemented a new tool to make reaching this goal easier. This new tool is the ADC Tutoring Program.
ADC Tutoring Corp. describes themselves on their website as, “a Florida-based tutoring company providing quality tutoring services to Title I schools through the Supplemental Educational Services (SES) program. ADC Tutoring, Corp. utilizes a research-based curricula for both reading and rath. The curriculum is designed for daily 20-30 minute activities providing children with meaningful practice in reading fluency, comprehension, word study as well as math skills and concepts. Tutoring services are provided after school two-three days a week for 60-90 minutes per session. Our services assist students in improving their academic achievement through additional instruction and review.”
ADC’s program has helped several counties across Florida assist their students in succeeding each year. The program is designed to help students make gains in FCAT as well as in school testing. Their website explains, “ADC has demonstrated considerable evidence of high academic achievement over the past four year of serving student through SES. In the 2009-10 school year (SY) the program student participation increased by 48%.”
ADC’s mission is, “ADC Tutoring is sensitive to individual student needs and is committed to helping each student meet specific academic goals that will promote confidence and success.” They also say of their program, “Instruction is based on norm-referenced, research based reading and math assessments which allows ADC Tutors to pinpoint individual student learning needs. ADC has demonstrated considerable evidence of high academic achievement over the past four years.”
“ADC personnel plan with parents and school districts to develop measurable achievement goals, Student Learning Plan (SLP), for each student via diagnostic test information, gathering district student data, i.e., IEP, 504 plans and meeting with the parent face to face. ADC tutors/instructors utilize the following pre-post assessment instruments in identifying areas of strengths and weakness: Florida Assessment for Instruction and Reading (FAIR), Group Reading Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation (GRADE) and Group Mathematics Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation (GMADE).”
This after-school tutoring program will be offered for grades K-12 in both math and reading. They will be serving all Madison County SES school sites. For more information you can visit their website at www.adctutoring.com or contact Denise Robinson at 464-1153, or email her at email@example.com.
