Academic Temple was founded on the belief that one-on-one tutoring is a uniquely powerful way to learn. Our years of experience have shown us that there are three essential parts to a successful tutor placement.
- Tutor Selection
- Monitoring and Feedback
Consultation– Before we can help a student, we often need to spend quite a significant amount of time learning about the student’s requirements. Most consultations are carried out over the phone, though some are done in person at our office. Our students’ needs vary hugely, and we are often asked to help in intricate cases, such as setting up a home-schooling program. Via our detailed consultations, we make sure that the objectives of each tutoring placement are well established from the outset. If it is deemed necessary, we often arrange for students to be academically assessed. This is usually done by one of Academic Temple’s permanent staff. The assessor helps parents set realistic goals for the tutoring, and passes a thorough report to both the tutor and parent detailing areas requiring attention.
Academic Temple has a comprehensive knowledge of the Nigerian education system, and during the initial consultation we often advise parents on how best to incorporate tutoring alongside the demands of school and home life. Indeed, many of Academic Temple’s tutors and consultants are current or ex-classroom teachers.
Tutor Selection– The selection of the tutor is an integral part of our process. Our Client Administrators discuss each placement in exact detail Academic Temple’s Director of Education. Priding ourselves on how well we know the varying strengths of each tutor, we ensure that each decision is informed by the expectation of a successful match between the tutor and student. Academic Temple Tutors has a rigorous tutor selection procedure and we look to ensure that we put forward the very best candidate for each role.
Monitoring and Feedback– We make contact with the parent and tutor after the first set of lessons to discuss the reactions of both, and to see whether the stated objectives are being met or need some re-adjusting. Tutors submit a monthly report detailing: the focus of that month’s tutoring, the form of assessment used, the student’s achievements and areas for further work and the focus for the upcoming month.
Academic Temple has built its reputation on providing supplementary tutoring: filling in gaps in a child’s education. Using excellent tutors teaching one-on-one, it provides this supplementary support effectively and efficiently, often teaching years of curriculum content in a few months.
There was a time when most education was conducted in this manner. Before the advent of mass schooling, many families used individual tutors on a full-time basis to provide a rigorous education, Academic Temple is pleased to be able to offer this home schooling model of education to parents.
