Programs Offered

Our programs include Math, Science, English, Reading, Computer Literacy, Robotics, 3-D Printing, and SAT/ACT preparation. All programs are available online and we offer in-person courses as needed. We introduce new programs frequently to meet the evolving needs of our students.

 

We provide regular Professional Development (PD) as well as regular meetings at Studentnest to ensure our instructors are delivering the most up-to-date course material. Chander Joshi travels to the Downey office on a weekly basis and conducts meetings with staff and educators on a regular basis. As a regular discussion, the philosophy and purpose of Studentnest are discussed frequently. We provide online PD conducted by Dr. Brad Huff, who has over 50 years of educational services experience.

 

We provide a monthly summary to parents as well as school districts to ensure that all parties with vested interest in the growth of the student is well aware of the progress. For parents and schools districts that require a more frequent update, we are organized to provide that support. We are also able to provide updates to parents via phone at the parent’s request. This is all in addition to our in-person progress report review session with parents.

Professional Development/Tutor

Studentnest employs qualified and experienced tutors who possess the expertise to work with low performing students. All tutors are required to hold a two year degree with a minimum of two years work experience in the field. Our tutors have strong skills in key Math and ELA subject areas including but not limited to Geometry, Algebra, Statistics, Calculus, Grammar, Critical thinking, Writing Comprehension, etc. At present, we have over 250 highly qualified tutors who are available when students need them. All tutors are FBI/DOJ cleared.

 

Many of our tutors are credentialed former K-12 school teachers who have received class management training as part of their education and at their school sites. They have been with our company for eight years or more.

Content

All standard tutoring content is reviewed and updated on an annual basis with timely updates made to align with changing educational requirements. For example, when the Common Core standards went into effect we instituted a large update to our tutoring content to ensure alignment. Our tutoring content is also aligned to meet requirements of school districts to ensure compliance with their needs and the needs of the State’s standards.

 

All content is aligned with CCSS. Studentnest’s tutoring content is aligned to each state’s content standards. The curriculum has been established over 11 years of providing services.

Student Learning Plans

For student learning plans we conduct a pre-test, and based on the results a SLP is created. The SLP is provided to our content and technology team to upload the necessary educational content for our educators. Upon completion of the program, a post-assessment is conducted to support a continuous feedback loop process to refine our learning plans.

 

LP development is acknowledged as an important step in tutoring. This task will be completed by our site coordinators who will also be responsible for grading and entering scores into the database. Our office staff creates CCSS aligned student achievement goals based on students’ needs determined by the pre-test and generates SLPs. We recognize parent engagement as a key component of a child’s academic progress because it helps in developing a trusting and respectful relationships with families.
