About Us

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide educational and support services designed to improve student achievement while building their self confidence.

Our Method

During the initial consultation, your child will be given a series of questions. Their responses will help us to determine the kind of learner our tutors will be responsible to teach. Also, the parent/guardian will be asked what their expectations are of our tutoring program.

Next, we will administer a pre test at the child’s grade level in both Reading and Math in order to determine what their strengths and weaknesses are in those subjects. With the parent’s permission, we talk to the child’s homeroom teacher about his/her behavior and academic performance in school.

Lastly, we develop a learning plan for each student that is designed to meet their specific needs using the information provided by you and your child’s classroom teacher. Through this collaborative effort, we form a team with one goal in mind – a successful student. Also, you will be provided written progress reports periodically throughout the program so that you can monitor your child’s growth towards success.

Each child will receive a healthy snack before each session and will receive great prizes for good attendance.

Our Staff

At J-Vision we pride ourselves on hiring qualified instructors that have at least a BA/BS, a teaching certificate or work towards a state credential. Our instructors have extensive experience in the education industry and are well versed in all subject matters taught. They are dedicated to the belief that all students can learn if given the proper tools and necessary skills to do so. J-Vision provides extensive training to our staff on our curriculum, procedures and conflict management. We hire retired teachers and administrators to mentor our students and to give back to the communities that we service.
