Parents also receive ongoing progress reports and weekly notifications regarding the lessons and how many hours are remaining within the system.

Where do tutoring sessions typically occur?
Families will be able to coordinate with the tutors to work out a mutually accommodating schedule and preferred meeting location (in-person or online).

How are sessions scheduled?
Tutors and families have the ability to schedule sessions directly. Sessions are able to be scheduled through an online Embrace Calendar system.

How long are sessions?
The length of the private tutoring sessions depends on the student’s needs and curriculum. Typically, most sessions are 1 hour to 90 minutes.

Is it possible to do a trial session?
Yes, it is certainly possible to do an initial (paid) trial session to ensure the right fit between the student and tutor. After the initial trial session, families then enroll in an Embrace Package specific to the student’s needs.

What happens during the private tutoring sessions?
During the session, tutors will provide a thorough overview of the content and strategies associated with the subject matter. The overall goal is to always build the student’s confidence and ensure they are engaged with the material.

What are the average results for students participating in Embrace private tutoring sessions?
Embrace students typically improve in their academic courses by a full letter grade. With respect to ACT and SAT, students will improve by an average of 5 points (ACT) and 200+ points (SAT). The average increase depends on the initial score, frequency of sessions, and student engagement throughout.
