What is it like to be a student at OTL?
Students at OTL can expect an extremely high caliber of instruction in a clean and professional environment. Each student’s characteristics are evaluated and carefully matched with a tutor who best suits their needs. Younger students (K-5) usually have homework or test prep materials they bring to the session and/or the tutor prepares lessons prior to the student’s appointment. Students in the higher grade levels (6th-college) focus on understanding the concepts presented in homework, projects and test study materials. Open communication between the student and tutor is crucial for academic success. Any upcoming tests/quizzes, recent grades, and comfort level in the subject that is being tutored is needed and expected.
Why work with On Track Learning?
Students usually want or need a tutor because they need further clarification of concepts that are being taught in their class, in a private one on one session. This individual attention from a tutor allows for the opportunity to specifically address points of confusion and clear up any issues that might have been overlooked in the classroom. This personalized attention ensures that no concept gets "through the cracks" of the student’s academic arsenal. Tutoring also eliminates the frustration felt by a student who has fallen behind or struggles to keep up with the curriculum; which compounds as the material increases in difficulty. A tutor can help identify a problem in its infancy and focus on understanding the concept behind the problem. This support system is the basis of success in private tutoring.
How do I become a student?
Students interested in tutoring may contact Dan Harrington directly. An introductory evaluation will be set up to ensure compatibility with both parties. Dan will then match the student’s profile with the tutor that best matches the student’s needs. A regular monthly schedule is then agreed upon between the student and tutor.
