AIC Pioneer Valley K-12 Tutorial

Tutoring Model

American International College’s Pioneer Valley K-12 Tutorial Program provides one-to-one instruction using proven, research-based interventions for students with language based learning disabilities. AIC tutors serve students throughout the Pioneer Valley, addressing most academic areas, but particularly literacy development.

AIC tutors are trained in well-researched, proven techniques, such as the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing® Program, the Story Grammar Marker®, and Visualizing and Verbalizing. Tutoring services can be provided under contract to the student’s public school as part of the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) or may be provided privately. 

Tutoring Process

Prior to the start of tutoring, we review student work samples, diagnostic information, and the IEP, if applicable. Each individualized program is developed to address the unique strengths and weaknesses of the student, assuring that the services we provide are appropriate to the student’s diagnostic profile.

Instruction is generally provided within the student’s academic setting, but can also be arranged on the campus of American International College. Active communication between AIC and current school personnel ensures inclusion of the student’s curriculum within the tutorial sessions. Additionally, our effective interventions are shared with current school personnel so that they may be included throughout the student’s academic day. Regular written reports are also provided to parents and the current school to document progress.
