Our tutorial programs are designed to support students with any academic need. We serve both those struggling in school, as well as those who aim to improve test scores and/or move ahead of the traditional curriculum.
We support students of any age and in any subject. Currently the center has students as young as four up to adulthood. We go to great lengths to match each student with an instructor who will best meet his/her needs. Each student who schedules regular ongoing sessions will have the same tutor for each session, allowing a connection to develop between the student and his/her tutor. When a tutor isn’t available for a session you may choose to cancel a session, reschedule for another time or choose to have a substitute tutor.
The Bowie Center uses specialty programs in reading and math. The Wilson Reading System has a great success rate in supporting students of any age who struggle with dyslexia or other reading disorders. Moving With Math is our program of choice when working with any student needing math support from lower school through the beginning of pre- algebra. We train each instructor for these specific programs.
One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the Bowie Center is our strong communication with each tutoring family. Each tutoring session is concluded with a personalized session summary written by the tutor and emailed to the parent within 24-hours. These individual reports recap the lessons covered in the session, give observations by the tutor, and often list ideas on activities the student could do to help strengthen skills before coming back to their next session.
