“There has always been a demand for tutoring from our families,” said Seth Tendler, Director of Tutoring. “We promote creativity with our online enrichment at Flex Academies ONE, but many parents have been asking for help with the basics for their kids – reading, writing and math – and Super Tutors will address that need.”
The company’s diverse team of tutors is made up of certified teachers and experts within their fields. Tendler says that Super Tutors can match a student with an expert in any subject. If there isn’t an expert on staff, Tendler can tap into his vast network of educators to find one. He has over 25 years of experience in education as a tutor, coach and teacher for over 10 years in the D.C. public school system.
He says that the company’s “superpower” is connecting the student with the right tutor, an instructor who is knowledgeable, relatable, and excited about learning.
Tendler says parents are concerned about their kids’ social and emotional learning in new, online platforms. He understands that this has been a traumatic time for many kids who are feeling “agitated” because they are away from their friends, and learning in a new environment.
“Social and emotional learning will definitely factor into our instruction. Our Super Tutors will help students acclimate to new online learning methods and models, and build their confidence, as well as helping them learn content and improve skills,” says Tendler.
Super Tutors will offer both one-on-one and group tutoring for students in PreK3 through 8th Grade. Tendler says that families can even combine their kids for group sessions.
With many parents concerned about “brain drain” – when kids forget what they’ve learned all school year over the summer – Tendler says he is getting lots of inquiries.
“With learning time lost due to the virus this Spring, ‘brain drain’ is going to be an especially severe problem,” Tendler said. “We don’t want kids to go back to school anxious and scared, we want to empower them by having them feel prepared and ready. We want our kids to be education heroes.”
