GROW Classroom

Student progress reaches beyond the classroom. Progress Point Tutoring GROW provides additional academic and mental health resources for students, tutors, and families.

About Progress Point Tutoring GROW

GROW is led by our team of Progress Coaches who monitor individual student progress and provide tutors additional support with their students. They also walk students, tutors, and families through academic and mental health resources listed on our GROW classroom.

Why is my student not engaged?

The classroom is not a closed system. Life outside of the classroom can impact the learning process and shape how students measure their own success.

Why is my student struggling?

Learning takes time. For struggling students, it is important to understand that their academic trajectory is not defined by test scores or effort alone.

Schedule A 1-on-1 Meeting

Progress Coaches can meet individually with students, parents, and tutors for academic needs and strategize lesson plans. They can also discuss the mental health resources outlined below and recommend for next steps. Email to schedule a meeting at your convenience.

Specific Learning Differences

There are many reasons students may need extra support. Sometimes, learning differences like dyslexia or ADHD may play a role. Learn more about these differences, recommendations, and public resources for students with specific learning differences in our Guide to Common Learning Differences.

Learn. Listen. GROW.
