What to Expect When Getting Started:
Step 1: Reach Out to Schedule Your Initial Consultation
We love to hear from you!
Each one of our students has unique needs. We want to hear directly from you about your child's learning profile, what has worked in the past, what has not worked, and what their interest are. This initial consultation is important for us to ensure that we will work with your child is the way that is most effective and comfortable for them!
Your initial 30-minute consultation will take place via phone call or zoom, and this is when we will listen to whatever you feel is important to share with us. Additionally, we will provide more details about our services such as pricing, lesson frequency, scheduling, data tracking, etc...
Step 2: Schedule Your Initial Assessment (Wilson Students Only)
The Wilson Reading System has a great initial assessment called the Wilson Assessment of Decoding and Encoding (WADE). This assessment takes about 30-45 minutes, and is completed virtually. Your student will just need access to a writing utensil and printer (to print the pages for writing on prior to our scheduled meeting time).
After the assessment is complete, we will write up a report summarizing the results and share it with you. This assessment will guide us on choosing the appropriate starting point in the program based on your student's individual needs.
Step 3: Set Your Schedule
At LD Expert, we pride ourselves on being fexible and accommodating with scheduling. Our team of teachers can see students during the school day, after school, or in the evenings. We will work with you to find days and times that fit your busy lifestyle and match your student with a teacher that meets their scheduling needs, and feels like a good fit based on personality and specializations.
Step 4: Sign Your Contract
LD Expert, LLC strives for professionalism in all of our operations. Our Family Tutoring Contracts can be signed digitally, and will be sent to you through DocuSign. Contractual periods are Fall Semester, Spring Semester, and Summer.
At any time, you are permitted to make changes to your schedule or decide that our services are not a good fit for your family. Even though your contract is signed for a whole semester. we just ask for two-weeks notice to terminate the contract without any early termination fees.
Step 5: Begin Your Lessons!
Once we have received your signed contract, lessons can offically begin! Your teacher will send you an introduction email that includes instructions about how to log into their Zoom Meeting Room.
We are so excited to start working with your family!
