Hope Haven provides group and individual tutoring, computer-based tutoring and special reading programs. Hope Haven works to coordinate tutor lessons with classroom activities for maximum benefit.
Traditional Tutoring Programs
Tutoring at Hope Haven. Hope Haven offers hourly, individual tutoring using students’ school texts and materials, tutor-selected supplemental materials, and educational computer programs. Experienced tutors are available for students of all ages, from preschoolers needing readiness skills to high-school students needing help in specific subject areas. Tutoring services are available at Hope Haven on Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Specialized Reading Programs. Hope Haven offers specialized reading programs to address very specific needs of students. The hourly requirements vary according to the learning program used and the needs of the child. Tutors are also available to coordinate with other Hope Haven staff to incorporate assistive technology when needed.
Tutoring, Other Locations. Hope Haven tutors are available at many private and public schools in the greater Jacksonville area. School-site tutoring is a convenient option for parents and students that also allows for frequent tutor-teacher communication. Hours vary by location.
Technology Tutoring Programs
Computer Tutoring. Computer-assisted tutoring is motivating for even the most reluctant learner. It is an inexpensive option for students who do not need more intensive private tutoring to build reading, writing or math skills. Computer tutoring is especially effective for remediation, practice and enrichment of all basic academic skills.
Hope Haven tutors work with four students per hour on individualized computer-assisted lessons, using recent test scores, report cards, and other school information to accurately plan each lesson. Two hours per week are recommended, and convenient after school hours (4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays) are available.
Special Needs Tutoring. Children with physical/developmental disabilities have far greater opportunities to learn, work, play and live independently, thanks to the many different assistive devices made available by advances in computer technology. Hope Haven’s Lucy Gooding Center for Assistive Technology now offers computer-assisted tutoring and communication instruction, using computer adaptations, assistive devices and software programs appropriate to individual needs. Hours and fees vary.
