TUTORING AND EDUCATION SERVICES
AIP FACULTY TUTORING
DAYS: M-TH (Days vary by instructor)
Tutoring is used to enhance the learning process for students. Tutoring is a positive piece of a student's academic journey and should never be viewed as a negative aspect. Students who work with tutors develop stronger time management and study skills. They gain an understanding of their personal learning style and how to capitalize on their strengths. AIP Faculty offers tutoring for all grade levels after school. *Please note: Group Tutoring is based on current performance and parents will be notified if their student needs to attend. For Individual Tutoring services, please refer to your teacher's packet for tutoring times and cost (average cost is $20/hour). Also, please inquire about our phonics, reading, and math specialist.
AIP follows the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). To learn the standards for your student's grade, please click the following link: https://www.georgiastandards.org

Learning evaluations, also called educational assessments or educational evaluations, are a series of tests and observations that provide insight on how a child learns and their current level of knowledge, skills, and abilities. Evaluations give professional clinicians the information they need to understand a child’s learning profile, diagnose a learning disability, and create the plan that will help a child overcome their learning differences. There are six types of learning evaluations and assessments. The six types of learning evaluations include educational evaluation, neurodevelopmental evaluation, neuropsychological evaluation, occupational therapy evaluation, psychoeducational evaluation, and speech-language evaluation. Learning Assessments help create Individual Education Plans (IEP). IEPs assist education teams and parents with developing the plans, tools, settings, and reinforcement techniques a students needs to be successful.
At AIP, we understand that from time to time students may have a different way of absorbing academic information. This difference in thought process DOES NOT stop students from achieving academic success. Learning assessments, for students in the private school setting, are not covered under The Individuals with Disabilities Act. Often, parents have to seek assessments through insurance or pay out of pocket. Evaluations, under certain medical professions, can cost between $3,000-$6,000.
