Our MENTORING PROGRAM
PAIR WITH A MENTOR
Our mentors set Stride apart from classic tutoring services. To begin, we pair you with the right mentor based on personality and learning style. You’ll meet one-on-one, once a week, to build a plan so that you can break down daunting assignments into manageable tasks.
We built our facility to merge both body and mind. And we know that movement is the miracle drug for executive function—so throughout your in-person work sessions, you can get moving to help drive focus, memory, and brain function.
With your mentor, you’ll develop an accountability plan to check in and stay on task. Through texts, calls, and emails, you and your mentor will make sure you’re hitting your goals, improving academically, and feeling good about your work load and activities. Your mentor will monitor grade portals and check teacher websites so parents can take a step back.
A Day in the Life
As a middle school or high school student, you constantly juggle school, friends, extracurricular activities, and family. It can feel overwhelming. At Stride, you and your mentor practice the skills it takes to get organized and achieve the small tasks that ultimately lead to success on a higher level.
