The student-to-tutor ratio never exceeds 3-to-1 at a KnowledgePoints Learning Center. Your child will personally interact with their tutor at all times in order to maximize their success in the program.

At KnowledgePoints, our Center Directors participate in an intense three part training program before they are certified by KnowledgePoints.

The materials used in the KnowledgePoints program come from America’s most respected publishers, such as McGraw-Hill and Harcourt Brace. Choosing from a library with more than 20,000 lessons, we are able to design an individualized tutoring program for your child. Lessons start at the level where children have tested and help them master each skill area as they work toward achieving their goals.

Based on the results of the Diagnostic Assessment, we custom build a tutoring program specifically for your child’s needs – it’s a unique “prescription” written just for your child. Students are monitored on a daily basis and changes are made to their individualized plan as needed.

The KnowledgePoints program begins with a complete Diagnostic Assessment to pinpoint your child’s specific needs. This battery of tests is administered individually and measures achievement level and mastery of specific skills in areas such as vocabulary, comprehension, math computation and concepts. Our assessment provides a clear picture of your child’s strengths and weaknesses.
