SERVING YOUR STUDENTS
Pre and Post Test Instruments
Based on your needs and requirements, each student is given a pre and post assessment using the Achieve Assessment. We have additional assessments depending on the student’s ability and/or availability to complete an assessment. We have assessments in English or Spanish.
For our Special Needs students, we request a copy of the IEP and will work on those goals.
REACH is committed to providing reasonable testing accommodations for students with documented disabilities or health related needs to ensure fairness of all test takers as recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Based on your districts policy, REACH also contacts the student’s classroom teacher, via email, to gain additional input on the student’s needs.
REACH Instructional Program
We operate under a simple philosophy that has proven successful for hundreds of children. We provide tutoring using professional teachers/tutors who are academically qualified with proven teaching experience and a desire to help children. The money that your district invests in tutoring is directed at getting results.
Our goal is the provide each child with an enriching and effective tutoring experience.
Attempting to introduce a full new curriculum to a struggling student can cause confusion and can create further frustration. REACH Tutors utilize material that closely matches your school’s curriculum. This process assists the student in gaining a better understanding of the subject. Since REACH is not a franchised company, we are not limited to one propriety curriculum.
Your district will be assigned a Tutor Coordinator who will oversee the tutoring program, assign and manage tutors, and answer questions from parents. We provide a phone number for Spanish speaking caregivers. Norm Drexel, Managing Partner at REACH, is active in overseeing the program as well. It is a full team effort.

We offer an on-line communication program that is web based and can be accessed 24/7 by authorized persons in your district. It gives you access to lesson notes, past and planned future attendance, and can email lesson notes to teachers. Our tutors are required to update the system within 24 hours of completing each session.
We can track you spending at the end of each month to be sure that your budgeted funds are not exceeded.
At the end of the school year or program, we can provide you with a report showing the growth of each student and the notes from each tutoring session. We can provide this is various formats and, in some cases, can offer you a comparison to how your student’s progress matched to other districts around the state.
