How We Do it

By Following the Superior Students In-Home Tutoring Program Instructional Path

Superior Students In-Home Tutoring  has developed a unique Instructional Path that checks-in with you and your child along the way to ensure you and your child are happy with the program. Your child is held accountable for their learning and successfully showcases their accomplishments of their defined learning opportunities.

Superior Students In-Home Tutoring conducts a Pre-Assessment that directly assesses against the provincial curriculum. (JK-Grd.8). This Pre-Assessment determines your child’s grade level and reveals your child’s learning opportunities, and allows Superior Students In-Home Tutoring to develop your child’s programming with us.

Superior Students never repeats the Pre-Assessment. Our Check-Point Assessments assess exactly what your child has covered in their program to date, and we ensure your child is more than ready for each Check-Point Assessment by conducting review sessions as part of the Superior Students In-Home Tutoring program.

Superior Students provides detailed reports on your child’s progress, as well as for each Check-Point Assessment, so that we are continuously discovering your child’s learning opportunities and providing instruction that absolutely adheres to their specific and changing needs.

Approaching the completion of the program, we review with your child all program skills covered. Your child then showcases their knowledge through a last Check-Point Assessment. From this assessment we develop one final detailed report representing your child’s accomplishments and suggested next steps.

Please Contact Us. We will be more than happy to provide a complimentary consultation and discuss the Superior Students In-Home Tutoring Program Instructional Path and how it will take your child through a process of learning that develops them into successful, independent learners.

Reading is an imperative skill that is the foundation of success in school and in life. How can your child solve a math problem if they cannot read and understand it? How can your child choose their favourite brand or flavour of cereal if they cannot read the box?

Reading is an involved process with 5 components:

  • Phonics
  • Phonemic Awareness
  • Vocabulary
  • Fluency
  • Reading Comprehension

Each builds from the previous and each component is imperative to fulfill the entire experience of reading. Superior Students In-Home Tutoring Reading Program works through these components in conjunction with the four strands of the reading curriculum to develop strong, successful readers.

The provincial reading curriculum to grade 8 has 4 strands, each with its own set of skills:

  1. Reading for Meaning
  2. Understanding form and Style
  3. Reading with Fluency
  4. Reflecting on Reading Skills and Strategies

Superior Students In-Home Tutoring will pre-assess your child in all 4 areas, covering each skill therein to ensure we uncover the exact learning opportunities that your child exposes.

  • Pre-writing
  • Drafting
  • Revising
  • Editing
  • Publishing

Each step of the writing process must be conducted in order to create a written piece that easily communicates to the audience the writer’s intended message. And correct grammar plays an integral role in good writing and so too in Superior Students In-Home Tutoring writing program.

Math we may not realize is everywhere. Jenny has 8 candies but her mother told her to give 1/2 of them to her friends so how many candies does she need to give away? Louis has $3.50 and really wants that puzzle book but it costs $4.25 so how much more money does he need to purchase the puzzle book? Math happens in real life when kids may not realize. The basics are crucial foundations for basic math needs in the world and to be used as a foundation for more complex maths and sciences in high school. If your child is expressing the desire to become an astronomer, meteorologist, animator, game designer, sports announcer, pilot or even a roller coaster designer – they all require math skills and more complex math skills, that come from the basic foundations of math as taught in the elementary and intermediate school years.

  1. Number Sense and Numeration
  2. Measurement
  3. Geometry and Spatial Sense

About Our Founder

Alexandra Stabins is the president and founder of Superior Students In-Home Tutoring.

Alexandra believes that your child deserves the opportunity to learn, and to receive the support he or she needs to succeed at learning. Alexandra knows that a uniform way of teaching does not benefit every child as every child is a unique learner, therefore every child requires a unique teaching process. Though Superior Students In-Home Tutoring does work with an “8 Step” learning process, Superior Students In-Home Tutoring adjusts the process based on the needs of your child so that he or she becomes a successful learner.

Alexandra has worked with and researched major tutoring companies, and has observed practices that don’t meet her high standard of delivering education. Alexandra has gathered parent feedback and testimonials and decided that  an in-home learning atmosphere provides each child with focused instruction, through an effective learning process that develops a child’s learning at their own pace in the comfort of their own home.

Alexandra has made certain that Superior Students In-Home Tutoring is not a traditional tutoring service. Superior Students In-Home Tutoring does not supplement learning – Superior Students In-Home Tutoring works with your child so that they develop the foundations to support their continued learning, and develop the knowledge and skills to become independent learners and thinkers.

Alexandra’s credentials include a M.Sc.Ed. with a Concentration in Mathematics and a B.A. in English, and well over 15 years in professional roles that have allowed her to develop a strong business acumen and an educational business model for Superior Students In-Home Tutoring that aims to provide every child with the opportunity for educational success. Learning must not be a privilege, but a right each child has, and Superior Students In-Home Tutoring wants to give each child that access and we will work with you to ensure that takes place.
