The Power of Choice – Our Programs

 

For Powers Educational Services, learning is all about having choices – choices of how to learn, and choices of what to learn. No matter what it is your child needs, Powers is prepared to create a program for that need, or to customize one of our existing programs to your student. Essentially, every one of our programs is different for every student, because we tailor them to your child’s learning style and educational needs. Every program involves our technique of intervention tutoring whereby students are taught to use their strengths to improve their weaknesses.

Students that use Powers Educational Services have many very different learning needs. Some simply desire to improve their study or organizational skills. Others are looking for assistance in becoming better writers or in improving their ability to read. Many of our older students seek help in preparing for college preparatory tests. In response to these demands, we have designed programs that while specific to these concerns, are also able to be individualized for each student’s special needs and particular learning style. We are also dedicated to creating new programs as new needs arise. Some recent programs we have adopted include our Gifted Enrichment Program, designed to challenge those students who find themselves unfulfilled by their current education, and our Private Education Enhancement Program, designed for non-traditional students like home-schoolers who might be having trouble finding the specific program they are looking for. At Powers Educational Services, we view success as a direct result of providing our students with the choice to make their education fit who they are.

All of our programs, whether they currently exist or if we design them with your needs in mind, utilize our professional Private Teachers providing dedicated, individualized one-to-one teaching. Following is a list of programs we have developed in response to our student’s needs. Please feel free to make suggestions based on your student’s needs, if you do not see a desired program listed.
