Approved  Tutor Tuition Plan

What is "approved tutor" status?

 

  • There is a provision within the Virginia compulsory attendence code that allows parents and guardians to hire an "approved tutor" with a Virginia state teaching license.

  • This "approved tutor" develops, delivers, and monitors curriculum and instruction for a student instead of that student attending traditional public or private schools.

 

How does the "approved tutor" work?

 

  • The tutor  provides the school system with a copy of his or her teaching license along with a letter stating that he or she will develop curriculum and deliver instruction for a designated period of time for a student.  

  • Then the family  works out a schedule for the "approved tutor" and the student to meet at a center to complete the course work.  (daycare, sports complex, etc.)

 

What are the advantages of hiring an "approved tutor"?

 

  • There are no SOL test requirements.  

  • The student is given personal attention to help emphasize his or her strengths and interests as a student.  

  • The parent/guaridan does not have to create or purchase curriculum.  

  • the parent/guardian does not have to provide proof of progress testing to the school system.

 

What is the role of the parent/guardian?

 

  • The parent/guaridian continues to support, encourage, and motivate their student and work closely with the tutor to ensure that the student is making progress towards his or her goals.  

  • The tutor will also make recommendations to the parent/guardian of activities and discussions that the family can enjoy together. 

  • Students deserve exceptional instruction that prepares them for their future and not just for one particular test.

  • Students have the opportunity to interact with experienced, licensed educators and work towards earning their  high school diploma.
