An update from Exponential Tutoring Services: enrollment and expansion
September 17, 2014
By Clara Burgess
Here we are about to embark into new territory for our tutoring program. We have
graduated two classes from our SAT course and are working on a third. As we speak,
we are beginning the relatively new college advising experience. This is our first batch
of students to go through the college application process, and therefore we are learning
as we move forward in the process. Students are beginning to write college application
essays and select schools. Fortunately for Expo we have recently hired a new staff
member who is assisting us to ensure that we research and locate the most appropriate
schools for our students.
In other news, our tutoring services are in the midst of expansion. After some
exploration, ETS is setting foot into new territory, working with university students. This
idea has been suggested by professionals and students, and as we enter September and
university students return from summer vacation Expo staff are preparing for the new
recruitment session by making connections with university students and staff members.
Here are some highlights from a few of our current students who we are walking through
the college application process.
Mohammed Abdul Manaf says:
"With Exponential Education I became familiar with the SAT. With their experience and
good teaching ethics they taught me about the SAT. With those skills I passed the exam
and we are now working on my application. Most importantly, the tutors show love to the
students and give their best. I love everything about exponential."
"I like that the tutors have time for their students no matter what. They do their possible
best to help students with the SAT and are always around to answer questions. Students
each get personal attention and feel free in class to ask any questions."
