“We’re ecstatic to be able to offer our tutoring and therapeutic services to the public for free or low cost. We’ve worked so hard to make this program extraordinary by combining brain training techniques, cognitive therapy, executive functioning therapy and subject remediation techniques that many tutorial services are not using or are not privy to”, says Nzingha West owner and principal educator at Urbane Academics an educational therapy and tutoring company located in New York City.
“With our live online instruction, as well as with private in-home tutoring, students are assessed in cognition, reading and math. All instruction is individualized and created to be a personal blueprint of that students strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes, so we have a complete picture of that student’s learning style. Parents are really looking for quality instruction that is affordable with real results. We are not tutoring, were re-training the brain to combat the core problems, not the symptoms like poor reading comprehension and phonemic awareness.
We’ve been lucky to be early adapters of the common core standards, so our curriculums are tried and true with guarantee results.” says Ms. West
Urbane Academics specializes in children with IEP’s, 504 plans and those who have been diagnosed with a learning disability including adhd, autism and dyslexia. “While we work with children who have learning disabilities, we also work with children who are having difficulties in school”, says Ms. West.
