The right kind of tutoring
The Fortune Academy LEAP Program is open to the public. LEAP promotes forward growth in a student’s academic and real-world abilities. It is a combination of fun and therapeutic custom-designed sessions for each individual student. Rather than take a broad approach for all students, LEAP is both prescriptive and diagnostic which sets the stage for the right approach for your student. This is done through either one-on-one tutoring sessions or small group settings after school hours. We also have a program that runs during the summer months to keep learning happening all year long!
LEAP is an extension of the overall mission of Fortune Academy by providing additional, intensive, and individualized interventions that help equip students with language learning differences to become competent and lifelong learners in reading, writing, math, study skills, and subject-based tutoring. By also providing OT, PT, and SLP services in a nurturing environment, we help build individual strengths and remediate individual weaknesses.
Since students with LD are affected by varying degrees, some of our students may require additional, more intensive and individualized interventions. The tutors and licensed therapists at Fortune Academy are highly trained and experienced professionals who cater to working with LD students. All of our tutors have been trained and supervised by Janet George, a Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham of Practitioners and Educators.
Sessions are held on the Fortune Academy campus after school hours. The one-on-one sessions will take place in two 50-minute sessions per week. A tutor fitting the needs of the student will be assigned by the LEAP Program Tutor Coordinator. Depending upon the student’s needs, they may be assigned more than one tutor for different subject areas.
