Frequently Asked Questions 

Quarantine Bubble - FAQ

Do you offer in-person or group Reading & Math tutoring?


No, at this time, we do not offer in-person or group tutoring. When we reopen our center in mid to late 2021, we will resume in-person tutoring.




What level of communication should I expect from Think, Speak & Grow Academy?


The Virtual Academic Partners and Tutors will communicate with parents weekly.




Will you assist with placing a student in a Virtual Bubble?


Yes, we will assist in placing a student in a Virtual Bubble based on age and grade level.




Do you offer Reading & Math tutoring for special needs students?


Yes, we can offer tutoring for special need students; however, it will be critical to review their IEP to determine the type of training/certification a tutor would need to serve the student adequately. If we feel we cannot adequately serve the student, we will work with the student's parents to find the appropriate support.




Will the Virtual Bubbles operate on the school year calendar? Also, will service be available during holiday breaks?


Yes, the Virtual Bubble will operate based on the school year calendar of the respective students served.




Is there an enrollment commitment for tutoring and the Virtual Bubble?


There is no enrollment commitment for 1:1 tutoring or the Virtual Bubble. However, due to high demand, a student's slot may not be available if they take breaks. Additionally, for proper planning, payment for tutoring and the Virtual Bubble is required in two-week increments.




Is there an enrollment limit for Virtual Bubbles?


Yes, there will be a 4 student limit for Virtual Bubbles. Based on a virtual summer camp pilot we conducted this past June and July, we ascertained that an effective group sizing for virtual programming is 4 students. This allows students to feel heard and interact in a meaningful and productive manner.




Will a refund be provided if when a student misses a tutoring or Virtual Bubble session?


Unfortunately, we cannot offer a refund if students miss a Virtual Bubble or tutoring session. However, we will allow tutoring students to reschedule 2 sessions per semester based on the instructor's availability.




Will the Virtual Bubbles take place daily?


The Virtual Bubbles will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.




Why is tutoring only between 4:00 - 6:00 pm Monday - Friday?


We only utilized certified K-12 teachers or content-specific college instructors for tutoring, and since they are in class during the day, we set the hours after the school day. If those times are not conducive for your schedule, we offer tutoring from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on Saturday and Sundays.
