AERO Online Tutoring Program
AERO Online Reading and Math Tutoring
AERO Online 1:1 Reading and Math Sessions
All of the benefits of AERO tutoring are also available through online tutoring. Year-round, AERO provides early intervention to students who are at-risk for or who are experiencing reading or math difficulties as well as enrichment programs for students with grade level academic skills. Trained and screened tutors are able to provide your student with 40-minute 1-on-1 sessions, using curriculum and instruction designed around your student’s particular needs. We currently serve children in grades PreK-8th in reading and grades 1-6 in math. All intervention programs are evidence-based and have been identified as effective approaches to reading instruction. Based on assessment results and needs, an individualized instructional plan is implemented.
Tutoring is available in 20-tutoring session blocks with an additional pre and post assessment session, meeting at a minimum twice a week. All students must complete an assessment session to begin the program which will be done the first session. Students need at least 20 sessions to see gains from tutoring; the 22nd session is for post assessment and reporting. For optimal results we recommend 64 total sessions. Sessions fill up quickly. Session scheduling times are Monday through Friday beginning at 8:30 a.m. with our last session beginning at 7:30 pm.
The cost is $1,320 for 20 tutoring sessions with two more sessions one for a pre and one for post assessment. All this in the convenience of your own home. Space is limited, so register today!

Will my student always have the same tutor?
Our practice is to have students work with one or two tutors only for continuity’s sake; however, to meet our commitment to keep to your agreed-upon schedule, we reserve the right to assign a different tutor. (Even tutors get sick sometimes!)
Can we reschedule missed sessions?
If you learn about a conflict in advance of a scheduled session, we will reschedule your student’s session with no charge. Please provide as much notice as possible to help us provide you with a convenient makeup time; however, if you provide less than four hours’ notice, we will not be able to refund or reschedule the missed session.
