S.T.E.A.M-Ed research-based tutorial and intervention programs have been designed by our Chief Executive Officer and State Director, having 25 and 36 years of teaching experience, respectively. As state-credentialed teachers, together they map our assessment, instructional, and intervention material to ensure that they are aligned to California's Common Core State Standards (CACCSS).
English AS A Second Language
It is our goal to assist schools in closing the achievement gap for EL students. Students work independently and in small groups with tutors who emphasize vocabulary and language development, guided interaction, metacognition and authentic assessment, and other effective strategies for EL students.
ELA/ Reading comprehension
S.T.E.A.M.-Ed aligns our ELA program instruction to state-adopted academic content standards and curriculum frameworks by ensuring that our Tutors incorporate California’s state-adopted core components to a strong Response to
Instruction and Intervention (RtI2) process into their instruction.
S.T.E.A.M.-Ed provides standards-based math tutorial focusing on number sense, operations and computations, and processes and applications to ensure that students are not simply memorizing their math, but gain an "understanding of the underlying numerical relations."
