Our Programs

UROK provides individualized, one-on-one instructional services to students struggling with LiteracyReading Comprehension, Math and essay-writing. Our expert instructors create unique curricula based on data-driven best practices and each child’s specific needs, focusing on their deficiency while also tapping into their strengths in order to provide confidence and encourage success in all academic areas.

UROK’s Discovery program prepares students to be responsible, respectful members of the global community. Through a journaling-curriculum, students in a small-group setting, facilitated by a participating instructor, explore social issues in context of their own lives. Participants are encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences pertaining to each topic, serving as a catalyst to eye-opening discussions that often allow students to realize that despite our differences, we are all going through very similar human experiences. The curriculum is supported by Common Core State Standards.

Tutor Qualifications

All of tutors are full trained in our course material and receive a minimum of 16 hours of training before becoming a Certified UROK Tutor. Tutors are required to have a minimum of at least two years of study at an institution of higher education, an associate’s degree or higher, or one year of education-related experience prior to hire.  We assess all of our tutors to determine their appropriate instructional level.  In addition, UROK provides additional intervention training for working with Students with Disabilities and English Learners to qualified staff for use in small group and 1:1 settings.
