How is BrightBridge Tutoring & Test Prep LLC Service different from a learning center?

At BrightBridge Tutoring & Test Prep LLC, our tutors come directly to you. You don't need to drive anywhere! Our dedicated and qualified tutors will design a program for your child that is based on their school's curriculum, not a pre-determined program that may not relate at all to what your child is working on in school. We will also interface with your child's teacher, if necessary; to be sure your child is on the right track.

Are there any assessment tests my child must take before being tutored by BrightBridge Tutoring & Test Prep LLC Service?

No, assessment tests (which can cost up to $200.00 in a learning center environment) are not a prerequisite in order for your child to be tutored.

Do your tutors know the Everyday Math and Open Court programs?

Yes, all of our tutors are familiar with the Everyday Math program, a teaching approach that provides “home links” for the student to work on as homework. Our tutors also can tutor the Open Court program - reading and math.

Does BrightBridge Tutoring & Test Prep LLC supply any learning materials for the tutoring sessions?

We highly recommend that your child bring home their school books or any other materials they are working on in their class that relates to the subject(s) we are tutoring. In some cases our tutors will provide materials if it complements what your child is learning. However, we do not provide a curriculum. We will help you attain materials from your child's school, if necessary, or direct you to several resources where you can purchase the appropriate books, etc.

Does tutoring always take place in my home?

Yes, we come to you at your convenience. We require that a parent or guardian over the age of 21 be at home for the entire tutoring session. For student's over the age of 16, we offer tutoring at your local library, however, we highly recommend having the tutor come to you. Ask our Director for more details about this option during your complimentary in-home evaluation.

What are your tutors' qualifications?

Our tutors are full-time credentialed teachers, substitute teachers, retired teachers or Honors college students. We require a minimum of two years of formal teaching and/or tutoring experience.

We check all references and personally interview every tutor.

What if my child doesn't like the tutor?

If, after the first session is complete, you do not think the tutor is a good match with your child, you will not be charged for the session and another tutor will be contacted.

Are there a minimum number of sessions for which I have to commit and how long is each session?

No, we do not have any long-term contracts, however, we strongly suggest a minimum of four sessions in order to really see progress. The minimum amount of time for each session is one hour.

Do your tutors work with learning disabled or special needs children?

Yes, many of our tutors are Special Needs certified and will be able to work in conjunction with your child’s I.E.P. or 504 Plan.

I home school my child. Can you help me?

Yes. If your child is being home schooled we will provide a credentialed teacher or a certified tutor, depending on which type of home school program your child is receiving.

I have more than one child. Can you tutor all of them at the same time?

All of our tutoring is one-on-one. In order for our tutors to be most effective, and for your children to benefit the most from our services, we do not do group tutoring in a home setting. During the in-home consultation, our Director will work out the most cost-effective way for all of your children to be tutored individually.

How long do I have to wait to get a tutor assigned to my child?

After we meet with you, our Director will contact one of our tutors within 24 hours. We will call you to tell you about the tutor. The tutor will then call you to introduce themselves, get directions to your home and establish a schedule that works for you.

Do you accept major credit cards?

Yes, we do. You can give us your credit card number at the consultation and we can set you up for automatic monthly or bi-weekly payments. If you prefer to pay by check at some point in the future, no problem! Just call or email us and we can change your preferred method of payment in our accounting system. Conversely, if you pay by check and decide you want to switch to a credit card, just let us know. Whatever is going to be most convenient for you..

Do you tutor students in college?

Yes, we have tutors who are very capable of tutoring college level courses. Requests for college level tutoring have increased dramatically in the last year and we can provide an experienced, credentialed teacher or professor. College students can be tutored on campus or in the library.

What geographical areas do you service?

We have tutors available in Denver area. Please refer to our Home page for specific cities. If your city is not listed and you live in the general area, please contact us anyway, we will do our best to help you find a tutor.

My child has autism and I am looking for an in-home aide to assist me. Do you provide those kind of services?

Yes, we have a large network of qualified individuals who are trained in working with autistic kids on all levels. We will be happy to work in tandem with your therapists and doctors to provide in-home assistance.

Do you provide test preparation for the SAT ACT, AP and CAT6 tests?

Yes, we prepare students for all of the abovementioned exams. We require that a test preparation book is used. If you don't have one, we can recommend one for you and tell you where you can purchase it at a reasonable price. We highly recommend that you contact us at least six weeks before the test so our tutors have enough time to help your child prepare. Although we only require one hour a week of tutoring, our experience has been that two hours a week for test prep is the most effective. The rate is the same as our hourly rates for tutoring.

How do I get started?

You can contact us at 720-329-2406 or email us at info@brightbridgetutoring.com. Our Director will set up a complimentary in-home consultation. This is an informal meeting with you and your child. Please have all relevant schoolwork, progress reports, report cards and testing results (if applicable) available for this meeting.
