Personalized Learning and Custom Curricula (PLCC)

What is Personalized Learning and Custom Curricula?

The MLS Personalized Learning Program aims to transfer the learning environment from a traditional classroom setting to a customized one-on-one or small group experience at our tutoring center in McLean, VA. Students work with engaging staff, utilizing a customized and competency-based curriculum. Students have the luxury of time, which means progressing through the curriculum having mastered current concepts. This is the essence of the PLCC program.

Educational Enrichment and Customization

We recognize each student’s learning needs are unique, so we take a collaborative approach when developing his or her program. We work in conjunction with parents, teachers, health professionals, and academic institutions to develop an enriching education plan that fits the student’s needs and goals.

Programs may include a combination of the following services:

  • Homeschooling for students of all grade levels 1-12
  • Providing individual or small group tutoring to homeschool students in areas such as advanced math and languages
  • Organizational support and academic tutoring for students enrolled in online courses
  • Academic support for students unable to attend school due to medical, behavioral, or psychological reasons
  • Coursework to support student-athletes engaged in rigorous training schedules which demand flexible schooling options
  • Structured and supplemental teaching for students taking or retaking coursework for school credit
  • Academic “place-holding” for students removed from brick and mortar schools and/or awaiting school placement
  • Preparation for high school and college entrance examinations

How is the Program Customized?

The true value of our program lies in its customization options—it is truly built to fit the unique needs of the student. Before the student’s first day, MLS Tutors works in conjunction with the student’s family, health professionals, and educators to consider the following aspects of the program:

  • The student’s weekly schedule
  • The curriculum to be administered
  • The pace at which the curriculum is taught
  • The manner in which the curriculum is delivered

 Students Awaiting Admission

For students awaiting admission to public or private schools, we coordinate with the receiving schools to ensure credits are accepted. We work to strengthen academic skills, shape positive behavior, and reinforce sound study habits and techniques. In addition, we have the option of including students in a group tutoring environment which adds an element of social interaction.
