About Knowledge Road
Founded by a Father and son team, Knowledge Road has been setting the standard for agencies throughout the industry. The duo started the agency recognizing the need for an organization that doesn’t simply make a connection between a school/parent and a teacher. Since Knowledge Road began operating, we have cultivated a talented team of dedicated educators who represent our values of instruction and support. Using the Common Core State Teaching Standards to determine instructional goals, our teachers bring robust resource-room services into schools and offer before, during, and after school instruction as well as push-in and pull-out programs in private, and charter schools.
What Our Teachers Offer
We offer test preparation including practice with standardized state tests. Whenever practical, we proctor students who require additional test time.
English Language Arts:
Our teachers utilize a variety of materials to instruct and to test that learning has taken place. Reading instruction concentrates on decoding and comprehension. Writing instruction improves spelling, grammar, organization, and writing style. The use of available resources including a dictionary and thesaurus, fosters academic independence, our ultimate goal.
Using the Common Core Standards, our teachers tailor the mathematics instruction to meet each individual. Creating a very personalized approach that leads to results.
SETSS (P-3 Services)
Our service is free to students at any grade level who are at risk of failing and qualify for an Individual Education Plan (IEP). We offer tutoring before, during, or after school, at school, at home, and at designated locations. Our certified teachers instruct a diverse student population in small groups of 1-5.
Our private tutoring services are held either at the child’s home, the library, or one of our new locations (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Bronx)
Limiting Group Instruction To No More Than Five Students
Limiting group size offers a more individualized approach, avoiding a spread out classroom where the teacher can’t tailor to the needs of each student.
Frequency and Duration:
We follow the student’s IEP mandate with regard to frequency and duration; many of our students receive our help each weekday and during school breaks. Our teachers are often flexible towards the schedules of the students and the school.
Students who score below grade level on diagnostic tests in Reading and Mathematics or who are in jeopardy of academic retention may qualify for an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and so, our assistance.
Parents or schools that need clarification on how to acquire an IEP may reach out to us for assistance.
