Evaluation Process

We will meet with the parent(s) and student(s) to assess their needs based on lifestyle, mindset, academics, and abilities.

Evaluations vary for each individual. We will start with an informal evaluation that will include meeting the child together with his/her family,. This may involve filling out questionnaires, going through their school work, and day to day interactions with the child.

If determined necessary, a formal assessment will be purchased and administered.

After reviewing the information gathered, our staff will be able to plan educational activities and determine the child’s style of learning at a level that they can understand and ultimately learn from.

Tools for successful learning

We believe the following tools are key to successful learning and development:

– Tutoring
– Proper educational materials for each student.
– Personal guidance and coping techniques for the classroom environment.
– Parental coaching for at home strategies.
– Practice exams for college entrance (please note the Maldonado Foundation does not provide SAT prep).
