Frequently Asked Questions
What is the student to tutor ratio?
Our ratio for the Barton Lab is one-to-one tutoring. This allows each student to have an individualized lesson plan and the tutors undivided attention.
How many hours per week are required for my child?
Susan Barton has stated that in order for this program to truly be successful a student must dedicate two hours a week. The times and hours are up to you and your student. The more hours you can devote to tutoring, the faster the gap will close on your child’s weaknesses.
Do you need a formal diagnosis for tutoring?
No, but it is recommended. A diagnosis from a neuropsychologist, psychologist, and or clinical is a lifelong document. This will help you and your child know exactly what his or her strengths and weaknesses are and will ensure an individualized plan for accommodations.
What are our tutoring fees?
The cost of the evaluation is $250.00, and for a pack of 8 Barton Lab sessions is $390.00.
Approximately how long is this program?
The Susan Barton Reading and Spelling System is made up of 10 levels, each level has a variety of different lessons, some taking longer than others. Each student must begin at Level 1, regardless of age. It takes about 2 years to complete all 10 levels. Since every child learns at a different pace, some students may take longer than others to complete the full program.
