Filling the Gap Educational Services
Overcoming learning gaps as a team
K-12 Curriculum, Consultation, Advocacy & Personalized Tutoring
We help students overcome learning gaps
Many students experience curricular and learning gaps as they progress through K-12. These gaps are especially difficult to overcome in linear subjects, such as math and reading, and filling them early can alleviate academic struggles later in middle and high school. If your student finds learning challenging it may be due to gaps in previous skills or concepts rather than the subject matter. This is where we come in – guiding students, parents, and schools with simple strategies, proactive best practices, and curriculum recommendations.
How can we help you navigate these uncertain educational times?
We design tailored lessons to fill any gap – ready to use for teachers or parents. Get a personalized plan, select from a menu of common topics, or tell us what gap you need filled. All lessons are written in-house and include exclusive access to Filling the Gap resources and activities.
Are you already working with a tutor – or are you a tutor looking for more resources? We can help with specialized diagnostics, skill sequencing, lesson implementation suggestions, enrichment activities, educational report writing, and virtual learning ideas.
Now more than ever, it's critical that we all work together to help our children learn. At Filling the Gap, we work to support the needs of your child and the entire family through conversation, communication, and representation.
Filling the Gap offers a range of tutoring services, including individual or small group lessons focusing on skill and concept development, personalized diagnostic assessments, targeted essay assistance, Wilson reading, and remote learning assistance during Covid-19.
Why do we fill gaps?
We aim to completely fill gaps and seal the holes. We empower students with both the confidence and the skills to succeed in what they are currently learning. To help educators, we provide resources, such as diagnostic tools and personalized lesson plans, to fill gaps for their students. Why do we do this? Because we believe finding gaps is the critical missing piece. Students should understand the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of what they're learning – more than just ‘how to do’ something – and really comprehend the material, even if that means backtracking. Some may call this solidifying a foundation, but it's more than that. Filling gaps leads to true learning, greater confidence, and measurable success by educating the whole student.
