Student Academic Success Services (SASS)

The Learning Center

The Learning Center (TLC) is one of the programs offered by the department of Student Academic Success Services (SASS) at NSU University School’s Lower School. TLC teachers are experienced in teaching students who benefit from an added layer of support in reading, math or writing. TLC provides students with a double-dose of instruction in the academic area of need, using research-verified instructional strategies in a small group setting. Students receive their initial instruction with their classroom teacher and then receive a second dose of instruction from their TLC teacher in lieu of independent seat work. TLC teachers collaborate with the classroom teacher to share details of student performance and to determine which skills need additional instruction. TLC teachers keep records of progress and communicate that information to parents and classroom teachers.

Participation in TLC can be short-term or long-term based upon individual needs. Cost for TLC services vary based on the number of sessions needed.
