"Now is a good time to sign up for regents prep for learners who perhaps did not pass the January regents or just want to get ready for the June regents," Stevey Williams, owner of Williams Way, said. "The program uses study skill and test preparation along with the access Williams Way has to regent's content."
He said a Williams Way tutor will come directly to the student, the student can come to them or can be met in a public location, like the Oswego Public Library.
"We have tutors who specialize in all content, even foreign language, consumer science, the arts," Williams said. "We're flexible, affordable and seeking to eliminate test anxiety and stress with preparation and confidence."
Williams explained Tutoring Services (TS) is the main component of the Williams Way and offers a program to all learners to help them with classes in core subjects.
"As tutors, mentors and role models, we are able to help learners succeed by providing one-on-one or small group tutoring before, during and after school," he said.
Some of the core subjects for which tutoring could be offered is English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Tutoring is based upon tutor availability.
"We primarily service the Oswego County area," Williams said. "My wife Melody and I both are tutors. She's the lead on K-6 and I'm the lead on 7-12. We are available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, but we are flexible, so we also offer weekend and group sessions."
In addition to the component of Tutoring Services, Williams said the Williams Way offers a Learning Strategies Program (LSP), which teaches the skills necessary for the successful learner. Topics covered in the program include organization, listening, learning styles and anti-stress, test-taking strategies, memory and other important areas of focus.
"This personalized attention is something very few students ever experience," he said. "Students are encouraged to enroll in the LS program because it will teach how to identify and improve weaknesses and how utilize strengths in order to the best learner possible."
Williams pointed out the short-term benefits of the LS program are both real and noticeable and students generally see a higher GPA (Grade Point Average) than in previous school years.
