The Center for Continuing Education provides one-on-one, customized tutoring to individuals from Kindergarten to 12th grade in any academic subject needing to be strengthened. Participants can attend (1) one or (2) two hour sessions with a qualified Academic Tutor in a schedule that best fits their availability. The program includes pre and post assessments along with daily after-session reports for parents to be kept updated with their child’s progression.

For more information, please contact our Academics Office at conted@tamuk.edu or 361.593.2857.

Pre-assessments are the first steps in registering your child(ren) into the tutoring program and are utilized to gauge the participants understanding of the subject area tutoring is being requested for. The assessments are created by using the standards set through the Texas Higher Education Agency for each specific subject area and grade level. Results from the assessments help to select the appropriate Academic Tutor for your child(ren) and also in creating the customized lesson plans that are focused in the specific components needing improvement. Pre-Assessment take about 45 minutes and a separate assessment is required for each subject area.

Pre-assessments are included in the overall cost of the tutoring program and administered with no upfront cost to the participant. However, for individuals that choose not to continue into the tutoring program after the pre-assessment has been administered, a $25.00 fee will be charged*. This fee will also be assessed for individuals that are a no call/no show to their scheduled assessment.

To begin the registration process for your child(ren), contact the Center for Continuing Education at 361-593-2857 or email at conted@tamuk.edu to schedule their pre-assessment today!

*Participants are allowed one (1) reschedule at no cost. The $25.00 pre-assessment fee will be charged for any reschedules after that and will be required to be paid before the start of the assessment.
