Learning Support Team members include the Learning and Literacy Specialist, the Litercacy Specialist for Grades 3-5, the School Counselor, and Head of Lower and Middle School. We believe that the success of a student's educational experience can be maximized by using teaching techniques that closely match the student's learning modalities. The Learning Support Program is designed to provide support and enrichment of the individual student's learning using a collaborative process involving families, teachers, and/or other experts to identify and address children's learning needs individually and in the classroom.
Greene Street Friends School has a robust, fee-based tutoring program which is individualized. Families who are interested in tutoring services for remediation or enrichment are encouraged to contact our Learning Specialist. In some instances, tutoring will be recommended or required by the school to ensure a student’s academic progress. For specific referrals, contact the Head of Lower and Middle School or the Learning Specialist.
Free educational services are provided for students at Greene Street Friends School through Elwyn, a non-profit organization that works as a contractor for the School District to provide support services for students. At Greene Street, Elwyn currently provides an Educational Psychologist one day per week, a school counselor one day per week, a reading and math tutor for two half days per week, and a speech pathologist one half-day per week. Families may request Elwyn services through our Learning Specialist, and faculty will, on occasion, recommend Elwyn services to families for students in their care. All inquiries about these services should be directed to our Learning Specialist.
