Tutoring Services

Individual teachers are available to provide academic instruction at no charge to families. Teachers are New York State Certified in all subject areas and work through the Board of Cooperative Education Services (BOCES) of Monroe County, based in Fairport, New York. BOCES Tutors are at The Healing Connection Partial Hospitalization Program Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. -11:30 a.m. Our BOCES tutors have work experience with junior high and high school students who have had eating disorders.

The BOCES Teachers provide parallel curriculum between The Healing Connection and the student's home school. Teachers (through the onsite BOCES Coordinator) coordinate regularly between The Healing Connection staff, home guidance counselors, subject teachers, and parents, to help meet the ongoing academic (as well as emotional) needs of the child. The parent/guardian need to provide approval to grant the BOCES coordinator and the BOCES teachers to contact a child's school district (via phone, e-mail, fax) to coordinate tutoring. The Healing Connection Office Manager will speak with parents about the availability of tutoring during the initial phone screen in preparation for intake evaluation and possible program admission.
