Academic Support

Our academic support system is made up of the following layers:

Reading Groups (Grades 1 - 4)

We offer 45-minute time slots for students to come and sit in a Zoom session with their classmates specific to their grade.

Students can come see friends and get their daily reading done! BASEC @ Burbank homework teachers will be there to set students up for success in their reading, answer questions, and time reading.

Available free of charge. Sign-ups are sent to BASEC families via email each week.

Virtual Library (Grades 5 - 6)

We offer 45-minute time slots for students to come and sit in a Zoom session with their classmates specific to their grade and team.

BASEC @ Chenery teachers are present to moderate and answer any questions for work students have been assigned. This closely mimics the type of support students receive daily while at BASEC.

Available free of charge. Sign-ups are sent to BASEC families via email each week.

Small Group (Grades 5 - 6)

Small group support places a limited number of students (no more than 5) in a Zoom meeting with one of our BASEC teachers. Groups meet for 45 minutes.

This option is currently limited to 5th and 6th grade students. $200/month.

Virtual Tutoring (Grades 1 - 4)

One-on-one virtual tutoring is available for all subjects.

Our tutoring sessions incorporate key elements of executive function coaching and organization support as well as content and skill review.

45-minute tutoring sessions are available on weekdays.

Once a student and tutor are matched, we will create an individualized plan based on your student's specific needs.

This option is available for 1st through 4th grade students. $300/10 sessions.

Virtual Tutoring (Grades 5 - 8)

One-on-one virtual tutoring is available in all four core subjects.

Our tutoring sessions incorporate key elements of executive function coaching and organization support.

45-minute tutoring sessions are available weekdays at 4:00pm and after.

Once a student and tutor are matched, we will create an individualized plan based on your student's specific needs.

This option is available for 5th through 8th grade students. $300/10 sessions.

To participate in the small group option (Grades 5 - 6) or one-on-one tutoring (Grades 5-8),
email Danielle.Greene@belmontbasec.org for availability and next steps.

To participate in one-on-one tutoring (Grades 1 - 4), email Ellen.McEllin@belmontbasec.org.

BASEC Branch (Grades 7 - 8)

We are continuing our BASEC Branch program for our 7th and 8th graders. Branch teachers will be reaching out to their students with scheduled time slots that the Branch groups will be able to meet virtually over a Zoom meeting to discuss assignments and content support. We hope this closely mimics the environment our Branch students are used to, giving them direct access to their Branch teacher and their peers. Visit the Branch page to learn more.
