How does Omega recognize my student’s needs?
Omega offers a dynamic, comprehensive solution.
We use the Woodcock Johnson IV Tests of Achievement – a nationally- recognized academic assessment also used by the public school system. This assessment is a key tool that helps us identify skill gaps in specific academic areas within reading and math. Omega also administers our exclusive learning style assessment, MyStudyStyle® that determines your student’s primary learning style. Skill gaps often go undetected until grades fall, so be proactive and set up an appointment today.
How much improvement can I expect with my program?
Omega students’ average academic growth is 2 years after completing our 95-hour program.
Omega students’ average academic growth is 2 years and 2 months after completing our 95-hour program. We base our academic growth statistics on our students’ WJIV pre- and post-program assessments. Although every student learns at their own pace, an increased self-confidence is often witnessed early in the program.
What happens in a tutoring session?
Omega Learning® Center understands that each student is unique and as such, our customized program includes a variety of key objectives: remediation, homework, test preparation, study skills, and enrichment.
Omega’s proprietary curriculum, OutpAce®, provides our tutors with enrichment-based supplemental teaching resources that complement your student’s school curriculum and accelerate academic growth.
How much does it cost?
Our tutoring fees are affordable and competitive. Check with your local franchised center for rates.
We offer two payment options: Monthly and Program Prepay. Call individual franchised center for program pricing details.
Do you help with homework? What about skill gaps?
Yes. Omega tutors use your child’s school curriculum and our Outpace® supplemental curriculum to fill skill gaps and complete homework. Based on their assessment results, each student is assigned a program emphasis in the academic area in which they need the most help.
They are also provided with your WJIV and MyStudyStyle® assessments (if applicable). Omega tutors help students complete weekly homework and solidify core academic concepts, performing remediation when needed. Our tutors also have access to our proprietary supplemental curriculum, OutpAce® to solidify core academic concepts.

Many of our instructors also have master’s degrees, special education degrees, gifted certifications, and experience with multi-sensory instruction. Omega Learning® Center tutors must also complete handbook, video, and peer-to-peer training.
What curriculum does Omega use?
