Plan of Hope Development

The ‘Hope’ in this plan stands for Having Only Positive Expectations. This outline will include a list of achievable goals and learning objectives, that will inspire and motivate your child. Through this plan, your child will be able to polish their existing talents, and gain new talents they never knew they could, through hands-on, personalized course content, tutoring, and educational mentoring.

Academic Update

Throughout the execution of the Plan of Hope, we’ll communicate with you at every step of the way. You’ll receive detailed updates on your child’s progress and success. That way, you will know exactly how far your child has come, and what to anticipate next.

Our Programs

Youth Mentoring

We designed our Youth Mentoring Program to empower students, by supporting them with challenging homework, sharing key tools to boost self-esteem and confidence, while providing the students with a safe, supportive environment to study in after school

Academic Tutoring

We designed our Tutoring Program to cater to students’ individual needs, offering both one-on-one and group-based tutoring, to support every child. We help students fully grasp concepts, understand how to apply key study skills to their subjects, and utilize various methods to ensure students meet their education goals

"My daughter has been enrolled in A Vision to Empower since she started 1st Grade. Every year she becomes more confident in her studies(ELA &Science). When the pandemic hit I was worried but thanks to A Vision to Empower remote sessions she grew two reading levels over the summer break. I’m forever grateful and thankful to the staff and founder for always putting their best foot forward regardless of the situation."
