FAQs

After My School is a new age Education Company. Through a rigorous process of research into learning processes and systems, we have developed tools and processes which identifies gaps in the conceptual understanding of students from Class 1-10 and then sets forth a time bound action plan for bridging those gaps for the child. We have developed tools which accurately measure where the child is lacking in conceptual clarity, and then we develop plans for upgrading the conceptual clarity of the child.
Our process starts with a 3-day Free Demo Class. In the 3-day Free Demo Class, we take your child through some assessment modules to help us understand where the gaps are in your child. We gain an understanding of the gaps in concepts in your child, and this helps us develop a time-bound action plan for the development of the child.
At the Demo Class, our well-trained tutors spend 90 minutes each day with your child and administer an assessment test. The report of the Assessment test is shared with you, so that you can fully understand and appreciate the gaps in your child’s concepts. We then work out an action plan for the development of the child.
No. You need not pay us anything for the Demo Classes. We offer this service free of cost to you, so that you can firsthand experience our tools and methodologies, and fully understand, by way of a standardized Assessment Report, the gaps in your child’s conceptual clarity.
For a child to do well academically in his/her present class, and in future classes, it is very important that the concepts that he/she has learnt so far are crystal clear to him/her. Most of the exam stress and poor grades happen because of lack of conceptual clarity. If we can assess the gaps in the conceptual clarity, and then work out an action plan to bridge those gaps through regular After School Work of Homework/Revision/Projects, then the child will develop; and the stresses like pre-exam stress, poor grade stress, unable to cope up stress etc. will go away.
The tutor helps the student plan his/her daily After School Work in the ASK (After School worK) diary. The input for the same is taken from the parents, the school diary (if any), student himself/herself, and any carry-forward work from the previous days. The tutor then guides the student to complete the tasks one-by-one, on the basis of prioritization- homework (including revision) first, followed by regular revision of lessons (without homework). Projects related work is planned day-wise and taken up accordingly, along with other tasks.
Parents are advised to fill the ASK Diary for the day before the student is sent to the class. As schools send the After School Work related information to parents directly, parents’ supervision in this matter ensures that no work is missed out.
In the event of parent being unable to fill the ASK Diary, the tutor will depend on the inputs available with the student when he/she attends the class, like school diary and students’ notes/recollection.
We have classes each day (Mon to Sat) which last between 60 to 90 minutes per day, depending on the After School Work needed to be completed by the Student. The student is sent back at the completion of ALL the After School Work for a day OR 90 minutes- whichever is EARLIER. In case all the work is not completed in 90 minutes, the tutor will make a note in the ASK diary for the student to finish it at home (if it is needed to be done the same day) or postponed to another day (if there is time available for its completion). The beginning of the class time is the time of the slot chosen by the student and NOT the time that the student has come to the class. In case a student comes late, the time available for After School Work would be reduced by that much time, unless the tutor is able to make exception on a particular day based on the capacity of the next class.
Younger children are sometimes less attentive and need additional attention of the tutor, but, at the same time, the amount of After School Work needed to be done by them is also lesser. Our tutors are trained to give every child “Just as much as needed assistance” and slowly teach the child to plan their work themselves and to work on the plan they have made.
The ASK system is not designed for classroom study in a manner- of one teacher teaching a similar group of students in a classroom using a blackboard. It is designed to allow each child to do his/her After School Work independently, and to be able to take help/guidance from the tutor as, and when, needed. So the teacher-student ratio is not really a good measure for this system. However, on an average, one tutor will be handling anywhere between 6 to 10 children at one point in time, depending on the tutor’s convenience and comfort.
