Queens, NY — Khan’s Tutorial held their annual Leadership Training Session this week at their headquarters, located at KT Sutphin. During the week of training, top Khan’s Tutorial Instructors learn how to help better serve the students in their respective branches. Furthermore, they learn key principles in teaching, leadership, and management. With Common Core State Exams, Regents Exams, and the SATs approaching, trainees are taught how to increase the quality of learning to ensure all students are prepared. Khan’s Tutorial values being a company in the community that can answer questions and offer mentorship to students and parents.
“Accepting the challenge of being the new Common Core Program Manager is very exciting and we have a lot prepared for our students. We have already administered our first round of diagnostic exams to get our students into the testing mindset. My expectations are high for this year considering last year, we had 1,031 students who scored a perfect 4/4 on their state exams. We are implementing new things this year to help increase that number, for example, we have updated our Khan’s Tutorial report cards to resemble the ones students receive in their schools,” says Israt Hoque, Khan’s Tutorial’s new Common Core Program Manager.
“This year’s group of trainees were very excited to learn and grow. As leaders, I can see them all being very active in the lives of the students and parents in their respective branches. Many 10th and 11th graders are returning to Khan’s Tutorial in preparation for the upcoming spring SAT’s. This training session will be especially helpful to this new wave of students who are enrolling. This is a group that’s very dedicated and determined to finding the best way to serve their community,” said Tasneem Imam Khan, MPH (Columbia University Master’s Degree), Director of High School Achievement program.
“Every year, we hold biannual training for notable and rising leaders at Khan’s Tutorial who have gone above and beyond their expected role and responsibilities in their current position. During our rigorous week-long training session, young leaders learn how to supervise large teams, motivate teammates, increase test scores, foster parental engagement, mentor students and inspire them to surpass their academic potential,” said Dr. Ivan Khan, President and CEO of Khan’s Tutorial.
