Children develop and learn at different rates. Some have difficulty learning to read, write and process and retain important information and may need the assistance of a Special Education Tutor. Other students learn more easily, but may require more behavioural orientated strategies to help them to better focus in a sensory stimulating learning environment.
At Treetops I offer a range of special education services designed to meet a wide range of needs.
I have the experience needed to work with a diverse spectrum of learning challenges. Students with ADHD, and even those with diagnosed emotional disabilities, can benefit from my one-on-one interactions as a skilled tutor. I can also improve educational outcomes for students with Dyslexia, Dysgraphia as well as those with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Students are far more likely to improve and succeed in their learning if they feel secure, confident and happy and their individual needs are being met. As a Special Education Tutor, I recognize this and tailor my teaching approach accordingly. I am compassionate and have experience working with a wide range of learning abilities.
I have an extensive track record of working with students of all ages and ability levels. From Pre-K to Adult Grad. I have worked with several Grade 12 students and assisted them to improve their grades through their final year of High School.
If your child is struggling in a particular subject area, I can provide the learning reinforcement needed for them to process. By reviewing the material over and over again, using techniques and strategies designed to support their specific learning needs, they have a better chance of retaining the necessary information to successfully move forward.
While helping students with their work and methods of working, I provide tips and techniques to help them establish successful study habits that are suitable to their ability level. It is important students develop strong study skills as early on as possible. However, older students with learning disabilities can still learn new ways of improving their study skills. I can assist with implementing new methods of studying. And advise on ways that studying in the home can be improved.
Students with learning challenges can get easily frustrated when working on homework assignments. That frustration can cause them to lose interest in their work. I can keep students motivated through on-going and supportive encouragement. When a student begins to complete homework assignments correctly more often - without help - they feel more confident within themselves, school in general and grades improve. Study groups and homework clubs are frequently organized throughout the academic
I provide students with guidance and productive solutions when facing literacy challenges. I am committed to ensuring that the importance and enjoyment of literacy and the English language are accessed by all children and youth, regardless of their ability level. I have worked with many international students whose first language is not English, helping them to build on their verbal and written English skills. For both academic and social purposes.
If students require an alternative curriculum, better suited to their level of understanding and ability. I can make those accommodations. I am very familiar with IEP’s (An Individualized Education Program) and can make sure that the students curriculum aligns to requirements established by the child’s school, distance learning program or parents preferences.
The personal attention a student with learning disabilities receives from a tutor can do wonders to bolster their self-esteem. With every academic achievement, even a small one, they feel more confident in their academic abilities. Tutoring is about more than the academics, it is about helping students to become better students and enjoy learning. Encouraging them to be more positive about learning in the future.
Effective tutoring for students with special needs requires a compassionate and understanding tutor. It is important that tutoring takes place in a location that is comfortable for the student. Treetops provide the right learning environment and the right tutor, there is no reason students with learning disabilities cannot excel in all areas of their lives.
