ACCESSIBLE LEARNING FOR ALL!

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.

UNDERSTANDING LEARNING DIFFERENCES

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.

TAKING A PERSONALIZED APPROACH

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. 

SUPORTING STUDENTS OF ALL AGES

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. 

SUBJECT MATTER REINFORCEMENT

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. 

STUDY HABITS

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. 

HOMEWORK HELP

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

ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERACY SPECIALIST

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.
 

CURRICULUM ACCOMODATIONS

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. 

CONFIDENCE BUILDING

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.
