Benefits of Tutoring

  • Remedial assistance to students who are struggling to “keep up” with mainstream academic expectations (students who fall below national benchmarks in literacy and numeracy),
  • Enrichment purposes by academically able students who are seeking to capitalise on their abilities (students who want to excel – selective schools, scholarships etc.),
  • Effective remedial intervention for students with unique learning difficulties helping them achieve their learning outcomes.

 

Our tailored tutoring programs involve:

  • Diagnostic assessment to design each student’s program
  • Setting realistic goals to target student’s needs
  • Building on individual student’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Building student’s self esteem, confidence and enthusiasm to learn further

 

Learning Process

  • Motivational strategies – reward-based learning, sticker system rewards (for younger students), enthusiasm and praise for good work
  • Transparent monitoring of the learning progress – use of log books, running records (to assess a student’s oral reading proficiency), preparation of reports to parents on student’s progress
  • Hands on learning methods – for examples tangible materials, objects, crosswords, computer-based learning strategies
  • Behavioural corrections – positive reinforcement used to correct undesirable behaviour
  • Our literacy and numeracy tutoring programs are based on the latest research-based methods in both mainstream education and Special Education.
  • We pride in using effective empirically-based solutions and Applied Behaviour Analysis to tackle problems in Special Education.
  • We offer computer-based teaching methods to enhance the learning experience.
