What is Academic Tutoring?
Academic tutoring is targeted instruction around particular academic areas. This one-on-one tailored approach helps students figure out where the breakdowns are happening and teaches the skills and strategies to repair and avoid those breakdowns in the future.
Not only does academic tutoring help students improve subject-specific skills and raise grades, it also promotes problem solving skills, teaches study strategies, and raises awareness of how their brain works as an individual.
Who needs help?
Any student that feels like they are not performing to their desired level in school. These academic challenges can be due to several reasons:
- A specific learning disability that impacts their performance
- Difficulty mastering material due to presentation or pacing of the information at school
- Processing challenges such as limited working memory or slow processing speed
