Having recently retired as a licensed Davis® Dyslexia facilitator, I am continuing the tutoring side of my business parttime. My passion remains to help families navigate their way to find helpful resources.
Finding the right match of instruction for one who is struggling in school, but is obviously intelligent, is a process. In all cases, the first step is the same: Research. This essential step must be completed in order to make good decisions to best match the welfare of one's child or the adult seeking services.
The two most important areas to research are:
1. The Program–Does it match well with your child's learning style? Are your child's strengths, personality, and interests taken into account? Do the activities allow creative thought or are they repetitious and incorporate drill? What successes are produced?
2. The Educator–What level of skills and training has been completed? How well does the educator's personality connect with your child? What philosophies does the educator hold? How many years of experience?
