I am a former teacher in Elementary and Junior High Schools. I have worked successfully with students who have had difficulty with Math, Reading, Phonics, Language or English Grammar. The students I worked with were able to catch up with their peers and sometimes surpass them. I have also had success in teaching methods to use when taking tests. This helps the student who gets nervous when the word "test" is mentioned become more successful in taking tests.
I strongly believe any child will improve when they know why they are completing the steps they do in math. Their reading improves when they have a good understanding of phonics. English grammar also has logical rules to follow. In learning why these things are done, the student is not limited to memorizing a set of steps that has no meaning to them.
