I'm glad you found me. Before I commit to a family and a learner I like to meet and see if we have a bond. I think its important for everyone to feel comfortable, since learning can be challenging. The idea of obtaining a tutor for some kids, often can be a drag. My aim is to have the learner feel comfortable enough to want me to come and help them learn. Each learner has strengths and weaknesses. It's important for the tutor to utilize the strength to facilitate the weakness.
I use motivational systems to promote success. It's all about baby steps to the ultimate end goal. Short goals are set along the way to provide immediate reward to the learner; offering a sense of confidence and hey ," I can do it". With parent involvement combined with the student and tutor we will all make sure we are on the same page to provide maximum growth in all environments.
Ultimately it is important to get the learner involved, find out what there preferences are and use those items to motivate them to learn the skill(s).
Being a parent of two, I understand being the only the advocate for your child. I have worked with learners with special needs for the past ten years in school settings and home environments.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
