In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Many of my dyslexic students also suffer from ADHD. These students with ADHD learn best with carefully structured lessons.I would also explain to the student what I want them to learn in the current lesson. Next I'd mention to the student how he or she should behave during the lesson.
Provide an advance organizer. I also use templates to help organize the student.
Prepare student for the lesson by summarizing the order of activities planned. I'd also remind the student for example, that a review of the previous lesson will be followed by new information.
I have been successfully teaching dyslexia and ADHD students for over five years using the Barton Method. The The Barton Reading & Spelling System is an Orton-Gillingham influenced approach to reading and spelling. All the latest scientific, independent, replicated reading research supports the Orton-Gillingham sequence and methodology as “best practices” when teaching reading to students with dyslexia.
