Our on-site tutoring is usually done in our office. The system we use was designed for one-on-one tutoring. That means one tutor works with just one student at a time.
A dyslexic student must get at least 2 hours of one-on-one tutoring each week in order to close the skills gap. More than 2 hours a week is fine, but less than that will not work.
A tutoring session should not last longer than an hour. But instead of two 1-hour sessions, you could do three 45-minute sessions or even four 30-minute sessions.
Remote Online Tutoring
We also take remote tutoring over the internet.
Sometimes there is no qualified dyslexia specialist in your area, or a family’s schedule requires more flexibility. We can offer the same quality one-on-one tutoring online.
In general, we offer this service to students over the age of 10. If you have a younger child who is highly attentive and focused, online tutoring may be an option for them as well.
Online tutoring should take place in a distraction-free, quiet area of your home. Please ensure that other siblings, pets, etc. are occupied in another location during the tutoring session.
You will need:
- A high-speed internet connection
- A computer with a webcam, Chromebooks and Tablets are not compatible for Remote Online Tutoring
- Download Zoom from www.zoom.us
- Headphones are required for the student who receives regular online tutoring, but if a student is occasionally doing online tutoring, it is optional.
Remote tutoring can be successful for many students. However, young children and those students who struggle with ADD/ADHD or other attention issues do best with in person tutoring.
