Tutoring

 

Tutoring services are offered by school psychologists and special educators to address skill deficits in academic areas including reading, writing, mathematics, and study skills. The individual and small group instruction is multi-sensory, structured, and sequential. An individualized program is developed, focused on multiple intelligence (using strengths and improving areas of weakness). High interest, computer-based programs are utilized.
