Training and Methods for Success

John Toker has a Mater's Degree in
Education with a Concentration in
Learning Disabilities K-12, and a
Master's Degree in Psychological
Services with a Concentration in
Counseling; he holds a Post
Graduate Professional License to
teach in general education and
Learning Disabilities K-12 settings;
he has taught in Fairfax County Public
Schools, FCPS, Montgomery County
Public Schools, MCPS, Arlington
County public and private schools.
John applies his skills from, formerly,
working as a licensed
psychotherapist with his experience
as a learning specialist. Teaching
methods are customized to each
student's learning style. Test prep in
math, science, reading, and writing
are part of sessions. Mentorship with
experienced coaching methods is a
core part of the tutoring.

People who have obstacles in their
learning process have unrecognized
alternative ways of comprehending
school work. They are tutored on how
to identify and apply their academic
strengths toward their scholastic gaps.
A team effort among parents,
students, myself, and other
professionals is key to success with
the tutoring school process.

LD Just Means Learn
, written by
John Toker, reflects
autism, dyslexia, ADHD,
other learning issues, and
physical obstacles related
to multiple sclerosis, and
cerebral palsy; cases are
based off his tutor
experiences with students.
It includes characters that
are based off actual tutor
cases, whereby people
surpassed or were
blocked by learning
issues. It’s written like a
novel so as to allow for
confidentiality, and to
focus on the passion that
gets people through the
strains that are associated
with academics, rather
than a step-by-step
teaching methodology or
text manual for tutors.


"All true teaching is
building skills for
independent thought."

"Among the shattered
glass, there are diamonds
that must be preserved for
those who feel broken."
