Parents may find themselves in a scramble to get their children tutors because first quarter grades call for it. Many times students’ scores in school are not apparent until this time of year.
Some of my students started with me in the later part of the fall season. Naturally, I spend part of my tutorial sessions getting them caught up with their scholastics, while there is a need to focus on the new material as well.
My tutoring in McLean VA, Vienna VA, Arlington VA, other parts of Northern VA, Bethesda MD, and Potomac MD has been challenging and rewarding at the same time. Some of my learners have been through FaceTime, Skype and other Internet software. Most of my students had not seen success with other tutors; this was often due to their tutors’ lack of advanced training in the field of education and psychology. After many years of addressing learners specific educational needs, I can see how my masters degrees, one in special education K-12, and the other in psychological services, have been essential in my applying appropriate teaching methods.

Tutors with proven track records who need specific training to address students with complex learning issues are not easily found in communities; ADHD, Dyslexia, and Executive Function Disorder are some of the challenges that need to be addressed by them.
