During these unprecedented times, I am able to fully accommodate all tutoring and therapies safely online.
Tutoring: teaching "what to learn"
A TUTOR teaches students various academic materials and subject matter and helps the student with homework assignments, projects, and papers as well as previewing and reviewing.
Educational Therapy: teaching "how to learn"
An EDUCATIONAL THERAPIST teaches, coaches, and mentors clients from a wide range of learning disabilities and learning differences, in addition to providing assessment and intervention in language processing, motivation, self-esteem, social skills, and overall executive functioning. The goal in their treatment plan is to develop a sense of self-governing independence, and understanding the correlation between learning and their social and emotional functioning.
Search and Teach
A program to find children susceptible to learning failure and to provide educational intervention before failure takes place. The program uses specific methods developed to counter difficulties by establishing and strengthening neuropsychological skills essential for improvement in reading, spelling, and writing.
Strengthens intrinsic and extrinsic directionality, teaches identification of sounds/symbols, builds concise verbal communication, and develops strategies for reading comprehension.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Learn to understand, speak, read, and write in English.
Study and prepare for the six subject area tests in Language Arts, Writing; Language Arts, Reading; Language Arts, Essay; Social Studies; Science; and Mathematics.
"Carole has been successful in helping children fill the gaps in their learning and also at discovering how students learn."
— Connie, Teacher
"I don't know where I'd be or what I would do without you! I probably would have failed math and been on an IPP program and not getting awards and academic honours in school like I have the last few years."
-- Mia, Educational Therapy student
"I always appreciate your professionalism, patience, and practicality in tutoring. It is not at all easy to learn a foreign language but your methods of teaching always motivate me to keep on being more familiar and competent with the English language."
"Our son was removed from the IPP program after only four months with Carole."
— Antje, Parent
— Sylvia, ESL student from Germany
