Individual support is available for students with dyslexia, language-based learning disabilities, or for those needing extensive remediation. Tutoring is done 1:1 in 60 minute sessions using
OG and Structured Literacy strategies.
The lessons are individually tailored to the learning needs of each student. In the first meeting, a variety of informal assessments are done to determine the exact skill set of the student. Based on this, lessons are developed for the particular needs of that student. Many literacy skills are addressed during each hour, for example: connections between sound to print and print to sound; blending; word work; reading (words, phrases, sentences, connected text); spelling.
The in-person tutoring experience is invaluable. To ensure that everyone is safe there will be the following measures: 1) Mask wearing is mandatory for all (tutor, parent, student). 2) Hand sanitizer at entry/exit. 3) Each student will have their own 'box' of resources (ex: pencil, markers, notebook etc). 4) Table, chair, touch points disinfected before/after each student. 5) There will be no lesson when a person is exhibiting COVID symptoms, has been in contact with an infected person, and/or has traveled outside of Ontario within 14 days of the session. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
