Every kid can learn, it's our job to figure out how
Students may experience difficulties in school for a variety of reasons. Exceptional Tutoring’s approach to academic support is unique; all of our staff have earned degrees in Special Education and are experienced teachers. Our tutors possess extensive knowledge in an assortment of topics that may impact academic success. Exceptional Tutors' motto is "Every kid can learn; it's our job to figure out how." Our tutors address the following. . .
Academics - Obviously, we address academic deficits. However, what sets our tutors apart from others is the recognition and understanding of different learning styles and learning disabilities. Each student learns differently; there are as many different learning styles as there are different children (visual learners, auditory learners, kinesthetic learners, etc. . . ).
Social/Emotional/Behavior Factors - Exceptional Tutoring recognizes that other factors may influence academic success (for example - attention problems, test anxiety, difficulty dealing with frustration). Our tutors recognize when academics should be “put on hold” and the focus should shift to effectively dealing with emotional or behavioral challenges. These are teachable moments; our tutors can identify when to mange these difficulties, and we can deal with them productively. We specialize in working with students who face challenges related to neurological disorders, autism, PDD, learning disabilities, and other learning differences.
Executive Functioning - We acknowledge the important relationship between organization and academic success. We teach children and teens effective study methods and time management techniques that will maximize independent study time.
