One on One Tutoring

According to the mentalhelp.net website, there are four strategies that can be used with students who suffer from an intellectual disability, but it can also be used for students who suffer from anxiety, and autism as well. The four strategies are the following: the first strategy is to break down learning tasks into small steps. Second is to modify the teaching approach. Third, use visual aids. Lastly, provide direct and immediate feedback.

Here at Options for College Succes, we partner a student with one of our tutors to meet these four strategies. By meeting individually with our tutors, our students learn how to develop studying skills, build coping skills during midterms and finals, and learn his or her school work at a pace that works best for each student. Our tutors break down the school work in small steps so that our students are able to understand the material by modifying their teaching approach suited for each student. Each of our classrooms has a whiteboard on which both our students and tutors use as a visual aid to put into practice what the students are learning. In the end, our students create a relationship with our tutors which helps them get immediate feedback on how they are doing in their learning process as well as provide positive direct advice and opinions on how to improve their weaknesses or strengthenĀ their strengths.

Take a moment to help us reach our goal of being able to help out a student with a scholarship so that he or she can benefit from our one on one tutoring sessions that are adequately fit for each individual. Thank you again for all of your support!
