What can I get help with?
I have attended several workshops and seminars in tutoring students who have severe learning disabilities such as extreme ADHD, Discalcula and Dysgraphia. I am well trained in understanding how the students behave and think, and furthermore tweak my tutoring accordingly. One solution does not fit all.
I currently tutor students as young as 6 in grade 1 with severe learning disabilities to mature students at the age of 44 who are upgrading their technical trades program.
What if I have a learning disability?
I will work closely with you and after you are more comfortable with the content, we will do sample mock exams that are very similar to the tests you get at school.
Mock exams are timed and marked according to the professor's marking schemes. You are then graded on them. Questions range from Multiple Choice Questions, Short Answers, and Long Answers.
