Our reading tutor works with Dyslexia
Tutoring services can make all the difference in a child’s education. While it may seem obvious if someone has Dyslexia, it can actually go undetected for years in children without their parents or guardians noticing. Because it is a complex that doesn’t present itself in a way that’s visible to others, people unfamiliar with the symptoms may not know what to look for. As many as one in five young students experience a persistent difficulty reading despite good intelligence, motivation, and schooling. Students who struggle with reading, writing, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary growth at their grade level could have degrees of dyslexia. Working extensively with Dyslexic students, our reading tutor is trained in the Orton-Gillingham method and can spot common signs of Dyslexia. Knowing about this problem has transformed students that some people thought were slow learners into bright pupils when they have the chance to realize their full potential.
Tutoring alternative schooling students
Not every student attends public schools. Some go to private schools with a personalized focus area or are home schooled. And others come as foreign exchange students or are degree-seeking international ESL students. These students may face additional challenges because they are not familiar with the traditional public school system like many of their peers are. Whether they’re excelling or need a little extra help, our tutors are standing by to offer assistance. We welcome students of all backgrounds at Gold Star Tutoring and work alongside parents, guardians, and schools to provide the best possible learning experience for each and every one of our students.
Standardized test preparation assistance
The SAT, ACT, AP tests, and college placement exams are important and can greatly influence a student’s career path. Whether a student is struggling in a particular area or excels and wants to do the best they possibly can, our one-on-one tutoring can help. Tutors are familiar with SAT/ACT prep as well as the ALEKS Placement Exam that many colleges and universities around the country have adopted. Our goal is to assist students in any way that we can, so they don’t just get by; they thrive!
