FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1. My child is having difficulty in school. Should I have my child tested?

The more you know about how your child learns the better. We recommend having your child be tested as soon as soon as you notice your child is experiencing problems so tutoring may start right away. If you would like more information about how to get your child tested please go to the "Parent Resource" section.

2. How long will it take for my child to get caught up?

How long it takes a student to catch up varies depending on the student's learning speed, learning style, and how well they retain information. Our tutors work at the fastest comfortable rate for their students. Students struggling to retain information will take longer to catch up. The individualized pace of our instruction, coupled with the multisensory methods we employ, ensures each student maximizes their learning potential, making for the quickest catch up period.

How fast students catch up also depends on how much tutoring they receive. We usually recommend students receive a minimum of two hours per week.

3. What if my child needs subject support during a tutoring hour even though they come for Orton Gillingham tutoring?

If your child is working on something at school that they need help with, we would be happy to help them and work on whatever it is in to the tutoring hour.

4. Will my child be with the same tutor every time?

Ideally, students are scheduled with the same tutor for each session.

5. How can I support my child at home?

When the child is settled into the program, the parents have a choice as to whether or not they would like to have the program binder taken home each session to reinforce and review what has already been taught. We often recommend this with children who have difficulty retaining information. We do want to stress, however, that this is a choice and it is entirely up to you.

6. Do you accept ESL children?

At this time, we do not accept ESL children.
