Brainspring tutoring services are tailored to meet the needs of each student. Many programs use a multisensory approach for effective, productive learning that is especially effective for those diagnosed with dyslexia. We provide one on one, structured tutoring programs.
Research demonstrates the direct correlation between a child developing strong phonological awareness skills and becoming a highly successful reader. Students are engaged in a variety of age and skill appropriate activities, using a multisensory approach, designed to help them hear sounds and patterns in words.
Using a multisensory approach, Brainspring tutors address basic math facts and processes, the interpretation and solving of “word problems,” and higher level concepts such as decimals, fractions, and percentages. Brainspring also boasts tutors who specialize in advanced mathematics such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus.
Reading - Phonics First®
Based on Orton-Gillingham methodology, Phonics First ensures the mastery of reading concepts learned in kindergarten through 5th grade. Phonics First is an accredited tutoring program by the International Dyslexia Association and IMSLEC.
Reading - Structures
This program reviews basic phonics instruction in a more sophisticated manner and also includes instruction in Greek and Latin roots which are present in 65 percent of the words in reading material above a 6th grade level.
Brainspring tutors use visualization, Reciprocal Teaching, and a variety of other multisensory approaches to help students understand different texts.
Tutors focus on the organization of thoughts and ideas, pre-writing planning, sentence formation, development of topic sentences, supporting details and conclusions. More advanced writers go on to develop these basic ideas into various forms of essay writing.
Study Skills/Test Prep
Brainspring provides the necessary tools to teach students note-taking, test-taking, time management, organizational skills, and study methods through a multisensory approach that will enable them to study and complete tests more efficiently.
Realistic test experiences are essential to achieving success on standardized tests. During an eight-session course, students are prepped in both test taking strategies specific to the ACT or SAT and in content areas. One-on-one instruction allows Brainspring tutors to concentrate on the area in which the student needs the most assistance. All Brainspring tutors hold degrees in the subject area they are teaching.
Aside from providing specialized remedial instruction, Brainspring is also able to provide homework support. Be it Algebra II or Physics, Brainspring tutors have the expertise and experience to assist in all subject areas.
