Overcoming obstacles

Many students have learning blocks including:

  • Poor comprehension

  • Poor or slow reading

  • Below-average writing skills in creative writing or essay writing

  • Lack of confidence in school

  • Lacking the ability to communicate with clarity through verbal or written communication

 

These learning difficulties can come about for a variety of reasons, including unfortunate life circumstances, family disruptions, learning disabilities as well as bad juvenile attitudes.

 

Your child can become like a boat stuck on a rock and can spend years not progressing. The new curriculum moves at such a pace that it makes it difficult for kids to catch up once they get left behind.

 

I can get them off that rock and moving forward once again.
