Learning Support Programs

LEARN ABOUT OUR 2-DAYS A WEEK,  IN-PERSON LEARNING SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR REGISTERED HOMESCHOOL FAMILIES HERE!

 

We provide VIRTUAL PRIVATE TUTORING IN THE FOLLOWING SUBJECT AREAS: 

READING COMPREHENSION 

Using specialized reading programs such as Lindamood-Bell Visualizing

and Verbalizing, we focus on helping children strengthen reading comprehension skills. We have observed that many schools do not have adequate time to teach reading comprehension skills. These skills must be taught and students need practice to develop them. We also help new readers(K-3) with decoding and fluency. Phonics is taught based on the response of the child. Not all children learn to read phonetically. We customize strategies and use programs according to  the child's needs.

We do not qualify to work with students with dyslexia or dysgraphia. But please feel free to contact us for more information on where you can get help for these disabilities. 

VOCABULARY 

 A key component of reading comprehension and writing is vocabulary. Our program teaches vocabulary to all of its reading students and we stress vocabulary in Mathematics. We use the national vocabulary list for age group and integrate students' classroom reading books for vocabulary development. 

WRITING

Writing is essential to effective communications. The need for this skill has not disappeared with the advancement of technology. It has become even more critical. Every child in a school setting should know how to write a simple essay by the end of the grammar years. If they are going to be successful in secondary school or plan to apply for entry into programs like specialized camps, specialized schools, scholarship programs or internships, then they must write an essay.  YouTube videos and Vlogs that flow well are first planned and written out. Good writers know how to produce persuasive communications media. At Seed2Trees we understand this. Let us teach your child how to be an effective communicator through writing. 

MATHEMATICS 

 Using Singapore Math as our foundational math system, we help students struggling with mathematics to overcome those challenges through engaging math games, drills, and word problems. In our 2-days/week In-person program as well as our private sessions children learn processing skills and heuristics. Children in Singapore learn these skills starting in Kindergarten. Singapore students consistently rank top in the world in math. Adapting this model takes more than just changing textbooks. At Seed2Trees we invest in learning and understanding the whole process that Singapore adapted from Dr. Jerome Bruner, an American Psychologist!  Our mission is to remove the fear of math and show our students that math is all around us. We seek to expose our younger students to all types of math including Algebra and Geometry. 

HOMEWORK HELP

 Homework can sometimes become overwhelming for students. After hours in the classroom, they may lose steam and need support working through long homework assignments. We provide that support for parents who may not have time to monitor their children's homework as needed. Contact us if you would like homework assistance for your child.
