A Numeracy and Literacy Guided Tutor Program (Students in kindergarten to grade 8)
The program works by using trained volunteer tutors from different diverse backgrounds who will work one-on-one with both parents and children on:
- recognizing comfortable learning styles, learning strengths, and study habits which assist children in better learning
- assisting children and youth with numeracy and literacy skills which need further development
- helping them experience the joy of learning and increase self-esteem
Children must have a diagnosis of a learning disability and/or ADHD only, as per an IPRC.
To build the skills parents needs to effectively encourage their child/youth in emerging literacy and numeracy skills.
How it Works:
Grade 3 to Grade 8 teachers refer children who they believe will benefit from the one-on-one support. The program coordinator then matches families with volunteers who meets once or twice a week in a public setting to conduct learning activities to reach the goals of the program.
Children/Youth participating in the program will:
- benefit from one-on-one tutoring by a trained volunteer;
- experience hands-on activities that build upon their skills in an interactive environment; and
- build self-confidence in their academics
Parents will engage children/youth in their learning by:
- learning techniques to best support their child’s learning skills;
- work with their child and tutor to develop literacy and numeracy skills; and
- enjoy participating in their child’s learning
Teachers referring child/youth to the program will:
- let parents know that the program is available to help;
- obtain parental permission before sending in a referral;
- refer children who are academically at-risk and whom they believe would benefit from the program;
- contact the Program Coordinator to make a referral;
- indicate what skill areas need work; and
- provide feedback about the child’s progress
One time student enrollment fee: $75 for non-LDAYR members. $25 for LDAYR members.
