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

Eligibility:

Children must have a diagnosis of a learning disability and/or ADHD only, as per an IPRC.

Our Goal:

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.
Non-transferable. Non-refundable.
