The Reading + Math Lab at NRICH Tutoring is designed to address the needs of students with specific learning disabilities in reading and math, including those with dyslexia and dyscalculia. With multisensory, structured-learning approaches that help retrain the brain and one-on-one instruction, students can develop skills and understanding that help them gain confidence and get on track academically. We use lots of games to reinforce learning so don't be surprised if your child comes home and says they played and didn't do tutoring!
Reading is the key to success in all subjects, in the workplace, and in life! Readers of all ages can improve with tutoring sessions. Math skills and understanding can help students in all types of careers while lack of these can hold people back from reaching their full potential. Children may have problems with reading or math; in some cases, they may have trouble with both. Addressing these needs early is important but struggling learners of all ages can be helped with instruction geared to their specific learning needs.
One in five students struggle with reading and may be dyslexic. The structured literacy strategy used at NRICH Tutoring can help to improve reading skills. Dr. Harrington is a Certified Academic Language Practitioner, who follows an Orton-Gillingham approach.
