We offer daily homework assistance at all branches of AFTER’S COOL. We work in small groups tutored by university students. Each day all homework is covered. The exercises that have to be made are checked by the tutors and students are actively tested on the material that has to be studied or memorized. We teach the students how to get an overview of and gain insight into their homework by planning and prioritizing. They will also learn how to learn: which learning tactics prove to be the most effective?
Sometimes students difficulties are caused by only one subject or a few specific courses. In that case, one-on-one tutoring is an ideal solution. Students get one-on-one time with a tutor who specializes in the specific course the student is experiencing difficulties with. This intensive way of tutoring has proven to be very helpful.
Learning is fun and good for your self-esteem. Or at least it can be, when everything goes well and studying is being rewarded with good grades. But what if, even when you are trying your best, the good grades fail to follow? For all students who find that learning is turning into something they dread because it seldom goes well, Remedial Teaching is a perfect solution. Remedial Teaching is the professional guidance in dealing with learning disabilities or lagging behind in school. These are situations that can have a great influence on motivation, self-confidence and results. A diagnosis will be made and students are equipped with learning tactics and helped in catching up with their classmates. School results will improve and so will your child’s self-confidence.
Learning disabilities can be defined as having difficulties with one or more subjects, such as reading comprehension, spelling or mathematics. Think for instance of dyslexia and dyscalculia. Intelligence, focus, concentration, memory and motivation are all important aspects of learning. Children with learning disabilities have normal intelligence. Causes for learning disabilities can be very diverse and so are the implications of them. The frustration caused by not succeeding can affect the joy and motivation of going to school. Testing can therefore be very valuable. Not only can we learn more about the cause of the problem, we can also look to the future and discuss the best way forward.
