How do I know my child will be successful in your program?
You can have complete assurance that we exceed the standards of “Best Practices” set by the Ministry of Children and Family Development. All of our programs are specialized, are internationally recognized, are recommended by professionals, educators and parents, and have a track record to prove our outstanding success. Please see Testimonials.
We do not enroll students who are not a good match for our program. This way you can be confident we are not wasting the child’s precious time in getting the help they really need, draining your finances reserved for helping your child’s tutoring needs, or taking up your personal family time. This will be evaluated during the initial consultation at no charge.
How many years do students attend Mind Over Learning?
Most students can complete their program between a year and half to 3 years. Others may need continued help all the way through school to graduation.
Established schools specialized for students with learning disabilities, where there is a 10 to 1 student-teacher ratio, advise or recommend 4 – 5 years of full-time attendance for effective remediation. This is an indication of the time commitment required for remediation.
Who will be working with my child?
A Specialized Learning Instructor trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach with specific qualifications in either language or math will be working one-on-one with your child.
How are your tutors different than learning support at school or other private or commercial tutoring centres?
Most of our tutors are certified and experienced teachers. What sets us apart is our additional training and specialization in Learning Disabilities with specific training focused on autism, ADHD, dyslexia, math learning difficulties (dyscalculia), non-verbal learning disabilities, auditory and visual processing disorders, output processing disorders, and language learning disorders.
Do your tutors accommodate to students’ behavioural and emotional needs?
Our Specialized Learning Instructors understand the behaviours and emotional needs that impede learning. They have the skills to expertly guide and reassure the student emotionally.
