Sometimes we need a bit of extra help when it comes to learning, especially when everyone learns and develops at different speeds with different methods being more helpful than others. Thankfully, Growing Minds understands and has created a space that offers tutoring and learning services.
Teaching ages from preschool to university, Growing Minds offers a wide range of tutoring services. Whether you’re looking for one-on-one tutoring, a jumpstart program, extra help with reading, writing, and spelling, enrichment programs, or SSAT prep – Growing Minds offers it all. Whether you need help with reading and writing, math, science, or general test prep, it’s offered here.
When it comes to reading, writing, and spelling, Growing Minds relies on the Orton-Gillingham technique which has been around since the 1930s and is a proven method for teaching students of all levels. In a nutshell, the method teaches the basics of forming a word before they teach what it means, allowing for a more flexible way of learning the basics. It’s a proven way of helping students read, write, and spell and has shown success specifically in students with dyslexia.
Aside from learning services, Growing Minds also offers enrichment services for those students who need something more challenging to keep them stimulated. Not all schools have the resources for an enrichment program, or sometimes your special student might not quite qualify for the class (especially if the class is too full). Keeping a student that is gifted challenged can be tough, but Growing Minds offers services to help.
If you have any concerns about how your child is learning or developing, Growing Minds also has a certified school psychologist onsite to help test cognitive, social, and emotional abilities. For parents that have children at school at any age who have concerns, the dedicated staff at Growing Minds can help decide what path is best to help the student be successful.
Lastly, Growing Minds offers summer school programs ranging from reading, writing and grammar, creative writing and presentations, and back-to-school preparation. Whether you are looking for a great summer camp for your child, or just want your child to get a head start for the school year, Growing Minds offers camps and private tutoring throughout the summer.
Their motto is “Where Learning is Nurturing” and if you read the reviews online, you can see so many testimonials from happy students. There is no need too big or too small, so chat with Growing Minds today.
