HOW WE HELP
We offer subject-specific support to students who fall behind on daily assignments or have problems in a particular subject area. We find that these students benefit from weekly tutoring sessions. In these sessions, students receive individual attention, work at their own pace and are taught according to their individual learning styles.
We offer one-on-one as well as group tutoring to no more than three students. Through interaction with students and assessments of their skills, we determine which type of learner each child is - visual, kinesthetic, or auditory - and plan lessons that are specially designed to suit your child's learning style and needs. We use various manipulatives, which may include but definitely not limited to graph builders, building blocks, money, as well as various on-line resources, so that students can connect readily with each concept being taught. We want our students to understand and not be afraid of any subject especially math.
Our desire is to cultivate a love for reading in your child. As such, students gain skills in comprehension so that they understand what they read. We help to build their inferential and critical thinking skills through various techniques and online reading programmes.
We also offer improved study skills. Tutors can help students acquire and practice good study habits and learn effective organizational and time management skills.
At ECL Tutoring Service, we have over 30 years of teaching experience at the elementary and high school levels. We began offering tutoring services because we love teaching children and enjoy watching their excitement when they grasp a concept that is being taught. To complement our tutoring we offer summer day classes for elementary students who need more instruction in order to be better prepared for the next grade level.
