Elementary School Tutoring

Every Tutor Doctor course of tutoring is tailored for the needs of the individual student. Our tutors are either certified teachers or teaching assistants, or have special qualifications for particular needs. We can support your child’s learning in any of the regular academic subjects – Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, French, Mandarin. Regardless whether your child needs an extra boost, or she is struggling to keep up or catch up, we will suit the tutoring to the objectives.

We also combine specific subject needs with components from the following options. You the parents decide on the course content based on our recommendations.

Program Components for Elementary Students


Study Skills Development

Before studying becomes very serious, students need to develop good study skills. Without direct help, most students will develop these skills too late, when poor study habits are limiting their progress. With a program of study skills development combined with tutoring in Math or Language Arts for example, Tutor Doctor can help your child to grow into an accomplished student with less stress.

Tutor Doctor’s Study Skills techniques include help with note-taking, organization of information and school work, avoiding procrastination and distractions, planning and prioritization, proactive decision-making and effective communication. One of the highest priorities is in test preparation: planning the preparation time and performing at exam time.

Learning in English for ESL Students

Many ESL students come to Canada with superior academic basics, especially in Math. However, learning in other countries is generally very different from learning in Canada. Without one-to-one guidance, students can become discouraged. While they are struggling to master English in an ESL class, they are not able to learn in Science or Social Studies. They have not yet learned the vocabulary of these subjects, and they don’t know what is expected of them, especially if they don’t understand the questions in their homework.

Tutor Doctor can help with English for ESL students. At the same time we can provide the guidance that will get your student learning effectively in the shortest time possible. We will help with extended vocabulary, curriculum discussion, homework support and communication with the teacher to ensure alignment with the classroom needs.

Targeted Special Needs

Special needs students learn differently. Although many are challenged in one way or another with learning the “regular” way, most have special talents and some have extraordinary talents. With appropriate care and attention, these students can start to glimpse their potential and start to work with passion instead of being left on the margins of the class.

Your Tutor Doctor tutor will engage in regular consultation with the parents and regular communication with the teacher. We have tutors with training and experience in tutoring students with Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD and other challenges.

High School Preparation

During Grade 6 and especially Grade 7, it is very important for students to understand how their lives will change at the start of Grade 8. Many students start high school having done fairly well through elementary school, but without knowing what to expect. Part way through Grade 8, there is suddenly a whole lot of unnecessary stress for the student and the family.

Tutor Doctor suggests introducing topics into tutoring sessions which will highlight the differences between elementary and high school work and the tactics the student can use to make this an exciting instead of bewildering experience. Here are just a few examples of those tactics:

      • Getting used to homework from six different teachers
      • Taking responsibility for your own school performance
      • Managing project assignments
      • Getting ahead and staying ahead

Leadership

Future leaders are not all academic stars in Elementary School. But many will have started to show signs of special maturity and a talent for communication. Tutor Doctor can combine an element of leadership development with subject skills to help most children to accelerate their academic progress. We will help your student to develop presentation skills, learn the principles of debate and discussion, begin or build a love of volunteering, or help with a special project outside the limits of school.

Secondary Schools Admission Test

More and more families want their children to attend private schools, most of which ask for applicants to sit the SSAT. Many people think that preparation for the SSAT involves practicing some special method to do with the nature of the test itself. In reality success in the SSAT comes mostly from proficiency in the basics of elementary learning: reading, writing and basic mathematics. Later these skills have to be polished through practice on SSAT sample tests.

Tutor Doctor will help your child develop a high level of proficiency in all the basic skills, or just those that are lacking, and then build confidence in the test-taking process at the appropriate time.
