Are you or your child on the fence about educational therapy and coaching? Here are some reasons why you should rethink what you may have heard about supplemental education:
Educational therapy and academic coaching provide students with the opportunity to focus specifically on the areas where they need help the most: grammar, multiplication, differential equations, reading comprehension, etc. In this atmosphere, students are less prone to the distractions of a normal classroom or group setting and less intimidated to make mistakes. Students are also free to ask questions without worrying about getting judged by their peers.
These sessions also allow students to work with an instructor who is an expert in the areas they struggle with most. In turn, their educational therapists and coaches are able to get to know students better and learn what strategies best suit them. The students, on the other hand, have the opportunity to get comfortable with their coaches and open up about difficulties they might not otherwise be willing to share (even with parents!). Students are able to learn and practice at their own pace, ensuring mastery of concepts along the way.
Setup for Success
According to several studies, early emphasis on academic skills such as math and reading skills are strong predictors of academic success in the long term. This is a recommendation from several organizations, including The National Research Council’s Committee on the Prevention of Reading Difficulties in Young Children, The National Association for the Education of Young Children, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. This is also a proactive approach to education. Students can develop study skills and learn what approach works best for them to realize their full potential.

“Before we found LJLW, my son resented going to tutoring and every session was a battle. That’s all changed. My son no longer complains about tutoring, and he is keeping up now with all his work, learning great study and organization skills, and is thriving in high school.“
– Parent of 10th grade student, Coronado High School
