Individual Educational Therapy and Tutoring Services

The Day Prep teachers provide 1-to-1 instruction for all subjects and all ages. After the initial intake and assessment, an individualized learning plan is created. This includes a plan for balanced sleep, nutrition, and exercise as needed. Our teachers weave social/emotional coaching, as well as executive functioning skill development, into their instruction as appropriate.

Our services are offered at our location in La Jolla, California, or in the comfort of your home or child’s school.

Scope

Our services are for children with no specified learning disabilities who want academic and social coaching to get and remain on cutting edge of their education, as well as for those who have specific learning disabilities, including non-verbal learning disabilities, dysgraphia, dyslexia, hyperlexia, autism spectrum, challenges with executive functioning, auditory processing disorder, and ADD. In addition, we serve children with social/emotional disorders such as Pervasive Personality Disorder and Oppositional Defiance Disorder.

Reading, Writing, Arithmetic

Children are taught best practices for reading, writing, spelling, penmanship, and mathematics. Our strategies help create critical, habitual, passionate readers through directed reading-and-thinking activities which help children comprehend and retain information for school and personal use. School writing and creative writing are taught in a systematic way that is reproducible in any setting, creating authors who can write in any style and genre, and to any topic. Math standards include a 4-step process for problem-solving, as well as real world and number sense instruction, enabling students to understand math in the larger context of the world and science. We also provide intensive spelling, pencil grasp, and penmanship repair as needed. We begin these services with children at age 3, or jump in whenever you find out about us.

Report Card Rescue

We help students who have never received their dream report card get it. We also help those who have gotten off track get back in alignment with their academic goals. Collaboration with teachers, organizational skills, and hands-on support make the difference. Sometimes a student who normally achieves their desired grades hits a wall in a particular class because it is difficult for them or they are less interested in the subject. We are there to support the student so they can complete their school year at an optimum level, maintaining their GPA.
