What Are Learning Specialists?

 

Academic tutors and learning specialists are sometimes used interchangeably, so it’s important to be familiar with what exactly each does and how they can help your child with their learning needs.

 

An academic tutor focuses on teaching a specific area of content, whether it’s mathematics, science, or reading. Meanwhile, learning specialists provide specialized support to students who are having difficulties meeting the demands of academic life. This includes students who are coping with learning differences and need enhanced learning strategies to manage their condition and succeed in school. Our staff also offers Executive Functioning Coaching for students and adults.

 

Learning specialists work one-on-one with students or in small groups to provide each child with the right amount of attention and guidance, which they may not be receiving in a traditional classroom setting. While learning specialists can also assist students in understanding their curriculum content, their role goes beyond helping your child with his or her schoolwork. Learning specialists can:

 

  • Help develop effective strategies to improve study skills and school performance
  • Educate and inform parents, family members, and teachers about learning differences and disabilities
  • Assess students to identify possible learning differences
  • Track the student’s progress and report to parents
  • Provide parents and teachers with resources that can help the student
