Lexia Learners Math Tutoring FAQ’s
How is your program different from other tutoring programs?
We provide 1 on 1 tutoring to students using multi-sensory methods which makes learning math easier to understand and remember.
Do you individualize?
Yes, we individualize our program to fit each student’s needs based on the initial parent consultation, student screening and tutor's observations.
Can you teach my two children together?
Unfortunately, this is not an option because no two Dyscalculics are exactly alike, and the programs we use are meant for 1 on 1 tutoring. We can go as fast or as slow as the individual needs. Group tutoring sessions will not result in the same level of success.
Where is tutoring offered?
As of March 18th, 2020, we are only providing online tutoring. We have been offering this service since 2016, however, we are finding that the program is very successful via virtual learning for 90% of our students and now we can help students all over the country succeed.
What is the difference between in-person and remote tutoring?
There is very little difference between the two types of tutoring. Remote students meet on zoom.us and can see each other while the student is controlling the tutor’s screen. Believe it or not, some students focus better online than in person.
How often does a student need to be tutored?
Consistency is crucial for success! A tutor and student will meet a minimum of 2 days a week. It is beneficial that students meet two or more times a week, in order for them to remember the information being taught. Most Dyslexics and Dyscalculics have memory issues and need the reinforcement of information to successfully learn.
The length of time can vary (30 minutes or 50 minutes per session) based on the student's attention span, age, how quickly you want to see results and the severity of Dyscalculia.
What kind of math do you teach?
We teach foundational math through elementary school/junior high, only. Addition, subtraction, money, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, less than, greater than and telling time, pre-Albegra.
How long does it take to see progress?
If varies from person to person, however, most students will be able to learn their basic math skills within 3 to 6 months. Multiplication can be taught in as little as 4 hours to most students.
How long of a commitment is tutoring?
With Lexia Learners your commitment is one month to month. We request that you give us one month’s notice when you plan on stopping.
Do you offer services in other areas?
Does Lexia Learners offer a guarantee?
We cannot guarantee all students will benefit from our program, however, because of our extensive intake process, we usually can tell if our program will work for students before clients sign up with us. Our primary goal is to help your child build confidence in themselves and learn new skills that enable them to successfully read. If there isn’t progress within a month, we will let you know and you can choose to continue or discontinue services at that time.
What is the process to start tutoring?
Step One: Schedule a 30 minute consultation via phone with Coach Jess, our founder and director, who will discuss your child’s struggles, your goals for your child, and our program options.
Step Two: Register your child will participate in a Student Screening to determine a starting point for your child's personalized tutoring plan.
Step Three: Your child begins tutoring with one of our dyslexia specialized tutors and in no time your child’s confidence will soar, and soon after that you will begin to notice improvements in reading and spelling.
How do I schedule a consultation or screening appointment?
To schedule either a FREE 30 minute phone call or a 90 minute Student Intake Screening Appointment. The cost of the Intake is $150 including 1 hour student followed by a 30 minutes parent meeting and will be charged at the time you schedule the appointment. to schedule either appointment.
What does the intake appointment include?
The math intake is an opportunity to observe how our future student learns, what they already know, don’t know and what areas they are struggling in. We start with the basics: addition, placement, shapes and move up each grade level from there. Depending on the age and ability of the student, the intake can cover material up to 6th grade math. The intake will stop at the point that Coach Jess notices the math is too difficult for the learner. We try our best to keep the intake as low pressured as possible.
