Educational Therapy is different from "traditional tutoring":
A tutor can be considered proficient in a specific subject area, but rarely has extensive educational training and/or experience in the classroom.While tutoring helps a student fill in “gaps” that have occurred as a result of poor instruction and/or a faulty understanding of concepts taught during the week, sessions at the Corner create the bridge to build life-long tools for effective problem-solving, solid time-management, and enriched critical thinking that are essential for success in today's dynamic world.
Almost every student today needs strategic support at some point to help him/her tackle the expectations for excellence. Both public and private schools are raising standards in many classes, and often not providing additional time to complete projects or establishing writing/learning centers as an opportunity to get assistance.
Sandra has completed over 20 years of training to support your child's learning needs:
Not only does Sandra have over 17 years experience as a full-time teacher, she is also trained in Orton-Gillingham and SRSD techniques with evidence-based practices and expert interventions.
Sandra is certified in Special Education and serves Twice Exceptional students with a variety of learning challenges. She is an active member of the Association of Educational Therapists, both locally and nationally. Please read about this organization and its efforts at this link.
