Prior to registering for our tutoring program, students must have a psycho-educational assessment. These assessments are extremely useful as they enable students and parents to identify individual learning styles and pinpoint areas of challenge so that the appropriate strategies can be applied to improve their performance. This enables students to take charge of their learning. As students work with their tutors, the tutors use the information from the assessment to direct student programs and planning.Psychologists that Assess for Learning Disabilities
