Educational Coaching Goes Beyond Tutoring
The Family & Learning Center provides one-on-one Educational Coaching to students age five through adult. We specialize in providing remediation and study/learning skills development to support students with learning and attention challenges, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, visual-spatial processing disorder, nonverbal learning disabilities, and executive function deficits. Each student’s program is designed and monitored by Bonnie M. Weiss, M.Ed., Educational Therapist/Owner. Programs are then implemented by the student’s specially trained Educational Coach. The student’s academic, cognitive, and emotional strengths and challenges are considered when developing and executing his/her program. Through these programs, Educational Coaching goes beyond tutoring to focus on remediation in areas of weakness, building learning skills, and teaching the student how to learn.
Learning Disability Support/ Remediation
