Learning Center Highlight: Achievement

Print Friendly

AJ is a 3rd grader who struggles academically and is hyper active. He has difficulty staying on task and focusing on his assignments.

At the learning center, while receiving after school tutoring, AJ had a hard time focusing and doing his homework without the supervision of an adult.

Noticing that AJ was struggling with math, the center’s Resident Coordinator introduced manipulatives to the tutoring sessions – a method used by kinesthetic learners when solving math problems. “This way AJ has something to use to get to the answers” says Raul, “This keeps him more entertained than staring at a worksheet, and he finds it exciting when he figures out the answer.”

Raul still has to remind AJ to stay focused during tutoring sessions but he can see a significant improvement in his math grade and overall attitude and performance.
