Approaches to Learning
At Successful Solutions, we individualize instruction to maximize learning specifically for each student. We focus not only on the "HOW" of completing the task, but also the "WHY" it works; deepening understanding and helping with retention of skills. When appropriate, manipulatives, models, and technology are utilized as tools to further maximize understanding of concepts. Whenever possible, real-life problems tie concepts to students' lives giving meaning and purpose to their school work.
Providing visuals, minimizing work on a page, offering time for questions and processing of information, allowing use of technology to better organize or physically write with paper and pencil are methods used depending on the needs of each individual student whether in a private tutoring session or a small group session.
