Comprehension Tutoring
Various short stories (at the appropriate literacy level) are read out loud to the Tutor.  Errors in pronunciation of words and misuse of punctuation are corrected. A series of questions are then presented to check the student's understanding of the text.  Any difficulties in answering the questions are addressed by using our unique method of learning.

The end result is a confident student who acquires increased understanding of the written language and who can apply this technique to future studies.

The Learning How to Learn Course, Study Skills for Life and Basic Study Manual can also be studied by a student who wishes to increase their comprehension. 

Consultation, Assessment & Programme

Firstly, we provide a free consultation with the student and/or parent to discover what they think the problem areas are.  If required, we then conduct an assessment in this area so we have a clear indication of what needs to be focused on throughout the tutoring sessions. 

All tutoring is delivered on a one-on-one basis and, depending on the age of the student, one to two hours per week.

Our dedicated and friendly staff are trained in the Applied Scholastics’ methods and are fully qualified and certified tutors and instructors.  They also have a wealth of experience from teaching many students and understand that each student is an individual who learns at a different pace.
