Multi-Sensory Math Tutoring for Students with Dyscalculia

Do daily math lessons cause unwanted stress in your family’s homeschooling? Is math causing anxiety for your child? Not every child learns math the same way. Determining the correct methods and language to use with your child to make math make sense can be difficult.  If your child has been diagnosed with dyscalculia or if you are suspicious he/she has it or another math learning disability, this tutoring may be just what you need. Dyscalculia is found in the population at similar rates to dyslexia, yet many have never heard of it. A multi-sensory approach to math will facilitate your child’s understanding of math by beginning with concrete ideas and moving into abstract thinking.

Each week your child will attend a 1-hour in person tutoring session in addition to a 30-minute virtual online lesson with Jan Schulte, a veteran homeschooling mom and certified Dyscalculia Tutor.  These twice weekly sessions will be tailored to your child’s needs.  Areas addressed will include number sense, subitizing, operations, word problems, fact fluency, and place value encouraging various strategies while using manipulatives. Next, your student will move on to more advanced math concepts when appropriate using manipulatives to teach concretely first before advancing to more commonly used algorithms. You will receive regular feedback on your child’s progress, recommended topics to review, and will have access to an online platform for practice of the concepts at home utilizing digital manipulatives.  All needed supplies will be provided by the tutor.
