We are currently booked but are excited to introduce you to Laura Schrader, a new OG tutor in Wilmington. She is not affiliated with Bright Minds Tutoring so please contact her directly at (910) 599-0415.
Here is a little more about Laura:
Laura Schrader is a licensed special education teacher with 15+ years of experience. She studied Special Education with a concentration in Learning Disabilities at The University of North Carolina – Wilmington. She also studied Assistive Technology at East Carolina University.
Laura is certified in the Orton-Gillingham approach and most recently has started the intensive path towards becoming a Certified Academic Language Therapist/Dyslexia Therapist. She has completed over 120 hours of extensive training in the Take Flight program, which is designed as a therapeutic intervention for students with dyslexia. She is driven by a passion to deliver highly effective literacy practices backed by research.
We work with homeschool students during the day, either at our office or online. Parents are welcome to sit in on the sessions if they’d like, so they can continue the lessons during the week. We also provide parent training, supplemental sheets, and resources for the student, and advice and information on the different curriculums.
Personalized Instruction Catered to Your Child’s Needs.
We work with your child to determine their strengths and unique learning style. We also pinpoint their weak areas and any gaps in their knowledge base. We then create lesson plans specifically targeted to address those trouble spots using methods that play to their strengths. Through this approach, your child is able to experience success and develop self confidence in their ability to achieve academically.
One-on-one Instruction Using Evidence-Based Methods
Our tutors use only the most effective, evidence-based methods. Our instruction is multi-sensory, explicit, and systematic in its approach. We believe, as Ignacio Estrada stated, “If a child can’t learn the way we teach, we should teach the way they learn.”
Research has shown that children who struggle in school don’t need a wait and see approach.
They need intervention NOW. The earlier you can remediate, the better.
