We continue to see improvement with Alexander and he gets used to school schedules again.
Lucia continued working with my son after the summer break, getting back into the study habits was difficult for him, but Lucia continues to maintain a constant level of assertiveness to gain compliance.
Lucia worked well with my son who can at times be less than attentive. Her methods kept him focused and he enjoyed the session. She was firm in her demeanor and he made good progress for the first lesson. We intend to continue with Lucia for his tutoring needs.
Week 2 - Seeing improvement as the relationship continues to develop between Lucia and my son. While this process is not quick, I think Lucia is up to the task of dealing with a little boy who does not always focus well. Her methodology seems to be working well.
Week 3 - Continue to see incremental improvements, Lucia works hard with my son, sometimes he is not always as attentive as he needs to be. It is obvious that Lucia cares about the progress made and is interested in his progress.
week 4 - Lucia continues to explore alternative methods and techniques to apply to my son's tutoring. We are seeing positive results for the continued efforts and Lucia's willingness to approach the situation with different methods. So far so good!
Week 5 - Lucia has used various techniques to break up the session into segments that my son can focus on, the results are improvements in his confidence and he is now sounding out words and not guessing.

For students with ADD or ADHD I also break down large tasks and pieces of information into more manageable sections so that they do not become overwhelmed. By breaking tasks down, students are able to achieve greater confidence and allev ... More
