We are now offering SAT tutoring for students with learning needs. It’s time to start planning for the SATs! If your child has difficulty with test-taking, the SATs can be very stressful. Jocelyn Wood, speech language pathologist, has been working with children with speech and language disabilities and learning disabilities to help them feel more confident and prepared for college entrance tests. Together, we create goals and formulate a plan for achieving that goal. My work takes the child’s individual learning style into account and makes test prep fun and exciting! We use creative methods to introduce and learn vocabulary words, discover how to find grammatical errors on the writing section and create a fool-proof plan to have a high scoring essay. Your child will go into the test feeling much stronger and will achieve his/her goals!
