Neuroplasticity + individualized tutoring + mentorship = success

Standard

Wonderful article in the New York Times: Sunday Review that focuses on taking students who are significantly behind in math and addressing their needs through individualized, mentored tutoring that is not cost prohibitive. For all students, math performance is a bellwether for future success. Regardless of how skilled they may be, we cannot realistically ask teachers to differentiate for students with a ten-year deficit in math, in classrooms that are bulging at the seams and for students who have such diverse needs. The ability to make the connection with the student and target that student’s specific learning needs ….success begets success.
