Cook’s Online Educational Series: Tutoring, Intervention, and Enrichment

 

Offering One-on-One Tutoring Sessions & 11 Intervention & Enrichment Classes: Along with Summer Group Classes

 

The launch of my ELBERT™ classes went very well…I’m offering many more tutoring sessions, intervention, and enrichment classes as well as evaluations! Please look for my other classes (BELOW) and summer camp starting June 6th!!! If you’re on OUTSCHOOL- times vary from below. I’m online..If you know someone who struggles with their learning and behavior please share. Basically, my classes are for children and adults who learn uniquely!!  I meet people at http://zoom.us!

In my classes and sessions,  I cover the affirmations of strengths of having a neurodifference and view them as “gifts” such as we are highly intelligent and have the ability to use tools and strategies to compensate for struggles to read, write, or spell.  We may excel at thinking of “outside the box” solutions, seeing a problem from many different sides, and spatial relationships along with the ability to think in 3 dimensions. We often have intuitive and insightful, well-developed social awareness and emotions while possessing a lexicon of words to help with the synonymous “whys of dyslexia”. We also have deep and holistic, list-form thinking, problem-solving, and building/constructing abilities, computer skills, and gaming strategies. Lastly, we seek out endeavors of creative, imaginative, visual, artistic, and visionary skills while taking on inventing and innovating pursuits. DURING CLASSES: I observer their acute interactions and stressors when learning this is why my classes include ELBERT™: ABC’s and PYAM including breathing and moving techniques!!! It’s a small group, so they gain friends too!! Again, let’s Nurture Their Nature and look at the “whole child” and complete learning differences including the nature and nurture of the neurodifference. I also observe the student’s sensory acute response to stress and interview teachers the child, and parents, observe input/output of motor, verbal, and written behaviors in response to a literacy activity such as a phonics inventory, word- sound knowledge, phonological awareness exercises, and working memory activities along with the student’s interest survey and overall behaviors based on executive, somatic and autonomic functioning.

#3 Ultimate Spelling Help: Adding Color, Shape, Size and dimension: A Great Strategy for Visual Learners & Those With Dyslexia

  1. Class Description Spelling Help small group class helps dyslexic students become successful spellers by using the ultimate word study. I intertwine sight words, vocabulary, etymology, phonology, morphology, and even grammar for the ultimate word study. Max. 6 per class. Why this class: https://myelbert.com/2020/09/09/dyslexia-help-dysphonetic-phonetic-vs-dsyeidetic-visual-dyslexia/; https://lookingtohealourownlearningdifference.org/2020/08/26/free-morphology-for-spelling-matrices/
  2. Note: I have a checklist of spelling markers and traits that describes what dyslexic spelling looks like. It’s plain and simple: The middle sounds even though in the middle position is the last to be processed. The last sound even though is the last position is the second to be processed. Since language sound processing is needed for spelling, you will observe them misspelling in mainly in middle position, then last position by doing omissions (leading to deletions, additions, substitutions, repetitions)!!!!. The students will asses themselves which markers and traits they may do when spelling; this will have them become aware of what they do and in which position of a word. They will be presented Reading & Spelling Rules which, in turn, will help eradicate some spelling.
