With tutoring, children’s attention spans increase and attitudes improve!
- When a child can’t read and spell to the level of others around them, they tune out and feel like they can never learn. School is a constant struggle, and it is hard to pay attention.
- Some kids develop learned-helplessness. Others develop anxiety, withdrawal, oppositional behavior, clowning or hyper-activity.
- Aspire has seen these symptoms slowly disappear for children over the course of tutoring. Children begin to be able to hold greater attention during reading tasks, begin to experience success and learning, and feel pride in their accomplishments. Troublesome behaviors begin to decrease and disappear as reading and spelling improves. Yes, this is anecdotal, but it definitely observable.
