Every Child Is Different, Yet Schools Teach to One Set Curriculum, Failing Many
Santa Monica, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2014 -- In April 2013, California State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson announced an improvement in the high school graduation rate for the state, declaring approximately 78.5 percent of students now graduate with their class. Many took this to be excellent news as this was an increase of 1.4 percent from the previous year, but parents need to wonder what happened to the other 21.5 percent of students. "Parents who feel their child isn't reaching his or her potential need to look into hiring a Beverly Hills private tutor to ensure their child not only graduates, but excels in every area as this increases his or her chances of attending a top university or secondary school," Kathryn Schellenberg of Learning Lab LA declares.
According to the California Department of Education, the average kindergarten class holds 22.8 students while the average fifth grade class has 26.3 students. "Sadly, teachers must teach to a curriculum and rarely have the opportunity to focus on the needs of each individual child which is why special needs tutoring in West Los Angeles may be required as a tutor can focus on the child's strengths and weaknesses and help him or her reach their full potential," Schellenberg continues.
Tutoring options include SAT/ACT preparation, history, math and science, literature and more, yet Learning Lab LA offers a great deal more than just a private tutor in Brentwood. Children learn study skills which prepare them to excel, how to write a paper and how to be a top student. Tactics taught include how to turn Cs into As and how to improve communication with teachers. "Students need different things which is why all services comes individually or as part of a success package. A free consultation provides Learning Lab LA staff members, students and parents with the opportunity to determine what is needed and what services will be of most help to the student," Schellenberg goes on to say.
In addition to tutoring and study skills, Learning Lab LA helps develop personalized education plans, offers success optimization and provides college application support. "Contact us if a child needs college counseling or accommodations for students with special needs as we can be of help. We believe as Nelson Mandela did, that education is a powerful weapon which may be used to change the world which is why we want to help every child receive the best education they possibly can," Schellenberg proclaims.
