Learning Support

Different Programs for Students

At Gurukulam global schools, we are committed to the belief that every student learns differently, and that these differences are to be appreciated and accommodated through a combination of intensively targeted efforts on the part of the faculty to make even the most challenging college preparatory curricula accessible to students of all abilities, talents, interests and learning styles.

Our unique Learning Support programs provide the tools that help students with learning challenges experience academic success, increase self-confidence, and acquire strong learning and self-advocacy skills needed in college and beyond. Students at every level of ability are encouraged to participate actively in their studies, practice self-advocacy, and accept guidance from the professionals with whom they interact every day.

Filling Gaps for SUCCESS

The school offers optional Learning Support programs in which teachers work one-on-one or in small groups with students to overcome obstacles to their academic success.

Our teachers have the training, experience, creativity and patience to identify and remediate gaps in basic skills, to support a student's efforts in content classes through the use of specific learning strategies or assistive technology, and to fill in the gaps which may present an impediment to success in college preparatory coursework.

Programs - Learning Support I

One-on-one tutorial support for students with documented learning differences and academic backwardness in multiple areas. Students in Strategies I meet individually with their teacher on a daily basis, focusing on academic support for content classes, preview and review of homework, use of assistive technology, and instruction/strengthening of reading, writing, organizational and study skills.

Programs - Learning Support II

Small-group support designed to improve and support student's overall achievement as they move toward increased academic independence. Students meet daily with a teacher in groups of no more than four, and focus on organizational and time management, metacognition and self-awareness, language and math skills, learning theories, and stress and anxiety management.
