Just2 Tutoring serves both the content and executive functioning needs of students while providing parent coaching to receive the most value from your investment in your child. When most elementary level parents contact us, they are seeking some form of literacy support for their child. Our team includes learning and reading specialists who are experienced in the techniques of Orton-Gillingham & Linda Mood Bell. We provide reading and writing assessments and often refer students for more clinical evaluations as necessary. In addition to literacy support, the Just2 team is trained in early-intervention methods for addressing executive function skills. While most students are not identified regarding their learning challenges until middle or high school years, many parents are aware of their own past struggles with school and have detected similar challenges for their child. Early intervention with Just2 provides executive function coaching and optimal interfacing with both your child’s school program and their teachers which sets the foundation for their academic (and life) success…as well as avoiding the compounding of elementary school struggle later in their lives.
J2’s Academic Focus Coaching for elementary school students helps children develop executive function skills through the establishment of routines. Our tutors will help your student develop good homework habits and provide academic support. This will lead to confidence in reading, writing, math and more. Modeling good social behavior and maintaining a supportive mentor relationship further serves your child’s emotional development. We help children exercise their developing skills through activities fostering creative play and social connection. Over time, we provide opportunities for them to direct their own actions with less adult supervision. We encourage young learners to try new approaches to solving problems. Just2’s academic coaching for elementary school students will make your child’s earliest experiences of learning fun! After all, let’s not forget, we were children once too!
If you want to see the difference that academic focus coaching can make for your student, then it’s time to call Just2 Tutoring. Ready to get started? Contact Just2 Tutoring today.
Self-RegulationWe were pulling our hair out and communication between with our boy was nil. After two weeks with Just2 we saw improvement and we were talking again. After the first quarter, we began receiving positive teacher feedback that resulted in better grades than we had seen previously.
F's to A'sOur Junior at Fairview quickly turned his ds &fs to a’s & b’s. Just2 turned his helplessness around to independence.
504 & Concussion ProtocolOn October 12 of last year, our son suffered a concussion on the athletic field. J2 help us navigate the school’s temporary 504/concussion protocol. Unfortunately, during his recovery, he began experiencing symptoms of anxiety that we hadn’t seen in years. Fortunately, we had the Just2 Tutoring team to support us through what might otherwise have been a disastrous semester.
Direct InstructionWe had suspected that our daughter was falling behind in reading. But, it wasn’t until Claire’s fourth grade teacher suggested some additional support that we contacted Just2 Tutoring. Clair was paired with a perfect match for her and together they worked through her challenges in decoding, fluency and comprehension. Our J2 tutor used a dynamic approach incorporating Linda-Mood Bell and Orton Gillham methodologies with unique activities that made use of Claire’s own stories to keep her engaged. Last semester she reached her reading goals and was promoted to a reading group with her friends. She is so proud of herself and we are of her!
Recent DiagnosisFollowing a period of frustration, we had our son formally evaluated by a local neuropsychologist. We were relieved to find that there was a reason for our frustration and a name for what he had been experiencing. The doctor explained that while ADHD is the diagnosis, it is in the training of executive functions that will assist Jack in compensating for his focus challenges and impulsivity. She suggested that we call Just2 Tutoring for what she referred to as “boots on the ground” support for Jack. J2 set up weekly meetings, accountability calls and progress meetings which resulted in effect organization and productivity. Shortly after that, we saw a significant increase in grades and an improved attitude about school.
ACT/SAT & College PreparationOur family is very thankful for Jaz and Mike at Just2Tutoring. Our daughter worked with Mike over many sessions to raise her SAT scores over 100 points AND make her competitive for Engineering School. They worked with her through video conferencing on Google Hangouts so location does not matter. So far she has received three acceptances to Engineering Schools including her top choice at University of Colorado Boulder and expects to receive even more. Also, she has received over $70,000 dollars in scholarships over four years and hopefully more to come. This would not have been possible without the excellent instruction and support of Just2Tutoring. Thank you, Jaz and Mike for being the game changer for Abby.
