Tutoring Students Who Have Dysgraphia – The A Team Tuition Approach

A student with dysgraphia typically experiences challenges with writing. It can impact the skill of handwriting as well as typing and spelling, too. Subjects of particular difficulty are any of the language arts subjects (like English and Humanities), but this can extend to the inability to express themselves coherently in other subjects that have report-based learning and key written components (like Science and Maths).  

A deep, nuanced understanding of the learning requirements of a student with dysgraphia inform the teaching and learning practice at A Team Tuition. Our tutors participate in extensive training and professional development as they work to form professional working teams with families and schools in order to ensure progress and the capacity of each student to find success and enjoyment in their learning.
