In our specialist tutoring program, Learning Links’ specialist teachers are committed to building students’ literacy, numeracy and study skills to empower them in their learning throughout primary school and high school.   

We know that school can be very challenging for some children, particularly those with learning difficulties and disabilities. That’s why our teachers work collaboratively with families to discover each child’s unique interests and learning goals. 

Our purpose is to empower children and adolescents to build and maintain the skills, motivation and confidence that they need to reach their potential and succeed at school.

Supporting Foundational Skills for Learning

Our specialist tutors use evidence-based interventions and teaching strategies to support primary and high school children in a range of areas:

Literacy: reading, writing, spelling and comprehension

Numeracy: maths difficulties, working with numbers and worded problems

Learning difficulties and disabilities

Study skills and assignment strategies

Maintaining concentration

Planning, time management and organisation skills

Tailored Programs for Learning Difficulties

Our qualified teachers use each child’s individual strengths, challenges and learning style to tailor an individualised tutoring program that will have the biggest impact on their literacy and numeracy development, and other areas of their learning where they may struggle.  

Our specialist tutoring program is made up of:

Observation and screening

The first step in every tutoring program is an assessment to identify your child’s strengths and the gaps in their understanding. Our teachers identify where your child begins to find learning difficult and start from there. 

Set goals

Our teachers set measurable goals, specific to your child’s needs that they can work towards throughout the program

Individual Learning Plan (ILP)

A tailored program is developed, outlining how your child will achieve their goals. 

Support sessions

During our specialist tutoring sessions, our qualified teachers use clear language, worked examples and a structured approach to re-teach the skills your child is having difficulty with. We model skills and assist your child for as long as possible to ensure they master skills before moving on and to reduce the chance of incorrect learning. 

Our teachers use a range of teaching resources and strategies to support children to engage in their learning and experience success. In our classrooms, your child will have access to a variety of technologies including both computers and iPads, providing an opportunity to rehearse skills in a supportive and enjoyable way. Our aim is to make learning a rewarding experience for children by incorporating a variety of games to provide valuable opportunities for practice.

Review and post-testing

Students are reviewed to measure progress against their ILP and ensure they are mastering each skill before moving on. Revision is usually set each week to consolidate learning and assist your child in mastering literacy and numeracy skills.
