## MATH TUTORING

Tutoring for math is available for students at Reading Remedy. A student with dyslexia may start out liking math. Math can be their strongest skill in the beginning. When they are young some children use their fingers as an aid for addition. Dyslexic students depend on their fingers much longer than most students. They become very good at hiding this.

Typically these students can find their way through subtraction, but they may be hesitant about the process. Uncertainty here may be one of the first indication that things are not right.

They begin to struggle with multiplication. Memorizing the multiplication facts often overwhelms them. Unless they learn some tricks to help them, memorizing these seems improbable. These students do not commonly learn these facts with confidence.

If they learn the multiplication facts, understanding how to multiply larger numbers is often a problem because it is a different sequence from addition. This is usually where the frustration with math grows.

Long division can turn the frustration of multiplication into a hatred of math. Long division is a multiple step process which is difficult for dyslexic students to remember and follow. There are many calculations to be done before the answer is obtained. Since dyslexic students are still guessing at their facts and calculations. The multiple steps offer many areas to misstep along the way and arrive at a wrong answer. This gives many students a feeling of failure.

They will continue to attempt the calculations, but they have usually lost any faith that they will remember how perform the calculations once the cramming for the test is over. They will know something about the basic idea, but not enough to use the information accurately in a calculation.

Not all dyslexic students will have difficulty with math calculations, but many will.

When dyslexia runs in a family, sometimes siblings that show no difficulty with language will experience these same types of difficulties with math. The math difficulties that come from dyslexia should not be confused with the deeper conceptual difficulties called dyscalculia.

Effective tutoring uses methods that fill in the gaps in the calculation abilities of dyslexic students. These students can quickly regain the confidence that they can perform the calculations correctly. Math becomes fun again and they gain the solid base they need to successfully progress in their math abilities.
