While the staff at Noble Academy is specifically trained to serve students with learning differences and attention disorders, tutoring is open to all students in the community, with and without a diagnosed learning difference. Many of the strategies that help our full-day students succeed in the classroom can also bring powerful results in a tutoring situation. Students who are having trouble learning a specific subject, who need a motivational boost, or whose organizational skills impact their academic performance can all find success with a Noble Academy tutor. Our tutoring program is broken down into two divisions: Wilson Reading System® and Academic Coaching.
Wilson Reading System®
Our WILSON® reading instruction consists of remediation techniques for encoding, decoding, and fluency and employs a multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham structured approach by a WILSON® Language Certified Instructor. Skills are taught in an intensive, structured and individualized manner. We strongly recommend a minimum of two sessions per week.
Academic coaching offers personalized one-to-one instruction to help improve skills based on the student’s learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. A personalized tutoring plan is written for each student, taking into account the student’s needs. During academic coaching, tutors can provide students with homework help, strategies to be successful writers, math and much more.
Enhanced Alumni Support & Enrichment (EASE) Program
EASE is specifically designed to assist Noble Academy Alumni during their post-secondary education. Registered alumni will be connected to an EASE program teacher who will assist the student in planning and organizing their post-secondary work. Alumni can sign up for two different plans, which are outlined here. Susan Hughes is the Director of EASE and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
After an EASE application is accepted, the student will receive a Consent to Release Student Information document to sign and return. Without this signed consent form, EASE teachers are unable to provide parents/guardians, even if they are financially responsible, with any information about the student's academics.
