In my experience teachers always want to do the best for their students, but some struggle so much with the basics it is difficult to find enough time to help them. They are very bright youngsters who just can’t grasp simple literacy.
Well you can now make a huge difference to their experience very quickly. These youngsters frequently have great skills to learn visually so try making helping them to use that great skill for literacy and numeracy too. You will be amazed at just what they can achieve.
