Dyscalculia Help for Students

A student’s ability to learn mathematics may be affected by a variety of factors. However, students who need help with dyscalculia have a specific learning difficulty that makes it especially challenging for them to understand math concepts and reach mathematical solutions. Learners with dyscalculia have trouble interpreting and remembering information about numbers. They may struggle to manage their time and follow a schedule. High school students with this learning challenge commonly experience frustration when trying to work problems with multiple steps. Students who are looking for dyscalculia help should choose a school that offers learning strategies, technological tools and a positive educational environment.

Tutoring for Mild Dyscalculia

Educators who are familiar with dyscalculia can encourage students to develop their math skills. In the classroom, students may benefit from frequent reviews of concepts, solving problems with real world applications or following techniques to break down complex problems. Dyscalculia tutoring instruction will be paced to the student’s unique needs. Both Beekman and the Tutoring School have opportunities for students who are challenged when learning and retaining math skills. We work closely with students and parents to find the best approaches to addressing mild dyscalculia. In some cases, we may recommend remedial instruction, a modified curriculum or testing accommodations to help a student progress.

Support for Dyscalculia Learning Strategies

At Beekman, we empower students to learn math. We offer small classes staffed by experienced educators. They are responsive to the needs of those who could benefit from dyscalculia support. We also have the dyscalculia tutors and educational resources to guide young people in properly managing classwork, homework, quizzes and tests. We’re prepared to help students with mild learning disabilities related to mathematics education, whether that involves providing one-on-one instruction or offering methods to reduce math anxiety.

We are welcoming students to class this spring either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC (following our Spring Break), or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.  Learn more about our response to COVID-19 >
