With over 15 years of implementing Behavior Therapy & customized tutoring for students from Kindergarten to grade 7th, Livia Solomon is at the pinnacle of her profession. Her passion is for helping children developing skills for academic success and, supporting the social, emotional, behavioral and learning needs learners by creating the right support structure and expectation.
She believes that all children have the ability to learn and deserves the opportunity to learn, and to receive the support he or she needs to succeed. Unfortunately, standardized classrooms do not always accommodate different learning styles, which can leave Students & Learners Who Vary in Their Learning Style at a disadvantage.
To boost children’s academic skills, Livia focus on a child’s strengths and learning style. She has had the opportunity to work with individuals from different cultures and backgrounds. Building positive relationships with the children and their families is a particular strength of hers. Additionally, she recognizes the importance of effective communication with families in order to build a positive relationship to help their children’s learning.
Livia has worked with Public Schools, and has observed practices that don’t meet the standard of delivering education for special needs students.
She believes that Learners Who Vary in Their Learning Style and Rates should have the same opportunity as everyone else in our society, but there is still inequality in public schools. Although the vast majority of children with learning disabilities are given the opportunity to enroll in public school, she is perplexed how many teachers and support workers have no skilled for supporting the students with developmental learning disabilities, which denies the children abilities to learn academic skills, or learn to play with other children and make friends. Teachers can be valuable facilitators in helping special needs children gain academic skills and social competency, but there is no guidance curriculum for Special Learners, most IEPs are never even mastered and the result is that too many Special Learners are left behind. Unfortunately, there are no consequences for teachers and support staff if students do not learn. As long as students enroll in schools and put in the required seat time, teachers and support staff will have a job.
Livia has gathered parents feedback about their children’s unaccomplished goals and objectives in their IEP, and their undeveloped academic skills, and decided that after school in-home learning program will provide each child with the opportunity to develop academic skills, learn social skills and improve behavior skills in order to achieve their full potential, and develop strength and motivation to become stronger learners and reach educational goals.
Livia is an effective and active listener when families talk and empathize with them. She truly believes in the importance of parental involvement in their child’s educational program; and with encouragement, love and support, together we can build a solid foundation for lifelong success for your child.
