Learner Support Services
We understand that there is a broad range of neurodiversity within dyslexia. Some students need support with math, academic writing, visual and/or auditory processing. We can help! Our students learn differently, and we support them in developing the skills they need to become confident, independent learners.

1:1 Math Essentials
Math Essentials supports students in building the core skills necessary to close the gap between their intellectual ability and their current performance in math. We provide a multisensory approach to mathematics combined with clear systematic and thoughtful instruction that ensures the development of a strong foundation in math. Instructors foster a growth mindset in all learners by ensuring we meet students at their current level of understanding and build up. As students make progress, they feel successful and gain confidence.
This program is ideal for children who have difficulty with learning, understanding, and applying math concepts, despite regular classroom instruction.

Our policy for OG Instruction, NILD Educational Therapy and Remedial Math is to provide a minimum of two sessions per week per semester. Research shows that the frequency of at least two sessions per week is needed for students to maximize the benefits of 1:1 remediation.
This depends on what the learning issues are. We work “as fast as we can and as slow as we need to.” Our goal is to build your child’s skills in reading, writing, math, and executive functioning so that they gain the confidence to take on academic challenges.
If your child is unable to attend a session for any reason, a maximum of two sessions per term will be rescheduled. 24 hours notice is required to cancel a session. In the event that inadequate notice of cancellation is provided, the session is deemed to be forfeited. Make-up sessions will be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time between instructor and student.

From the first moment we started in After3 tutoring through FAx, I have seen my daughter’s self-confidence and enthusiasm for learning grow. Unlike at our home school, Fraser Academy conveyed enthusiasm about who my child is and what she might become. One morning, my 5 year old couldn’t remember her tutor’s name and referred to her as ‘the teacher that teaches me everything I need to know so that I don’t get confused at school.’ Clearly, this program is working.Carolyne C., Kindergarten Parent
The way our daughter talks to us about her work shows that she is excited to be developing clear strategies for written assignments. I can actually hear the relief in her voice!Parent at FAx Outreach Centre
