Just Another Day at TRCTutor

Several of you have asked me what makes TRCTutor different than a regular tutoring service.  It is the combination of Therapeutic Recreation and Academic Tutoring which is unique.  I work with the mental health side and our teacher deals with the academics.  By combining a licensed recreational therapist and a licensed teacher we can meet the many needs of the child who is experiencing multiple problems learning.

Here are some pictures taken today at the TRCTutor which will illustrate some of the ways we are different from traditional tutors.

Reading is so much more fun when you get to read to Grandma by the campfire under the stars.  And she never gets upset when you miss a word.

Teaching the camel some new tricks

Did you know that camels can  multiply?

And that you can do fun multiplication on your fingers?

Who knew learning was this much fun?  Yes, we do cover all of the traditional reading, writing, and arithmetic and test taking skills.  We just present it in ways that make your child more successful in learning these tasks.  By making it fun, and using specific techniques to  lesson stress and anxiety, your child will blossom and become successful in the traditional classroom.

By Enjoying Life!

I am a NC Licensed and Nationally Certified Recreational Therapist, a wife, parent, friend, band geek, photographer, nature lover, swimmer, and artist. Actually, I'm interested in just about everything since I have an "insatiable curiosity". Managing stress, relaxation, and the mind-body connection is a favorite interest of mine. What is known about the brain is absolutely fascinating in its complexity and the effects it has on the body and this knowledge is developing by the second. The research is astounding! Since I have been involved in learning and public education through contracting work for decades, it just makes sense to start TRC Tutor, which is why I went back to school to get my Master's all of those years ago!
