Giftedness Support Beyond Tutoring
Gifted students have the ability to easily and quickly process and retain new information, flexible thinking, high creativity, and high sensitivity to criticism from others. Often, students with giftedness require learning experience beyond curriculum taught in a regular school program.
Ruth Rumack’s Learning Space (RRLS) works closely with students to display their full potential through one-to-one Direct Instruction, incorporating multisensory elements students find challenging and ensuring a cohesive strategy for students to feel comfortable expressing their ideas, needs, likes, and dislikes.
Common Issues Associated with Giftedness
Underachieving: Students may not show their full potential in terms of intellectual abilities to try to appear more like their peers.
Emotional Challenges: Students may have heightened sensitivity and risk being easily hurt or affected by words or actions of others.
Frustration: Students may experience feelings of frustration when working with others who do not process at a similar speed.
