GiGi's Playhouse Down syndrome Achievement Center Fort Myers

Math Tutoring The aim of this program is to help promote a positive experience of learning mathematics and to develop a sound foundation of basic number understanding. Understanding that our children will vary greatly in individual abilities and challenges in comprehending math, we combined multiple approaches which utilize multi-sensory teaching, and aligned them with topics taught in the classroom, in hopes of providing a comprehensive and cohesive program. The program includes activities that apply the student’s learning experience from the classroom to the real world.Recommended for ages 3 and up.

Each child learns and develops math skills at a different pace. The GiGi's Math Tutoring program builds a foundation from the beginning in these main areas:

  • Number Sense and Counting
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Math in the Real World: Shapes, Fractions, Measurement, Time, Money, Data & Categories

Each tutor is matched with a student and weekly lessons are 45-60 minutes for 10 weeks at a time.
