The Dyscalculia Tutor Training requires serious self study and participant involvement and after successful completion will allow you to start your career as an independent Dyscalculia Tutor or Specialist.

The Dyscalculia Tutor Training features 110 videos totaling 31 hours in five modules and 235 downloadable tools, templates and games

When you have successfully completed this course, you will receive our certificate indicating that you are a Dyscalculia tutor at basic level 1-1 and we will stay in touch with you throughout your tutoring career to ensure you continue to meet our standards in tutoring.

This is not a recipe on how to tutor a student, this is a way of teaching that should allow you to develop your own tutoring style suitable for students with dyscalculia. Testing is not done with some miracle proprietary test that automatically tells you what modules to teach, rather testing is done through existing validated tests and you will need to translate the outcomes into tutoring sessions.
