We evaluate and analyze how each child learns. Then we suggest
alternative ways of studying that compliment the student's
individual learning style. For instance, a child who is a
visual learner is encouraged to draw pictures illustrating
science terms in order to remember them better.
Overactive children, those who tend to daydream and those
who are easily distracted all need our support to feel confidence
and joy in their school experience. We suggest behavior modification
contracts to help parents guide their child in positive ways.
Our parents have found that The Salisbury Tutoring Academy
is extremely successful in this area. All skills emphasized
here at the academy are beneficial to ADD and ADHD children.
We use a variety of multi-sensory hands-on approaches to help
students work around, and compensate for, specific learning

Our writing program helps children express their ideas clearly
and concisely. We focus on all the skills evaluated by the
NC Writing Tests: narration, description, clarification, etc.
We help children learn how to write reports and term papers.
They improve their mechanics and benefit from our multi-sensory
hands-on program to produce better spellers. We enable children
to become exciting writers.
Many children come to The Salisbury Tutoring Academy to improve
their reading skills. We work on speed, accuracy, fluency,
and comprehension. We teach decoding skills with a multi-sensory
approach for all the sounds in the English language. We have
hands-on exercises to help build a better vocabulary base.
If a child reads at or above grade level, all subjects become
more enjoyable. A program for parents to work closely with
the development of their child's reading skills is also offered,
with full guidance provided.
