As A Tutor, I am going to share an important observation concerning some children in the public school system. There are some children who actually do better on the same test at the beginning of kindergarten than they do after a year of schooling. They start out excited and enthusiastic, and learn quickly. However when they return to me at the beginning of first grade they are very different.

Not only has their enthusiasm disappeared, buy they also display stress and behavior problems not present before. I discovered that when these same children are tutored at home (rather than at school) they calm down and read better. One of the things that I have learned to do when teaching these children at school, is to make sure I help them stay calm, use games to teach, give extra encouragement, and reassure them I am not scolding them when focusing them on the task at hand.

The children I am speaking of are often naturally energetic. But stress seems to be the key as to what is happening to them. When children or adults are under stress, the body releases a toxic hormone called cortosol. This hormone can cause or mimic behavior problems and learning disabilities (Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, ext.). It is not healthy for anyone to experience this stress over a long period of time. If this describes your child I recommend the following articles.
