I’ve discovered a unique resource in New York City I’d like to share with you. It is called Individual U. and is a closely integrated team of remarkable mentors who can work with students of any age, in any subject, to advance understanding of subject matter. They can also teach parents to help their children learn. Many of us encounter young people in difficulty in school. Some are behind in understanding specific subjects, some are frightened of learning, some have learning differences (acknowledged and unacknowledged), and some have gone so far as to initiate school refusal. We often don’t know what to do with young people who are ’stuck’ and Individual U. is certainly able to be part of the answer. Meeting with Dr. Stephen Rudin to discuss the needs of each student may be enormously helpful to families. He’s good!
