Reading and math specialist
Every Thursday, Mrs. Villevielle comes to Notre Dame to work with small groups of students. As a team, the teachers and Mrs. Villevielle put together personalized programs addressing certain difficulties that some children may encounter in the classroom setting.
Small group tutoring
The teachers put in place tutoring sessions when they notice that specific students are having difficulty grasping a particular concept. In accordance with the official curriculum, the teachers teach the same concepts that are taught in the classroom but use different methods and provide extra practice, helping the students succeed. These modules take place in three-week cycles.
