Former math teacher Lindsey Thompson left Highland Park High School to pursue a PhD in math education, and she now uses her powers of explanation in private and small group tutoring and educational-therapy classes at Park Cities Academic Services. Educational therapy is a method of scholastic training that focuses not just on the content of the class but also on the sociological and emotional barriers students face, such as the desire to make their report card spell “DAD.” Tutoring sessions might focus on standardized-test preparation, college applications and essays, or paper writing, and Thompson also fills her calendar with craft activities and field trips.
In the face of informational overload, Iris Reading helps students maintain a laser-like focus so they can cut through their reading material with speed. Online and in-person classes utilize drills to change old habits and drum up reading speed while still maintaining comprehension. And these techniques aren't just useful for literature and cereal-box backs. Classes cover strategies for magazines, newspapers, technical manuals, and websites, stressing the importance of retention and productivity along the way. Upon completion of Iris Reading's courses, students have reported the ability to tear through their reading material up to five times faster.
