With the pandemic still effecting the way children learn, and causing several interruptions, some families may feel as though they're scrambling for help.

Fears about falling behind in learning have only increased, and joining us on Fox News Midday is Dorian Reeves, an early intervention specialist and Founder of Ms. Dorian’s Scholars, who offers a unique learning alternative for some of the youngest struggling students and those with learning differences.

She continues to field calls from concerned parents over learning loss. She shares her tips for parents on how they can help their little learners despite these uncertain times.

For starters, she says seek out online programs that are specially made for core-fundamentals.

Then, look for tutoring programs or help books that minimize distraction and focus on the task at hand be it reading, writing, or math.

Next, keep tutoring or homework time routine. Children thrive on routine. Make it the same everyday so that the child knows what to expect. This allows for a child to be more prepared and have better ability to focus.

Set up a homework or tutoring space that’s devoid of distractions. Student should be sitting up. Space should be quiet with little to no stimulation.

Additionally, there is so much anxiety right now. Kids are not feeling as confident, so as a parent it’s a great opportunity to look for ways to build your child’s confidence. Confidence goes a long way in learning. At Ms. Dorian’s Scholars we’ll often work on the same items or slow things down just so that her young scholars master what they’re learning and feel confidence about it. Only then should you move on.

Also, consider the social emotional factor in today’s educational climate. If you’re stressed and anxious a a parent and bringing even a little bit of that into helping your child with homework or tutoring him, the student will sense it. The worst thing a parent can do during at tutoring session is yell at the child. At Ms. Dorian’s Scholars and even in our 1:1 and 1:2 tutoring program we include DFTBA where we focus on social emotional aspects in the kids’ lives.
