Gifted Student Programs to Develop a Students’ Full Abilities
The gifted child is the nerd with the pocket protector, the “smart” kid who excels at every subject. Right?
We are all born with certain intelligences and talents. The gifted child may be one who demonstrates a higher intellectual ability, but also can be one who performs or who shows promise to perform at high levels of productive or creative thinking, in specific academic areas, or in the visual or performing arts.
Since these children have been labeled as “gifted”, they’ll do just fine on their own and don’t need specialized tutoring, coaching, or mentoring. Right?
While some gifted students do apply themselves, make good grades, follow the rules, and behave well, others do not. Many school districts lack the means to accommodate and challenge a gifted student. The child can become bored and unmotivated, choosing to do just enough to meet the minimum requirements. Many lack the good study and organizational skills needed to excel because they were never properly cultivated to meet their particular needs when they were younger.
A gifted students abilities need to be developed and nurtured for them to grow. Working with a professional tutor experienced in implementing gifted student programs that help them to overcome obstacles, build confidence, and reach their full potential, inside and outside the classroom, is a good choice.
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services has over 3 decades experience tutoring, coaching, and mentoring gifted children. In fact, we estimate that well over 100 of our students were labeled as “gifted”. They have been some of the most challenging children we have worked with, and have produced some of the most highly rewarding results.
