What makes RISE special?
Developed from BC’s Core Competencies, research-based curricula, and our intake process, the RISE Method offers an individualized approach to suit the learning strengths and stretches of each of our students.
During our one-to-one instruction intake process, our staff learn about your child’s learning challenges and successes. We interview you and conduct informal assessments to help identify gaps in your child’s learning and areas of weakness.
Our curricula are research-based to support our diverse students. We strive to find the right curriculum, or combination of curricula, to support each of our students.
Our instructors include BC certified teachers, Special Education Assistants, Orton-Gillingham (OG) certified instructors, Speech-Language Pathologists and experienced inclusive education tutors. Passionate for making education accessible for everyone, our instructors meet students at their levels and work on building each student’s confidence, foundational skills, and to reignite students’ love of learning.
With the guidance of our Learning Support Team, instructors individualize their lesson plans to target students’ learning challenges and build on their foundational skills. Instructors help students identify strategies to make learning a success in and out of the classroom.
We work hard to match students with appropriate instructors and ensure there is a good relationship built and maintained between an instructor and student.
Like our diverse students, our instructors come to us with varying backgrounds as well. You can read more about our instructors on the Our Team page.
