AD/HD, Tutoring


Adolescents with Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) tend to have significantly lower grades than peers without this disorder. Students with AD/HD may attempt to improve their odds of college admission by seeking to raise their SAT scores, such as through one-on-one tutoring. However, no research exists about the best methods with which to tutor students with AD/HD. A qualitative research study was conducted, in which five tutors recommended several interventions when tutoring adolescents with AD/HD for the SAT. The recommendations include: providing structure and organization techniques, meeting in a calm environment, training students to self-monitor, and consistent communication with the student's caregivers.
