The Dallas Lutheran School Talent Zone
The Talent Zone provides learning support services for students at DLS and in the surrounding community. Services include private tutoring, testing, homework assistance, enrichment, career counseling, and remediation.
Students are screened for academic strengths and weaknesses. Areas assessed include reading comprehension, arithmetic, mathematics, problem solving, evaluation, creativity, fine motor skills, and memory. Testing takes approximately 5 hours. A two conference to discuss the results and to offer suggestions that will strengthen all identified weak areas is included in the fee. The fee for testing is $450.
Foundations of Learning:
A program is designed to address weak areas revealed during the testing process. Students meet with tutors daily to develop new skills and monitor progress. The goal of this program is to improve foundational skills developing independence and alleviating the need for tutoring or other support services. Contact the Talent Zone for current fees.
Adult tutors assist a small group of students with daily homework. Study skills, test taking skills, organizational skills, and planning for projects are taught as needed. Students meet daily in place of study hall. Contact the Talent Zone for current fees.
