Abstract: For strugglers, timing matters. A little help before a lesson gives a child two chances to learn: the help session, and the lesson for which the child is then more ready. It saves you time, doesn’t hold the class back, and helps strugglers get the real lesson, not a watered down one, so they can rejoin the mainstream rather than falling further behind.
