At Brookwood, kids come first—not the test, not trophies, not to-do lists. We know how kids learn best. Every day, we use our expertise to challenge kids intellectually and ensure they feel valued so that they can grow into their best selves. Our program focuses on building 21st century skills and graduating students of conscience, character, compassion, and cultural competence. Brookwood also offers a playful, collaborative work environment for 85 faculty and staff who go the extra mile to do what is best for kids.
We are seeking an experienced Learning Specialist who is able to work individually and in small groups with students to provide direct instruction in writing, decoding, spelling, fluency, reading comprehension, math, and study skills. Additionally, the Learning Specialist will be able to assist students in transferring taught skills to content area material. The successful candidate should have training and experience working with students who have language-based learning disabilities, as well as experience teaching students with math and executive functioning vulnerabilities.
