About Us:

We are not average reading tutors. We are reading therapists who are trained to offer specific programs to help students of all ages be successful in reading, writing, and spelling.

Bright children who struggle with reading, spelling, and writing could be suffering with dyslexia. It is very puzzling to parents because these children are often very artistic, athletic, and creative young people.

Our job is to close a child’s reading gap, boost their confidence, and accentuate their strengths.

We are looking for 12 month reading tutors. Stay-at-home moms, retired teachers, and homeschooling parents are particularly well suited to these positions.

Our tutors and our learning center is in high demand, and our clientele is growing. We will train you to use the Barton Reading & Spelling System, an Orton-Gillingham based phonics program specifically designed for the needs of our clients.

Compensation will be between $13-15 per tutoring hour to start.

We value diversity in our clients and tutoring staff.
