We are not average reading tutors. We are dyslexia specialists 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 your child’s reading gap, boost their confidence, and accentuate their strengths.
- Phonemic Awareness
- Sight Words
- Reading Comprehension
- Writing Composition
Starting Point for Tutoring
Step One: Free Consultation. the director will meet with your family to discuss your child’s struggles, your tutoring goals, and my services. Prior to the consultation, we do request that you view some videos about dyslexia.Those links will be sent to you via email.
Step Two: Assessment and Screening: We prefer to do a baseline assessment on all our students using the Let’s Go Learn DORA assessment. We also conduct the Barton Student Screening. Students must pass the screening to begin the Barton Reading & Spelling System.
What if my child doesn’t pass the screening?
Not every student is ready to begin an Orton-Gillingham based program. If your child doesn’t pass the Barton Student Screening, We will begin with the Lindamood-Bell LiPS program. If necessary, we will also use The Green Readiness Book by Jerome Rosner. When your child completes these programs, we will give them the Barton Student Screening again.
Am I too old for tutoring?
We tutor people of all ages. It’s not too late to stop struggling with reading. If you are an adult who reads slowly, has trouble putting your thoughts on paper, and is still a terrible speller, contact us.
