We believe, passionately, that all children and adults can be taught to read and comprehend.

 

We identify the strengths and weaknesses that may be affecting school performance in reading- comprehension, fluency, phonemic awareness, phonics, and vocabulary development, writing, and math. Our instruction is based on an individual’s learning needs.

 

Some students come to us with general learning challenges or a previous diagnosis such as dyslexia, or autism spectrum disorders.

 

Students come to us to enhance their skills or to just make learning easier.

Academic Tutoring

Students who struggle with reading and writing often need direct, explicit instruction in these areas. I offer lessons using research-proven methods that are personally tailored to meet each student’s individual needs. I carefully monitor students’ progress, offering continual feedback and encouragement throughout the lesson. Your child's grades, and confidence, will improve.
