Private Summer Tutoring
It's not too early to think about summer tutoring! I am currently enrolling for my 6 week summer session. Seats are limited!

I am a trained dyslexia screener and offer screening services in two different formats. My training is through Susan Barton of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia.
Consultation Only Format
This service includes an extensive review of student background and educational performance including a formal records review.
Consultation and Formal Report
This service includes an extensive review of student background and educational performance including a formal records review, student testing for dyslexia, and a formal written report that summarizes all findings and recommendations.
All teaching sessions are one-on one or small group format. Students need to be closely matched in ability level to have the option of being instructed in a small group. I never teach more than two students in a small group. This format is essential to maximize all student's instructional time. I want every minute to count, allowing your child to make the academic gains they need to bring their reading, writing,and/or spelling up to grade level. R.E.A.D. Learning offers three different teaching packages to choose from.
All of my programs are multi-sensory, which means students are actively engaged in learning. To put it simply, research has shown that, "two wires that fire together, wire together." When students are hearing, verbally responding, writing, seeing, and using manipulatives to learn a given skill, they will achieve mastery of that skill faster and with more accuracy than when presented with traditional instruction.
"Dyslexic students need a different approach to learning language from that employed in most classrooms..."
Quoted from, International Dyslexia Association (IDA). Research about multi-sensory teaching can be found on the IDA website.
R.E.A.D. Learning Services embraces student learning differences
and empowers students to close the gap between their academic
performance and grade level expectations. I believe all students can learn and experience success in reading,
writing, and spelling when given intense, regular, and research based instruction.
The implementation of multi-sensory, explicit, systematic, and research
based programs that target specific reading deficits give my students the
skills necessary to succeed. My passion is leading students to
reading and writing success when traditional methods have not worked.
