What is dyslexia?

"Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability. Dyslexia refers to a cluster of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading. Students with dyslexia usually experience difficulties with other language skills such as spelling, writing, and pronouncing words." -The Internation Dyslexia Assocation

(International Dyslexia Assocation) 

Do you only tutor kids with dyslexia?

No, we also tutor students who simply need help learning to read or need to strengthen an area of reading like comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. Learning to read is not a natural skill we are born with; it must be taught. We teach reading using a systematic, explicit, and multi-scensory approach to reading. Research the Barton Reading & Spelling program for more information. 

How many hours of tutoring do you recommend?

We require a minimum of two sessions a week. This is so that the child sees and feels adequate progress, which helps gain confidence, and also so they retain the information learned and have the opportunities to apply it. If your child need supplemental tutoring (reading comprehension, note taking strategies, homework help) then there is no minimum for how many tutoring sessions are required. 

Can you work with my son at his school?

Absolutely! That just needs to be coordinated with his school. 

Do I need an official diagnosis before beginning tutoring?

That completely depends on your child. Give us a call and we can discuss your options and what is best for your son or daughter.
