Students with dyslexia can significantly improve their reading and spelling skills when they are taught differently (using an Orton-Gillingham based system).  As a private dyslexia specialist, I tutor a customized teaching program for each student by building skills that make sense to them -- a logical way that requires very little memorization.  With this training, students can succeed in school and use these reading skills as the gateway to all learning.  

Dyslexia tutoring doesn't have to be scary or intimidating.  As a compassionate tutor, I want to empower your child to feel confident in the classroom while having fun during our private sessions.
