FOR CHILDREN

Customized individual tutorials address student’s unique academic abilities focussing on strengths while remediating areas of need.

As a Reading Clinician and Language Specialist, my training and experience in Direct Instruction pedagogy and Orton-Gillingham principles have provided me the opportunity to develop a highly effective approach to literacy education. I offer one to one private tutorials for children 5 to 12 years of age.

All programs are customized for each individual student using a diverse selection of resources. Lessons are structured, sequential and cumulative so that mastery is achieved. Programs are designed for every type of learner; auditory, visual and kinesthetic.  I believe in the power of words and use only positive affirming language creating a stress-free and peaceful environment. Children are able to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to help them meet their full potential and thrive.

Academic enrichment and remedial programs are tailored to match each child's personal skill set.

A friendly and informal intake process identifies each student’s academic strengths and areas of need.
