Our lessons are written just for your child. Rather than use a pre-packaged curriculum, we seek a rich understanding of your child’s learning profile in order to design targeted and strategic lessons. We specialize in the Structured Literacy approach to teaching reading, spelling, and writing. Our reading specialists are trained in Orton-Gillingham, Wilson, Fundations, Lively Letters, and/or Handwriting Without Tears.

We are diagnostic and prescriptive
This means we use both formal and informal assessments along with observation to determine the exact weaknesses and learning needs of each student. Then, we craft individualized lessons to explicitly teach weak skills. We are expert teachers who understand the complexities of the English language and number sense and can pinpoint and remediate your child’s weaknesses.
Our lessons are both targeted and strategic.
This means we take care to work on the specific skills and concepts that are difficult for each individual student. We do not follow a pre-packaged curriculum or buy into gimmicky educational promises. Rather, we use deliberate methods to remediate persistent error problems and develop fluency with reading and accuracy with spelling.
We understand dyslexia.
The dyslexic learning profile is often misunderstood or ignored in public schools. Learning to read is a complex neurological task. Those with dyslexia face a spectrum of struggles while learning to read and write. We are supportive, nurturing, and effective teachers to those with dyslexia.
