Reading doesn't come easy for everyone. 

Have you noticed your child struggling to sound out words? You sit next to them patiently encouraging them to put the sounds together. They finally read the word but then they are stuck on the same word a minute later. Maybe their reading sounds okay but when you ask them questions about what they read they have nothing to say. 

Pushing back and losing confidence. 

You notice their feelings towards reading turning negative and it seems like they are always looking for a way out of doing it. Even just mentioning the word reading can be a trigger. Maybe they have always loved school but you worry that as time goes on they will loose the enthusiasm and confidence that they once had. 

Trying your best to help. 

You've been told by the school that your child is below grade level in reading. Or maybe you hear nothing but as their parent you notice a difference between their reading and the reading of other children their age. You don't want to see your child struggle so you do your research.  You take trips to the library, download apps, read articles, even incentivize them with rewards. But let's be honest, coaxing a child into post-school reading can be like convincing a toddler to share their favorite toy. Maybe carving out time in the evenings on a consistent basis isn't realistic for your family. Despite your best intentions, you aren't seeing the progress that you hoped for and it leaves you feeling frustrated and helpless. 

They can learn!

You are absolutly not alone. In fact, 1 in 5 children in the United States have a learning and/or thinking difference such as ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, or Dyspraxia. These challenges are not related to intellegince but instead have to do with differences in how our brains develop and process information. Specific strategies and supports, along with patience and understanding are needed to help these children be successful in school and in life. 

Why does our tutoring work?

We believe that children only give their best when they feel understood and cared about. That's why our first goal is always to get to know the child outside of academics and open up about ourselves to build strong connections. We understand that reading has been hard, which is why we approach children from a place of understanding and patience. We celebrate the things they can do, while still maintaining high expectations for growth.
