Support Academic Success
We can enhance your child's strengths and support them for academic success in the following areas:
Executive Functioning & Organization
Working with Families
We feel it's important to have a strong relationship with the students and their families. Our team works with students to offer personalized lessons that meet their needs and help build skills that will foster their potential and help grow their strengths. We also value communication between families and the members of our team.
Reading and Writing
We help children learn to read and spell using the Orton-Gillingham (OG) "Plus" approach. OG is a direct, explicit, systematic, sequential, prescriptive, diagnostic, and multisensory approach to literacy instruction. It is typically recommended by experts in psychoeducation and neuropsychology and more and more schools are implementing OG-based literacy programs.
We assist students and adults to build skills in organization, time management, and planning. These and other "executive function" (EF) skills are often less-developed in children (and adults) with ADHD, but many others experience weaknesses in EF skills, too.
Our team has years of experience and a toolbox of ideas to share.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Abby F. (Parent)
Our son struggled with the workload and responsibility challenges presented by the transition to middle school. With Stephanie’s help, he was able to create a reliable organization system and build effective study habits that have served him well. We highly recommend Stephanie as a friendly and relatable resource for middle to high school age students.
Sarah A. (Parent)
Stephanie worked with my son, who is dyslexic. She was terrific. She found creative ways to keep him engaged, learning about him and what he liked to incorporate things he enjoyed into every lesson. While he hated reading and everything associated with it, he loved his time with Stephanie and always asked when he could work with her next. He made amazing progress working with her. I would strongly recommend Stephanie as a tutor!
Mark D. (Parent)
My daughter struggled with reading, which led to a loss of confidence and interest. Stephanie made reading fun again! She found ways to connect with my creative daughter, creating games and exciting adventures around reading. Reading became fun again and a highlight of the week. My daughter is now back on track and loves reading. Thank you, Stephanie!
