Reading / Writing / Spelling Foundations for K-5th

The most common cause of difficulties acquiring early word reading skills is  weakness in the ability to process the phonological features of language. Phonological and Phonemic Awareness can be measured at an early age and remediated with proper instruction. We implement the gold standard in private reading support, Orton-Gillingham.  Orton-Gillinghham is a multisensory, structured, sequential approach to teaching the phonic families of the English language. These lessons also focus on handwriting mechanics, basic speech articulation and  strengthens memory processing difficulties. 

  • Math. Math is an area where many students have difficulties due to the material building upon previous lessons. It can be hard to catch up on your own. We have multiple math tutors available at any given time so students can come by when it works best for them. We can help any age student. We focus on multi sensory hands on techniques for helping elementary aged students with basic math foundations and our college students get the support they need with higher level concepts and courses.  
  • Science. Like math, many areas in science rely on previous knowledge. Some of the most common areas where students come in for help are Physics and Chemistry. With one-on-one lessons, many students gain a further understanding after only a few sessions. Science and Technology are being emphasized more than ever in schools.  Your student needs to feel confident in their science skills to progress well.  
  • English. It’s much more than reading and spelling, especially at the high school level. We are instantly judged in life by our grasp of language and success in other subjects rely on a solid ability to express yourself with words. Strong English skills will give them a leg up in life. Whether the student needs help with a book report or with formatting a personal essay, our tutors have the skills to assist them.   
  • History. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Whether that’s US History, World History, Washington State History or studying current world problems, students can come by our tutoring center and get the help they need. We don’t rely on memorizing dates and facts, but rather we help connect the stories of our past to the relevant knowledge needed for a successful future.
