Frequently Asked Questions

Dyslexia Tutoring

What program do you use for Tutoring?


We use the Orton-Gillingham methodology. We have taken our deep understanding of this multi-sensory apprach to learning, and created an in-house curriculum that is personalized to each students needs and interests.




Do you use the Barton Tutoring Program?


No, we do not use scripted or boxed programs (such as the Barton program) at our tutoring center, because we believe it is important to focus on each child's specific reading needs. We have several tutors who were trained as Barton tutors in the past, but we all believe that taking a personalized approach and addressing your child's specific dyslexic needs is far superior to a boxed program.




Does my child need to have a diagnosis of dyslexia to have tutoring?


No, a formal diagnosis of dyslexia or other reading disorder is not required for tutoring.
