We help learners realize their potential.

We understand that there is a broad range of neurodiversity within dyslexia. Some students need support with math, academic writing, visual and/or auditory processing. We can help! Our students learn differently, and we support them in developing the skills they need to become confident, independent learners.

In addition to Orton-Gillingham Instruction and Executive Function Coaching, we offer the following services:

Length: 50 min sessions
Frequency: minimum of 2 sessions/week
Cost: $95/session

1:1 Remedial Math Instruction

Students who have difficulty processing math will benefit from working with a 1:1 math instructor. Our instructors work with students to fill in any gaps in math knowledge and work towards bringing each student to grade level.

Instructors begin at a student’s level of understanding and build from there, so students can make progress and feel successful.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’d like guidance to determine which program is right for you, please feel free to get in touch.

Our policy for OG Instruction, NILD Educational Therapy and Remedial Math is to provide a minimum of two sessions per week per semester. Research shows that the frequency of at least two sessions per week is needed for students to maximize the benefits of 1:1 remediation.

This depends on what the learning issues are. We work “as fast as we can and as slow as we need to.” Our goal is to build your child’s skills in reading, writing, math, and executive functioning so that they gain the confidence to take on academic challenges.

If your child is unable to attend a session for any reason, a maximum of two sessions per term will be rescheduled. 24 hours notice required to cancel a session. In the event that inadequate notice of cancellation is provided, the session is deemed to be forfeited. Make-up sessions will be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time between instructor and student.
