Read to Succeed
Welcome! We are so excited to help your child on his or her literacy journey! We only tutor students that we think we can help, and we take this commitment very seriously. We use the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading that incorporates phonics and fluency work. This is a direct, explicit, sequential, systematic, multi-sensory research based intervention. It has been life changing for us professionally and for many of our students. We have many students continue on to college or tech school and become successful in life.
Fall sessions will begin mid September. Each session lasts 50 minutes, and your fee includes the additional 40 minutes it takes us to write your child’s specific lesson plan and prepare the materials.
Sessions: $55 per session
This includes the additional 40 minutes prep time.
Initial Assessment: $150
For all new students/clients we will need to administer an assessment to best serve your student.
Payment: You can pay us weekly or monthly, that is up to you. We can email you an invoice at the end of each month if you decide to pay monthly. We take cash, check or Venmo (a service fee may be applied).
Starla’s approach to reading is about fun, building on strengths, and learning new strategies to words. Never did I think my daughter would “like” reading, but in just 3 short months of tutoring with Starla, she has new confidence and tools to make reading fun, not a source of frustration!
