Decoding and Spelling Program
The highly structured linguistics method of instruction applies a multisensory approach to building decoding, fluency, and spelling skills. Lessons are systematic and sequential, each one building on previously learned material in a step-by-step manner.
The linguistics method will both improve the reading skills of your child and provide him/her with a solid understanding of the rules which govern our language. Signs your child may benefit from the decoding and spelling program include:

Study Skills Program
This program of study is geared towards the individual needs of the student. I use a variety of unique visual and organizational strategies to help students of all ages learn how to study and retain information.
A Personal Approach

Consistency is key to your child’s success.
