More Information

Sibling and/or bi-weekly session discount:

There is a $5 a week discount for families sending 2 children or families wanting 2 scheduled sessions per week. $10 discount per week if your family is enrolled in both of these situations.

Reading Backpack (included in session pricing)

This is a take-home backpack with 2-3 beginning readers that are on your child’s level. My books are leveled using a system by Fountas and Pinell. Most schools in this area use the same leveled reading system.  This is an excellent resource for families because it is often difficult to find and interpret the level of early reader books you may find in the library.

Extended Reading Backpack (optional $20 per month)

This weekly, take-home backpack includes spelling and math games, leveled books, reading comprehension stories, and dry erase activities that focus on math, writing, reading, and spelling. This offers an alternative to traditional paper-pencil homework practice.

Preparation Time

My older groups require more prep time and communication with parents, school, doctors, and advocates. I often assist in completing school or doctor referral forms and questionnaires. All my elementary-aged lessons are designed to follow what your child is learning in school, ex. spelling words or sight words of the week and reinforcing math concepts in a similar manner that is being taught in school. I encourage families to share newsletters, homework, and work from school.
