Frequently, when students have problems with reading and spelling, the difficulty lies in the beginning skills, such as:
hearing and identifying each sound in a word (phoneme awareness),
connecting the sounds to the letters, or strings of letters, that represent them (phonics), and
recognizing and interpreting parts of longer words with prefixes, roots, and suffixes (morphology).
I focus on helping students with to learn these skills.
In 2015, I started using the Orton-Gillingham approach. With the logical sequence and focus on the structure of the language, I became more effective at helping students make sense of English spelling. Inspired to learn more, I completed a training and practicum at the local Children’s Dyslexia Center and became a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP).
I would love to meet with you and your child to see how I can help.

"[My son] has grown so much with your help and guidance. We truly appreciate everything you do for him! He’s come leaps and bounds thanks to you!!"
"Thank you for all the work you've been doing with him. He read a whole book to his teacher at school the other day (I guess he only had to do a chapter, but kept going) and she was so impressed she sent me an email (and a copy of the book, ha ha!)."
"Marian is very helpful and can accommodate each student's needs. She has been able to customize lesson plans to address the specific difficulties that my daughter was having. In classrooms, the instruction is often for a whole group of children, but with Marian, each student is considered as a unique individual, with unique needs. The tutoring is one-on-one, and I feel like my daughter is progressing more, because she is getting more individual attention."
"Marian has been my tutor for the past two years in the language arts. I have found her to be professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful."
