One-on-One Instruction

Literacy Tutoring

The goal of tutoring is to see positive growth in literacy skills, increase confidence in reading and writing, and create lifelong readers. Your child may be struggling or need extra practice in learning to read, comprehension, vocabulary, writing, or reading fluently. We can work on all of these literacy skills so they no longer struggle in English Language Arts or so this doesn't develop later into a struggle in all subjects as reading and writing demands increase. We'll start with some diagnostic assessments along with supporting stories from the child, parents, and teachers. Determining the exact literacy needs is the first step to tailoring an educational plan specifically for your child.

All educational activities will be interactive and developmentally appropriate. We will regularly report on progress to parents and, if requested, to teachers. The goal is to provide each child with the support they need to be successful in all academic areas, which are based on solid literacy skills.

Tutoring can be set up in a one on one setting, or you can opt for your child to work in a small group of 2 to 3 students with similar skills and needs.

Music Lessons

We currently teach beginning piano, beginning violin and viola, and beginning through advanced cello lessons at The Treehouse Reading and Arts Center. Lessons are typically a 1/2 hour and in addition to learning the instrument, we also practice note reading and some music theory and history. We have a student playing party around the holidays (just for kids!) and host a recital for parents and guests in June to showcase all our hard work!
