With over 36 years in the education filed, I understand that the classroom is often the first place where confidence is learned or unlearned. With this in mind, I meet with both the parent and the child to understand what some of the issues that the parent and child are facing. Using the diagnostic assessment, I create a personalized and individualize program that fits your child’s individual needs whether it is remediation, acceleration, or enrichment.
As a certified Special Educator I have seen children struggle in many areas. Alongside my teaching I have received extensive training in the area of reading. It is this that I have decided to support more children on line in a one to one setting.
My name is Ann Mitchell and I have been a certified teacher for 10 yrs and a tutor since 2013. I look forward in working with your family to help your child excel.
Joanne Kaminski has been tutoring kids all over the world using Skype and Zoom since 2010. She is able to close the gap a full year with 8-12 hours of instruction. She is a best-selling author on Amazon and has written 8 books. One of her best-seller books How to Become a Better Reader has helped hundreds of homeschooling parents help their struggling reader. As a child, Joanne struggled with reading as well. She was placed in the lowest reading groups and wasn’t able to take part in a foreign language class in Middle School. Then one day, everything began to click. Today Joanne makes this happen for kids all over the world and she is helping them become life-long readers and learners. Joanne’s students get better test scores on their MAPS testing, state testing, and their guided reading level benchmarks.

We offer a FREE assessment for all primary pupils. Our students work on an individualised learning programme.
We work by:
– reinforcing material covered in school
– providing a stimulating and interesting learning environment for children, both online and at the centre
– using IT to engage students
– setting achievable goals and giving weekly feedback to parents
– setting homework to reinforce the learning from our tuition sessions.
We believe that every child should reach their full potential. Each student has a tailor-made programme to meet their specific needs, whether they are struggling in class, have special needs or are gifted in Maths or English and need further enrichment.
Children I tutor receive multisensory, direct, systematic instruction which dramatically improves their abilty to sound out words when reading and spelling. I can help your struggling child get to grade level and beyond in reading, writing and spelling.
I offer one-on-one tutoring to children and youth. I use the Barton Reading & Spelling System, which is designed to help children with dyslexia learn to decode words and spell effectively. The Barton System is based on the Orton-Gillingham principles, which have been proven to work to help struggling readers succeed.
Your child does not need to have been diagnosed with dyslexia in order for this system of tutoring to work. I specialize in working with children and youth who have at least three warning signs of dyslexia. Contact me to find out more about the warning signs of dyslexia.
Tutoring offered for children of all ages and grade levels in Reading, writing, English, language arts and literature.
I have been a Reading Specialist since 2005 and have experience with students from Pre-K 2 through High School. For over 5 years, I taught in the traditional classroom settings, working with students labeled “At-Risk”, “Special Needs”, “Gifted” and many more. Since leaving the classroom, I have seen students on a private basis and have found that the common factor between both my sets of students has been motivation. When we are motivated we can do just about anything! My goal is not only to close learning gaps in struggling readers but to create a life long love of reading in children!
