We offer tutoring for all ages in the Ottawa area. Both children and adults can benefit from our reading intervention programs.  If you are in another location, please see our Online Tutoring Page.


A screener and one of our qualified tutors come to your house to meet you and your child, and to conduct a short free screening with the student. This allows us to determine the best path forward for the student.  

We use a variety of programs depending on the student's needs.  The primary program we use is the Orton-Gillingham-based program called The Barton Reading & Spelling System.  These programs have been proven effective by independent scientific research*, and are recommended by leading experts as well as the International Dyslexia Association.


The tutor works with the student at least two times per week. This can be done at a variety of locations including your home.
