We help children read & learn

And parents breathe a sigh of relief.

Support for struggling students. And concerned parents.

Learning to read shouldn’t be a struggle.

We offer one-on-one reading lessons for children who do struggle to learn reading and spelling ~ in either English or French.

Our team of certified teachers and speech language pathologists observe an Orton-Gillingham based approach which is appropriate for all students: those who are lagging 3 or more months behind their peers and those who have dyslexia (specific reading disability).

All our students receive an individualized learning plan and work to mastery, at their own pace.
