Phonics tutoring integrates the Reading Roadmap Phonics Curriculum with Custom Programming. These tutoring sessions comprise introductory lessons to each phonics rule, alongside loads of creative multisensory games, for a well-rounded reading instruction.


In our reading tutoring sessions, we will prioritize read-aloud activities aimed at enhancing reading comprehension, vocabulary development, grammar and critical thinking skills. Families also have the option for students to be assessed using the A-Z reading levels to identify independent reading levels for home reading purposes. These sessions merge Custom Programming with the Rooted In Reading curriculum.


Phonics, reading and writing assessments are available upon request following the required initial placement assessment. These assessments include a meeting with the parents to discuss results and progress and are conducted by the end of each unit or quarterly, depending on the curriculum. A written document of progress is shared via OneDrive and paper copy in the student's tutoring folder/binder.


The writing tutoring sessions focus on elementary learners' writing fundamentals. Our curriculum combines Custom Programming with lessons and activities from the Susan Jones Teaching Writing Club. This provides an all-in-one writing experience for your students, making learning fun and easy with the latest research-based methods.

Whole Child

Whole-child tutoring is a holistic learning session that focuses on concepts such as social-emotional learning, nature, mindfulness, character education, executive functioning, and social skills. Through custom programming and curriculums like The Little Spot Curriculum , students have the opportunity to grow and connect, continuing their learning journey.

Alternative Curriculum

Alternative curriculum options is available to assist families who wish to adhere to their chosen curriculum or enhance it for a slightly higher rate. Families can supplement or replace other curriculum options, whether chosen independently for homeschooling or provided by schools, for an additional fee. I understand the importance of accommodating families' individual homeschooling plans and offer creative learning solutions to help implement them."
