Do you want to end the homework meltdowns that leave both you and your child frustrated?

Has your child been unable learn to read with traditional methods and they need a different approach?

Is your child falling through the cracks at school because they have gaps in their core skills of reading or math? 

I'm happy to meet your kid at whatever skill level they may be at.

Help your child feel confident and get the tools and strategies they need to make reading, spelling, comprehension or math easier.

One-on-one, individualized lessons build on your child's strengths and challenge them through creative games and activities that keep lessons light and fun. Building a relationship with each child and creating an optimal learning environment are a priority with each lesson. I work with kids with learning and developmental disabilities, as well as typically developing kids that struggle to pick up reading and math with traditional methods. Sensory integration techniques and additional therapeutic approaches can be built into lessons in order to create the optimal learning environment that meets each child's needs.

Lesson Information & Cost: Lessons are typically 50 minutes in length and take place at the Creative Learning Solutions office on the west side of Madison. The frequency of lessons is determined by what will work best for each family, and most families choose to have lessons one or two times per week. The cost of lessons is $70/lesson. If your adult child uses funding through IRIS, you can ask your case manager if lessons can be covered by funding.
