This is a bi-weekly program with classes between 2-5pm on Wed & Fri, that is $25/lesson for two 25 minute sessions a week and $35/lesson for two 30 minute sessions a week. I use several learning enrichment programs and other supplemental programs that are age and grade appropriate as well as morally and Biblically sound. Parents must be willing to purchase curriculum which is a $40 initial cost and the child must have access to a tablet or ipad. For tutoring, parent or teacher need to provide current classroom material. I love unlocking the mystery of reading through a variety of lovable characters, general games and computer games in bite sized increments that are comforting and exciting and not threatening, demeaning or discouraging.

All of my lessons are designed to foster a love for reading or music and focus on your reading and Phonics goals or your dream in the music world as well as build knowledge and expertise for both!
Whether it be a specific genre, general, academic reading or repertoire, just not wanting to stumble over words or just wanting to play or sing the songs you enjoy, I have the curriculum and supplemental material to reach your reading or music goals!
Beginner? We can get you started on the right foot! I have experience with adult beginners, seniors and children of all ages. I have special curriculum and activities that enhance interest, reduce stress and help you to maintain what you learn.
Pre-schoolers have a curriculum all their own that teaches phonics, reading or music through lovable animal characters with games on tablet, computer and other resources that teach, reinforce and excite their hearts to learn and retain what they learn.
Does your child have some knowledge but just has not excelled in phonics or reading? We can tailor lessons for just that.
Maybe you have some music knowledge but just can't play or sing that special song? We can tailor lessons for that, too!
Maybe your child knows letters and sounds but just hasn't made the leap to reading? We can tailor the lessons to get your child from point B to Z!
Can you read music but not play on your own? Can you play by ear and not read music? I have experience bridging the gaps.
Is your dream to become a Soloist, harmonizer or karaoke star? Accompany yourself or others or just play for fun? Then why not you and I embark on that exciting journey together!
Is your dream just for your child to be able to read at grade level or above? I will give it my all for them to do so.
Is your dream to become a church musician or play for a choir? or Are you already a church musician but need help with a particular song, program or musical?
Worship to Him and service to others is the reason that I do what I do!
Try us! You'll be glad you did!!!!
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor, though the classes are very well structured.
Usually, we progress with a chosen curriculum according to the student's or parent's vision and initial overview during the 1st few classes. However, all curriculums are supplemented to enhance student performance and comprehension. Our supplemental material is used to go swifter for material that you grasp well and understand, and slower with more repetition for that that you need more practice, without being monotonous. It is also used to provide appropriate but exciting reinforcement of all material to ensure that material is retained.
We are forever updating material and also incorporate games and enhanced activities to keep lessons interesting and refreshing as well!
I also have experience in teaching autistic, ADD, ADHD and those with varying degrees of brain damage.

If you've ever struggled to explain to your child why a word says what it does or is spelled the way it is, please join me for a one hour seminar in Phonics for Parents.
To many emerging readers, English can seem to be a frustrating jumble of exceptions. For nearly a century, many students have been taught grossly oversimplified phonics that generate thousands of exceptions. That approach works for some students, but many struggle - especially rule-following, logical, literal students. Indeed, nearly two thirds of 4th and 8th graders read below grade level.
Thankfully, English follows a deliciously rich and robust code with remarkable consistency - and in fact, fully 98% of English words are phonetically regular. The Phonics for Parents seminar is one hour of intensive instruction designed to give literate adults the tools needed to unlock the code and become a literacy superhero. You'll come away with insights that have left many wondering "how did I not know this before
--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.

I have taught reading to over a hundred students and counting. I am a published and awarded poet currently in my second year at the Creative Writing MFA at Syracuse University.
I teach reading to all age and skill levels, so I know where a student has been, where they need to be, and how to get them there. I work hard with students to set the goals that can bring out their best potential.
I teach struggling readers and gifted readers. I teach everything from phonics to speed reading to tools to maximize creative/critical interpretation. I teach fiction, textbooks, and poetry.
I love books as much as I love anything. Books have helped me learn how to be human - compassionate, curious, joyful. Books have opened doors to new worlds and shed new colors on the world I live in. Books have taught me to understand perspectives different than my own, that everyone is right. Books have provided solace when I needed it, and entertainment when I wanted it, and have brought more meaning

I help children who are struggling with spelling and reading.
I use the Barton Reading & Spelling System, a highly effective Orton-Gillingham based system.
I work one-on-one with students either online or in Oakton, Virginia.
I have homeschooled my two children since 2002. My son was homeschooled until he entered the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a highly selective specialized high school in Northern Virginia. He is now a student at at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science. I continue to homeschool my 13 year old daughter.
My most treasured memories are of teaching both my children to read, knowing the great gift of reading is a fundamental building block to a successful life.
I have worked with other children for seven years as a robotics coach and a coac
I decided to become a Barton tutor after I saw so many of my friends' dyslexic children succeed with the Barton system. One of my first students was my own nephew!
I have been using the system as a tutor since February, 2017. I graduated from the University of New Brunswick with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology-Psychology. I have loved caring for, educating and working with children for my entire adult life, and I will dedicate myself completely to the success of your child, using a proven, evidence-based system to teach dyslexic children to read and spell.
