Teaching since:

My name is Laila. I am a mother of four children ages 21,18,17&12. I have BS in Computer Science and MS in Accounting. While raising up my children I volunteered at our community and worked closely with children. I decided to become a reading therapist after I faced challenges with one of my children who struggled with reading. I have been a member of the Phono-Graphix Reading Company Association since 2009. I helped many students with their Dyslexia learning difference. I also added to my skills and became familiar with Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia. I have been teaching students online from all over the USA as well as international students. My passion is to work with kids and help them succeed. I give the student a simple assessment to determine the challenges and I work closely with the student family to overcome the struggles.
Literacy is the key to success.

Laila is a truly exceptional instructor! Many years ago I mentored her as she studied the Phono-Graphix reading/spelling method. What a sharp and driven student she was. Since then, Laila has become a respected colleague and cherished friend of mine. Her love of learning and for her students shines forth in all that she does. She brings this, along with extensive experience and preparation to every lesson.

My daughter's reading skills have improved tremendously over that last year. We have found the tutoring sessions to be very helpful and beneficial.

My son was struggling with reading and it was affecting his performance at school. Laila's approach was very professional. She gave him a free test to determine the problem then started working with him. Her methods of teaching were different, fast and very effective. We could see results after a few sessions.
She is so passionate about teaching, approchable and warm. My son loved his lessons and I loved dealing with her.
