Michele Chisholm, Barton Reading and Spelling, dyslexia, Tutor, Salt Lake City, Utah

 Tutoring Services


We are dyslexia specialists in the Salt Lake area. We use a systematic reading program designed to help children who are diagnosed with dyslexia or children who exhibit several of the classic warning signs. We are certified Barton tutors and use the Barton Reading & Spelling System, which is an Orton-Gillingham method that is research-based and yields amazing results in reading, writing and spelling.


Students with dyslexia learn best when they use a multi-sensory approach.  The Barton Reading and Spelling System uses student's visual, auditory and kinesthetic pathways simultaneously to help students overcome language processing issues. This method creates an environment where students are better able to store and retrieve information.


The Barton System is most effective when it is administered beginning with level 1 and subsequent levels followed in order.  The levels do not correspond to specific grade levels.  They refer to concepts that are meant to be learned in order. There are 10 levels in the entire system and the typical duration a student will spend in the Barton Reading and Spelling System will be approximately 2-3 years.  Giving students with dyslexia the tools they will need to succeed for the rest of their lives is not a quick fix!








Your child must be able to pass the student screener below:

Each tutoring session is one-on-one and lasts 50 minutes.  A
