 Tutoring Services

 

We are dyslexia specialists in the Salt Lake and Davis County areas. 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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before you come to your first appointment, please watch this Barton Intro DVD.  It will answer all of your basic questions, and then give you a 10 minute student screening to find out if your child is ready for the Barton System or not.

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

minimum of two sessions per week is required.

We offer services in Salt Lake and Utah Counties or for an additional fee we can arrange to go to your child's school (private schools only).

We also offer online tutoring for students who do not live in the area.
