Approach

Joanna will administer comprehensive assessments to determine your child’s strengths and weaknesses. This data will be used to create personalized sessions to target specific areas of need. Each session is generally an hour and builds on the previous session.

Joanna uses a combination of leveled reading, word activities, writing exercises, technology and games to target each student’s needs and interests. Students work on various combinations of the following skills, based on their specific needs:

• Oral and written comprehension
• Fluency
• Phonemic awareness
• Phonics/word study
• Handwriting
• Spelling
• Vocabulary
