Welcome to Deep Roots Learning Solutions, Inc. We help students struggling with reading become capable and confident readers, spellers, and writers through personalized online instruction.
We use the Orton-Gillingham approach, coupled with other evidence-based techniques for teaching reading fluency, spelling, comprehension and writing, to build a program that's just right for your child.
Is your child struggling to keep up with reading and writing in school? Maybe they did fine in first and second grade, passing their assessments and following along with the class. They might have difficulty sounding out words but make up for it with a great sight word vocabulary and terrific comprehension.
But all of a sudden, they have hit fourth grade, or middle school, or high school, and the strategies they are using just aren’t cutting it anymore.
They might read slowly or reluctantly. They might have been terrific, fluent readers until the teacher asked them to “read to learn” instead of just “learning to read.” They might seem to read quickly but then struggle to answer the detail-oriented questions their teachers ask, or write about what they read.
Struggling students begin to feel embarrassed, anxious, frustrated – even stupid – as their peers leave them behind. And the older they get, the more those weak skills affect all their classes, even when they are amazing mathematicians, athletes, artists, and scientists.
That’s where we can help. Deep Roots Learning Solutions, Inc. offers individual or small group tutoring to bring your child up to grade level, build their confidence and help them reach their goals! We can fill in gaps in phonics and word-level skills, coach students to increase fluency and comprehension and teach strategies for organizing and managing big projects like reading and analyzing a novel or researching a topic.
We work with students with dyslexia, ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, or students who don’t have any diagnosis, but need a skills boost in reading and writing.
With the help of technology, our online students come from all around North America. We have tutored students in 19 different states (as well as 2 provinces of Canada) since Beth first moved her tutoring practice online in 2016.
