Philosophy

Perfect Practice Tutoring is a home-based business founded on the principle that all children can learn to read.  It is my belief that success breeds success. Children are instructed on the edge of their comfort zones to optimize growth.  As students gain confidence through positive experiences, they are willing to take risks resulting in accelerated learning.  By setting short-term, attainable goals and tracking progress toward those goals, students develop educational empowerment.

All areas of literacy are addressed: phonological awareness, phonics, decoding, fluency, comprehension, and written communications.  This is accomplished through diagnostic assessment and explicit, detailed program development.  Each tutoring session is designed to capitalize on student strengths while supporting and strengthening areas of challenge. 

Students who are struggling to meet literacy expectations need to learn and master an efficient system for learning.  Instead of molding a child to fit a predesigned program model, Perfect Practice Tutoring develops a customized method for reading and writing designed specifically for your child's learning needs. 

I look forward to working with you and your child toward a brighter future!
