Our son was challenged sounding out words, and at his advanced age, finding a phonics program that wasn't just for younger kids was impossible. Malea was able to develop a program as time progressed based on his specific problem areas she identified each lesson. She used a wide range of resources she knew about and searched diligently for new resources to help him. Not only did his phonics improve, his reading out loud skills improved and he grew more and more confident each week.

My 9 year old son started with Barbara over the summer to help him with his phonics. We were looking for someone who was certified in the Orton-Gillingham program and was happy to find Barbara. While he resisted the idea, he quickly took to her after just a few minutes allowing me to feel comfortable leaving him to learn from her right away.

We have been working with Brenda to teach my daughter phonics using Wyzant online tool. We are very impressed by three things from Brenda:
1) She is an expert in phonics. She knows how kids learn and she teaches my daughter very efficiently. When I teach my daughter myself, she didn't like to learn but with Brenda she looks forward to the lecture every time. 2) My daughter is five, therefore an online session can be challenging.
