47 Phonics lessons
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.
Linda has been working with my child who is currently a first grader for the last several months. She came recommended by a friend, and she has exceeded our expectations. After spring remote learning coupled with typical summer slide, we wanted to lay a good foundation in phonics and reading for our child prior to entering the first grade this past fall. Linda started with teaching him phonics and reading and that now has spilled over into spelling and writing, which are all interrelated.
