First time was great

We've only done one session with Jan so far for my dyslexic, ADHD twins so far and felt that she is very knowledgeable with Orton Gilligham techniques and helping young kids with special needs. We plan to continue weekly lessons with Jan. We are excited to see their progress with Jan's expertise and support.

Makes it fun!

You can tell just from our first two lessons that Jan is very in tune with whats needed! Looking forward to seeing my son grow with her support! She is patient and incorporates topics he likes along with keying in on his specific needs

Introductory class

Very patient and helpful with her student. Seeks to understand the needs of the student, and cater to the student. Admirable ability to relate to the student. Identifies with the student at their level, and that is very comforting.
