Reading Equals Independence
Reading Equals Independence
It has been my privilege to tutor students over the past two decades. I have volunteered in the RISD school district, worked for 2 agencies, and now work independently. I take the student back to the basics of reading skills, and help students relearn how to read, this time, correctly. Most of my students have some learning differences such as dyslexia, auditory processing issues, Asperger's syndrome and other issues. I have worked with students as young as 5 and as old as 47+.

It has been my privilege to tutor students over the past two decades. I have volunteered in the RISD school district, worked for 2 agencies, and now work independently. I take the student back to the basics of reading skills, and help students relearn how to read, this time, correctly. Most of my students have some learning differences such as dyslexia, auditory processing issues, Asperger's syndrome and other issues. I have worked with students as young as 5 and as old as 47+. I tailor my curriculum to the needs of the individual. The only thing I assume is that he or she is intelligent and will succeed. Not long ago, a 9 year old student was failing at a local private school. After several months of work, he is now on the A-B Honor Roll. This was HIS work, with my skills methods giving him confidence to try.
Patient and Helpful
We've had about four or five sessions with Miss Louise and she's so patient and has really boosted my girls confidence. I also love that she always goes above and beyond giving me tips on how I can also have my girls excel!!!Lacasha, 5 lessons with Louise
Louise is a very personable teacher who has helped my son gain confidence as a student in school and jhas used so many nurturing methods. Her ways has made it clear to my son that he has benefitted off of her teachings. She has done an amazing job in identifying his problems and working with us to see him grow. She recognized his potential first hand and that really helped my son understand how well he could do in reading right off the bat. Louise is an absolutely wonderful teacher with a passion for helping students grow and succeed!Feven, 41 lessons with Louise
She really gets kids!
Louise has been an extremely kind and a wise tutor with my child. She's been working with us for a couple of months. Initially, my son was extremely resistant to writing. She has worked through his defiant behavior without taking it personally. (All the other tutors I have worked with, have always been really frustrated with his unwillingness. This resulted in me being angry with him, which only made things worse.) Louise just didn't give up, and he's really blossoming now. She's truly been amazing!Megan, 28 lessons with Louise
Louise is absolutely wonderful. She "won" my son over within minutes! He said she was super nice and that "he learned a lot!" They did more teaching/learning in 1 hour than I am able to accomplish with him in an entire evening! My son is really looking forward to the next session. Truly, Louise is a very experienced, professional, and effective teacher.Betty, 3 lessons with Louise
Mrs .Louise is very professional and patient

She has the patience of a saint, and a sense of humor that brings joy to teaching and being taught.Melanie, 107 lessons with Louise
Patient and Sensitive
I appreciate Louise's patience with Ian and her sensitivity to his fear of failure. Getting him to complete daily assignments is a struggle. We hope that he will learn the self-discipline necessary to see him through his education.Richard, 4 lessons with Louise
Great tutor! My son gained confidence and knowledge!
Ms. Louise is wonderful! She has a warm and calm disposition that is very refreshing; different from what we experience in the school. You can tell she just loves her students and teaching them. She is very patient and encouraging. My son looks forward to working with her every week and can't wait to learn. She has lots of unique tools to help my son and he enjoys the variety!Erin, 32 lessons with Louise
