Does Your Child Know How To Decode Words?

Hello! I am Pam James, Your Personal Tutor!

Hello!  I am Pam James and I am a parent of a child with dyslexia.  I have experienced the same worry and concern when my child was not progressing, and an IEP with a diagnosis of a Specific Learning Disability.     In 2004, there were few resources to turn to at that time.  We did not know that the IEP testing indicated Dyslexia.  Multiple therapies and strategies were tried to improve reading. After many promises and a lot of money spent,  a Psychoeducational Evaluation at Child and Family Development told us about Orton Gillingham and recommended tutoring,  Since then, I learned about additional  conditions benefit from Orton Gillingham Tutoring such as those with Autism, ADHD, ADD, Auditory Processing, Executive Function, Dysgraphia, unidentified reading struggles and more.  I know what you are going through.  I have been there too.

In addition to private and volunteer tutoring, I have served as a Substitute Teacher at the Fletcher School in Charlotte, NC.  The Fletcher School serves students with learning differences by offering a multisensory, Orton Gillingham approach.  As a Professional Reading Tutor, I can help your child find the inner joy of reading and have fun while doing it!  My goal is to make it fun and enjoyable for your child while improving their reading skills!    My  Canine Reading Therapy Dogs have played a special and unique role for all these years. This is why I became a specialized reading tutor.

I empower children to believe in themselves and support them to become stronger, more enthusiastic readers.

Meet My Therapy Dogs…

 

Pam’s Reading Canine Therapy Dogs, Sadie and Buddy, provide a relaxed and “dog-friendly” atmosphere, which allows students to practice the skill of reading. Since the children all have difficulties reading and as a result some have developed self-esteem issues, Pam’s Reading Therapy dogs had added such a wonderful element of love and enjoyment to the environment.

Parent Reviews

“Ms. Pam has worked with our child who was diagnosed with dyslexia. Over the past four years, Ms. Pam has helped increase our daughter’s language art skills specific to reading comprehension, vocabulary and writing. Her confidence and love for reading has soared and we are so thankful! Ms. Pam’s unique style to reach the “whole” child and become a fluent, confident reader is such a gift and blessing to us. She is experienced in all grade levels, ranging from primary up to high school. As a mom and teacher, I highly recommend Ms. Pam as a reading tutor.”
“Pam is SO amazing! My daughter who has dyslexia was barely able to read when Pam started tutoring her. She knows how to make learning to read fun and enjoyable instead pressure and stress. She also knows what it is like to be a parent of a child who is struggling and she understands the fear and frustration that comes along with it. Her patience and understanding was so helpful to me. My daughter has come so far and is now in middle school and doing great! Thank you Pam! We love you!”

“My daughter had never been a very fluent reader and just didn’t enjoy reading overall. Every year, her teachers would say she was doing fine and would catch on. Fast forward to 7th grade. Her Language Arts grades were terrible. We had private testing done and found out that our daughter has mild phonemic dyslexia. We started tutoring with Pam the following month. Within a year, her grades have improved significantly. We couldn’t be more proud of our daughter. Pam is wonderful! So kind and caring! Highly recommend”
