About Me

Charlotte NC Orton Gillingham Reading Tutor

My Methods & Tutoring Style Make a Difference.

Animal Therapy + Structured Tutoring = A Perfect Environment for your child

I am not your traditional tutor. I have mastered my craft using different methods to help children focus, learn, and become more aware of the world around them.

 

Meet Gigi and Buddy, our two Canine Reading & Tutor Assistants. They "listen patiently" and motivate your son or daughter to practice reading skills while at Pam's Reading. Gigi and Buddy are special assets and the children enjoy peeking at them in their crates and watching them sleep.

 

By sitting down next to a dog and reading to the dog, all threats of being judged are put aside. The child relaxes, pats the attentive dog, and focuses on the reading. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant.

 

Gigi & Buddy love human contact and can become a child’s best buddy. These relationships help to strengthen a child’s social skills, giving them the potential to do better in a school setting.

 

The Comments to me are my Reward!
