Initial Assessment and Profile Writing
New families joining the center are asked to provide Karin, Lana, or Neil with any assessments that have been completed on their child. We will analyze these assessments, and do additional assessments as needed. After all, information has been analyzed we will write a detailed profile on your child indicating areas of strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. This gives their teacher the information they need to plan their student’s programs so that they are being taught the way that they learn.

Where We’re Located
Karin Holm has a professional tutoring space and classroom situated on her property. Orton-Gillingham tutoring involves a variety of materials and it is easier for her to work out of a classroom space versus travelling to her clients. Each student has his/her own learning style and not every child requires the use of the same materials. Karin’s classroom allows her to work with children in group situations as well as to have her materials set up specifically for the needs of the students coming into her room. Her private tutoring space gives her the flexibility to adapt to her students needs during the lessons while having close accessibility to her supplies.
