LEAP TUTORING ACADEMY + One-On-One Multisensory Orton-Gillingham

We are the solution for students struggling with reading, spelling, and comprehension.

Leap is a Tutoring Academy dedicated to children who are divergent thinkers. We specialize in working with children who have dyslexia as well as other learning disabilities. We have been most successful at being able to weave multisensory learning instruction into all aspects of learning. We find that ALL students benefit from a program of instruction that is appropriately aligned to their learning needs. Research has proven that our brains make the strongest neural connections through visual, auditory and tactile processing. Our students are smart, creative, “out of the box” thinkers who are highly successful with us.

Our Instructors

All Leap Tutoring Academy instructors are trained and certified teachers. They are trained in multi-sensory integration techniques in all subject areas. Reading and literacy instruction is provided following the Orton-Gillingham methodologies.

First Steps

A series of diagnostic evaluations (for ages 4 through 16) are given to determine current cognitive functioning in reading and mathematics. An examination of processing strengths and weakness is analyzed in order to determine your child’s potential. This is done in our warm and friendly environment. We begin by assessing your child’s individual needs and provide recommendations for academic intervention.
